Spring football: Canterbury 16, Central Florida Christian 0

At Orlando

Canterbury's Dominique Thornton ran for a touchdown and threw for another as the Crusaders went on the road and shut out Central Florida Christian over one half on Saturday.

Thornton went over the right side on an option keeper and ran 65 yards for a touchdown for Canterbury's first score.

Later in the half, Crusaders tight end Desean Thomas made a one-handed grab on a pass from Thornton and outran the Central Florida Christian defense for a 61-yard touchdown.

The Crusaders' Brent O'Neal ran in both two-point conversions.

Canterbury was supposed to play another half against Oak Hill, but it was cancelled after lightning moved into the area.

He liked the way the hard contact made by the Rangers batters went away after the second or third inning. So as the game headed toward the ninth, there was no doubt in Cash's mind that sending Cobb back to the mound was …

    Rays starter Alex Cobb can hardly believe what just happened as he leaves the game in the ninth after allowing a leadoff double then a tying two-run homer to the Rangers’ Shin-Soo Choo.
