Spring football: Canterbury 24, Shorecrest 0

at St. Petersburg

Canterbury 24, Shorecrest 0

Spring game-breakers: Equipped with "18 strong" on the roster, Canterbury showed a fast-paced, up-tempo offense and a stout defense. Sophomore Dontrell Green did most of his damage on the ground in the first half and scored on a 5-yard touchdown. …Freshman quarterback Josh Belton moved the ball well in the air for the Crusaders, consistently finding Hunter Coia and Zion Roland on seam routes. …Belton also rushed for a touchdown and O'Shon Allen's fourth-quarter score effectively iced the game. …Shorecrest flipped between quarterbacks Sam Grant and Travis Dugan; both had solid moments but Grant was picked off twice by Roland. … An illegal participation call nullified Shorecrest's touchdown from Grant to Cooper Wolf.

Audible 1: "We were going to go up tempo, sink or swim tonight because that's what we've worked so hard on. These 18 kids showed their toughness and conditioning. And they are mostly underclassmen so I'm looking forward to the summer with this group." — Canterbury coach Bill Jones

Audible 2: "Dontrell is the emotional leader on our team offensively and defensively. He is a heck of a football player and when he gets rolling, everyone follows his lead." — Jones

    The Heater

    ST. PETERSBURG — It was still a game in the fifth inning when LHP Blake Snell walked the leadoff batter, then allowed a single. One swing by the Cubs' Ian Happ (22 home runs) could put a dent in the Rays' three-run lead.

    Blake Snell allows just two hits in pitching seven scoreless innings.

    The Heater

    ST. PETERSBURG — The first foray back to the Trop by the best manager the Rays have had obscured the second return visit by arguably the second-best player in franchise history.

    Figures.

    Chicago Cubs second baseman Ben Zobrist (18) grounds into a double play to end the top of the third inning of the game between the Chicago Cubs and the Tampa Bay Rays at Tropicana Field in St. Petersburg, Fla. on Wednesday, Sept. 20, 2017.

    One success story of this lost season is the emergence of LHP Blake Snell as the frontline starter the Rays projected. After a rough start and two demotions, he has been rolling, Wednesday's solid seven innings making him 4-0, 2.57 in his past eight starts.
