Spring football game: Bradenton Christian 41, Shorecrest 35

At Shorecrest in St. Petersburg

Bradenton Christian 41, Shorecrest 35

Spring game-breakers: The Chargers needed to find a playmaker to replace quarterback Hunter Tremaine, who is graduating. Jules Jouffroy showed he is capable of being one. Jouffroy, a rising senior, scored twice on short runs and returned a kickoff 95 yards for a touchdown. His third score, a 22-yard run, was set up on a 46-yard run by Dakota Hirsch off a fake punt. Jouffroy's final big play came on a 66-yard run that set up a 2-yard touchdown plunge from Hirsch on a quarterback sneak. …Alex Drexler had a 13-yard touchdown run in the second quarter for Shorecrest's other score and ran in a 2-point conversion. …The Chargers had trouble stopping the Panthers' R.J. Schooler, who scored three times, including an 84-yard touchdown run that gave Bradenton Christian a 28-27 lead.

Did you know? With the score tied at 35, Shorecrest marched down to the Panthers' 28-yard line but the drive stalled on a lost fumble. …Bradenton Christian converted a fourth and 2 on a run by Schooler to keep a drive alive and set up the winning score, a 1-yard run by quarterback Sean McCarthy with 17 seconds remaining. …Schooler left the game in the final minute with cramps. …Shorecrest tried some trickery with fakes off kicks (two punts, one field goal). Only one was successful. …There were six lead changes in the game. …The Chargers will have just four seniors this coming season. …Bradenton Christian had just 18 players available for Friday's game.

Audible: "Jules did a nice job of making some plays. So did Alex Drexler. A lot of that is from the offensive line doing the job up front. We have a lot of young guys there. On defense, we have to do a better job of wrapping up." — Shorecrest coach Phil Hayford

  1. Rays blow lead in ninth, lose in 10 to Rangers (w/video)

    The Heater

    ST. PETERSBURG — Rays manager Kevin Cash liked the way Alex Cobb was competing Friday night. 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.

    The Heater

    Looks like LF Corey Dickerson is coming out of his funk at the plate — .186 average in past 16 games entering Friday. He had two hits Wednesday in Oakland and three hits Friday against the Rangers. Okay, one was an infield hit that bounced high in front of the plate, but the other was a long home run to …

  5. History shows Ole Miss upheaval tough to overcome


    After Mississippi football coach Hugh Freeze resigned Thursday, with the opener six weeks away, offensive line coach Matt Luke is being thrown into an interim head coaching position. He will try to save a season that already had been scarred by a self-imposed bowl ban for NCAA violations.

    After coach Jim Tressel resigned, Ohio State went 6-7, including a loss to Florida in the Gator Bowl, in 2011.
