Spring football game: Springstead 14, Pinellas Park 14

At Pinellas Park

Springstead 14, Pinellas Park 14

Spring game-breakers: Springstead trailed 14-0 before a fourth-quarter comeback led by quarterback Brian Beeker. First he connected on a fourth-and-5 pass to Ryan Buckley to keep a late drive alive. Then Beeker ran in a touchdown from 40 yards out to cut the deficit to 14-6. Eagles running back Devin Huff then brought the Eagles within two on a touchdown run. A two-point conversion pass from Beeker to Tom Hyde tied the score with 49 seconds left.

Audible 1: "We've got some work to do. After a long bus ride and the way it went early, it would have been easy to hang their heads. They didn't; they picked up their intensity. …I'm pleased with the way we hung in there." — Springstead coach Bill Vonada

Audible 2: "We had a number of people make plays. Brian Beeker made good decisions. Huff made some nice runs. The intensity picked up as the game went on." — Vonada

    RHP Chris Archer's primary problem Sunday, as in much of September, was a lack of slider command. When he can't throw it where he wants, and doesn't have the confidence in the changeup to throw it often, he can't win with just his fastball.

    LOUDON, N.H. — Kyle Busch saw little but billowing white smoke that engulfed the track and blinded enough drivers that it caused a tremendous wreck that notably altered the race running order.

    Kyle Busch celebrates with a burnout after his third victory of the season that earns a berth in the second round of NASCAR’s playoffs. He also has some fun with Loudon the Lobster.
