Spring football: Lennard 20, East Bay 6; Spoto 13, Riverview 0

at Riverview

Lennard 20, East Bay 6; Spoto 13, Riverview 0

Spring game-breakers: After allowing Anthony Hollingshed's 15-yard score, which capped East Bay's 10-play, 70-yard opening drive, Lennard struck quickly. It needed five plays to tie it on Josh Shellman's 2-yard run. After forcing a punt, it needed four plays to take the lead on Jahryn Bailey's 1-yard run. … That duo accounted for the game's longest plays, Shellman's 58-yard run and Bailey's late 63-yard score. … East Bay quarterback Ian Kuykendall ran a game-high 15 times for 38 yards … Spoto's Todd Sims ran for two touchdowns, 17 and 53 yards, and a game-high 91 yards.

Did you know? Riverview and Spoto combined for five wins last season. … The Sharks did not get into the red zone until the final minute with the Spartans fairing slightly better on two scoring drives off of two big plays.

Audible 1: "We've been trying to get a little more physical up front." — Lennard coach Keith Chattin on an offensive line anchored by right tackle Rowdy Driggers and center Jaykob Hafer

Audible 2: "We're going to be a handful in the running game. (Bailey is) going to be impressive." — Chattin

    The Heater

    RHP Alex Cobb hates to hear how he "battled through" or "grinded out" a start rather than just dominated, but that's kind of what he did Friday, allowing nine hits and a walk and being charged with two wild pitches but only three runs in earning his 12th win.

    Lightning Strikes

    TAMPA — The wait felt like forever for Lightning captain Steven Stamkos, having gone 10 months without playing in a game.

    A scramble in front of the Lightning goal has Matthew Peca, far left, and Erik Cernak, middle, helping out goalie Andrei Vasilevskiy during the third period of a 3-1 win against the Predators. Vasilevskiy, who made 29 saves, was “exceptional,” coach Jon Cooper says.
