St. Petersburg 58, Northeast 22

ST. PETERSBURG — St. Petersburg scorched Northeast's defense Friday, burning a path on the ground in victory.

Rashad Lewis, Malik Wilson and Ben Sams continued their dominance, combining for 309 rushing yards and five touchdowns on the ground. Lewis added one catch out of the backfield, a 26-yard scoring strike from David Jones, en route to three total scores.

"Coming into this game a lot of people thought Northeast had the hardest-running backs," Lewis said. "We took that to heart. We believe we have the hardest-running backs and we had to prove that tonight."

An opportunistic Green Devils defense scored twice.

The Vikings' Daryl Copeland carried 10 times for 61 yards. In the final minute, Jovonte Brinson returned a pick 89 yards for a TD.

    While Steven Stamkos and Nikita Kucherov grab the headlines, don't sleep on their linemate, Vladislav Namestnikov. Namestnikov is far from a third wheel, with eight points in eight games. "He might not have the names the other two have, but he's as pivotal and vital to that line as the others," coach Jon Cooper said.
