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.

    The goal posts still seem to be moving for Roberto Aguayo.

    The Bucs woebegone place-kicker, who is in a battle with veteran Nick Folk, went 1-for-4 in field goal tries from 35-40 yards Tuesday on a set of narrow uprights, the first day of full squad Organized Team Activities.
