St. Petersburg Catholic 40, Steinbrenner 10

LUTZ — St. Petersburg Catholic relied on its defense to put the first points on the board in each half en route to a district victory.

"We were banged up and missing some kids," Barons coach Tod Creneti said. "We had to have some other guys prove they could make plays."

After the Barons went three and out on their opening possession, Julian Smith intercepted a Warriors pass and returned it 47 yards for the first score. Steinbrenner quickly came back and tied it when Christian Carriere hit Tobi Antigha for an 18-yard touchdown.

After that it was all Barons as their offense spread the wealth among eight runners and four receivers.

The SPC defense scored another touchdown to open the second half when Evan Holmes intercepted a pass and returned it 21 yards in the third quarter.

    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.
