Sunlake 10, River Ridge 7

NEW PORT RICHEY — Sunlake can take its 10-7 victory over River Ridge on Friday as something to build on for next season.

The Seahawks (4-6) capitalized on an early mistake by the Knights (3-7), who were driving. River Ridge quarterback Kenny Toce completed a 22-yard pass to Zack Ford to the Seahawks' 5-yard line but was stripped.

Sunlake took advantage and Jordan Landry gave the Seahawks a 3-0 lead with a 26-yard field goal.

River Ridge came out running after halftime, and senior Stavros Arianas punched his way into the end zone on a 4-yard run. He finished with 118 yards on 14 carries.

On the next series the Seahawks reclaimed the lead after a 6-yard run by Alex Rodriguez.

"It's going to be interesting to see how Sunlake looks next year," River Ridge coach Tim Stevens said. "That's a talented team, a young talented team."

River Ridge got the ball back at its 3-yard line with 1:11 left. On fourth and 13, Toce's pass came up 1 yard short of the first down.

  3. Koetter: Jameis Winston will test shoulder in practice Friday


    Will he? Won't he? It appears the Bucs' uncertainty over whether quarterback Jameis Winston can play through a shoulder injury Sunday at Buffalo will carry up until the final hours before kickoff.
