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.

    ST. PETERSBURG — Chaim Bloom said the Rays weren't necessarily in the market for a shortstop. The team has a number of those. But when the Marlins recently began shopping Adeiny Hechavarria, well, that was too much to pass up.

    Adeiny Hechavarria has emerged as one of baseball’s top defensive shortstops in the past three seasons with the Marlins.
