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. Trevor Plouffe is DFA'd by Rays, Kittredge recalled for now


    INF Trevor Plouffe didn't do much with the opportunity the Rays gave him, and time ran out Tuesday when he was designated for assignment after the game.

    Plouffe hit just .178, with one homer and two RBIs, in 31 games for the Rays, his primary playing time from starting at first or third against lefties.

    ST. PETERSBURG — The drought was so severe that it's still probably too soon to say the Rays are out of it, but scoring a half-dozen runs in Tuesday's 6-5 win over the Blue Jays was another promising sign.

    C Wilson Ramos, coming off right knee surgery, often takes it easy on the bases, though it's not always a good look. But he hustled when he needed to Tuesday and got the Rays a run by beating out a two-out infield single, finishing with three more hits.
