Football: Tampa Bay Tech 31, Durant 10

DURANT — It turned out to be a long night for Durant and not just because of a 40-minute lightning delay.

Tampa Bay Tech dual-threat quarterback Deon Cain accounted for 354 of his team's 436 offensive yards and four touchdowns in a 31-10 victory over the Cougars on Thursday.

Cain passed for 261 yards and two scores and rushed for 93 and two TDs.

Tampa Bay Tech is 1-1 while Durant, one year removed from an 11-1 season, dropped to 0-3.

Durant quarterback Trey VanDeGrift passed for 65 yards and was responsible for three of his team's four turnovers with three late interceptions.

Cain scored from a yard out in the first quarter and hit Deon Thompson on a screen pass that resulted in a 54-yard score just before halftime. In the second half Cain connected with Tajee Fullwood on a 47-yard TD and closed with a 59-yard touchdown run.

    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.

    BALTIMORE — RHP Alex Cobb pitched well enough to lead the Rays to an 8-3 win over the Orioles on Friday.

    Wilson Ramos gives thanks after hitting a grand slam during the second inning, putting the Rays up 4-0.
