Golf: East Lake boys a close second at Outback Invitational

OLDSMAR — A little over two weeks ago at Wentworth Golf Club, Jesuit defeated host East Lake by six strokes at the East Lake Invitational.

Monday at the Outback Invitational, Jesuit again clipped the Eagles, this time on East Lake Woodlands Country Club's North Course.

But the Eagles are inching closer.

East Lake's underclassman-dominated lineup of five juniors and one freshman came within two strokes of the Tigers. The Eagles finished with a team score of 312 to place second. Jesuit claimed the title at 310.

"We're still a young team," East Lake coach Terry O'Reilly said. "We're developing, but we're making improvement. Since (the East Lake Invitational), we've shot 151, which is the lowest we've shot in two years."

East Lake was paced by Zack Wood at 1-over 73. Steven Abersold (79) had the second-best round for East Lake, and Sebastian Hilpl and Parker Fox each carded 80.

"The future looks good," O'Reilly said. "They're developing and working real hard. I think they want it bad. We had an idea of a number we wanted to shoot today, and we missed it by three."

St. Petersburg's Jake Kevorkian was within a stroke of earning individual honors. Kevorkian shot par 72 to take second.

Fivay's Austin Padova (71) birdied three of the final four holes to edge Kevorkian by a stroke.

St. Petersburg lost a tiebreaker for third with Orlando Dr. Phillips after both shot 314. Besides Kevorkian's low round, Blake Dyer shot 78, Zach Monowar 81 and Jack Maguire 83 for St. Petersburg.

Clearwater Central Catholic's Martin Fennemore (75) placed eighth and the Marauders were eighth in the team standings.

Brett Hajian had the lowest round for Palm Harbor University, which was a stroke behind CCC in ninth. Hajian tied for ninth individually at 4-over 76.

  1. Rowdies settle for draw at home


    ST. PETERSBURG — The good news for the Rowdies is that they still haven't lost a game at Al Lang Stadium since late April. The bad news is they had to settle for a 1-1 tie against Ottawa on Saturday night in front of 6,710 sweaty fans.

    ST. PETERSBURG —The six runs seemed like a ton, just the second time the Rays had scored that many in a game during their numbing two-plus-weeks stretch of offensive impotency, and amazingly, the first time at the Trop in nearly two months.

    Lucas Duda connects for a two-run home run in the sixth, getting the Rays within 7-5. A Logan Morrison home run in the ninth made it 7-6, but Tampa Bay couldn’t complete the comeback.

    The Heater

    SS Adeiny Hechavarria doesn't always look like he's going hard, but he showed impressive reactions Saturday in reversing field to catch a ball that clanked off the catwalk then firing to second to double up Guillermo Heredia on an attempt to tag up.
