A-9 volleyball: Lakeside, Canterbury reach final

LAND O'LAKES — The one-hour trip from Pinellas County is long and boring.

None of the girls from Lakeside Christian or Canterbury seemed to mind having to come back once more after winning semifinal matches Tuesday. Both made the region tournament and met Thursday for the title and homecourt advantage to begin the playoffs.

A young Lakeside team upset host Academy at the Lakes 3-2. Canterbury cruised over Citrus Park 3-0.

"This is (Academy's) home gym," Lakeside coach Becky McCarthy said. "We had already lost twice to them during the regular season. Finally, they believed in themselves and now we're going to regionals and that's all we care about."

The Lions squandered Game 1 25-23 after leading 12-2 at one point. But Lakeside won the next two 25-15 and 25-23, lost Game 4 25-20 then prevailed 15-10 in the fifth.

Lakeside got 20 kills from sophomore Hannah Ray,.

Canterbury won 25-16, 25-11, 25-7 as Megan Burgess had 12 aces and 10 kills.

  1. Marc Topkin's takeaways from Saturday's Rays-Orioles game

    The Heater

    RHP Jake Odorizzi admitted he probably should have gone on the DL sooner than late July for the back stiffness that was keeping him from throwing the ball where he wanted to. He has since found an impressive groove, with another strong outing Saturday.

  2. Matt Baker's takeaways from Florida State-N.C. State

    College

    RB Cam Akers still looks like a former high school quarterback at times. His first two touches (30 yards) were special, but the freshman juked instead of powering ahead on his third (an unsuccessful third-and-1 rush). That's why the Seminoles are easing him in, as they did with Dalvin Cook three years ago.

    Running back Cam Akers carries for a first down during the third quarter as FSU eases the freshman into the college game.
  3. An attempt to project what Rays will look like in 2018

    The Heater

    BALTIMORE — We know what the Rays look like this year: a team that had enough talent but too many flaws, in construction and performance, and in the next few days will be officially eliminated from a wild-card race it had a chance to win but let slip away.

    Adeiny Hechavarria, high-fiving Lucas Duda, seems likely to be brought back.
  4. Lightning confused by NHL's slashing crackdown

    Lightning Strikes

    TAMPA — D Victor Hedman said the joke in the Lightning locker room before Friday's exhibition game was that the over/under on slashing penalties would be six.

    "It was the over again," Hedman quipped.

    Wing Ryan Callahan, left,  pursues the Predators’ Colton Sissons, being careful how he uses his stick given the crackdown on slashing in the preseason. “It’s hard to defend when you’re so used to doing something for so long and now it’s a penalty,” Callahan says.
  5. Trump fallout: Bucs' DeSean Jackson to make 'statement' Sunday

    Bucs

    Bucs receiver DeSean Jackson said Saturday that he will make a "statement" before today's game against the Vikings in response to President Donald Trump's comment that owners should "fire" players who kneel in protest during the national anthem.

    Tampa Bay Buccaneers wide receiver DeSean Jackson (11) makes a catch during the first half of an NFL game between the Chicago Bears and Tampa Bay Buccaneers at Raymond James Stadium in Tampa, Fla., on Sunday, Sept. 17, 2017.
