Seven Rivers Christian gets an early jump on this year’s slate of high school spring football games, as the Warriors welcome St. Petersburg Canterbury School of Florida today at Warrior Park in Lecanto.
The remainder of the county’s teams play their spring games next week.
ORLANDO — Scott Skiles has stepped down as coach of the Orlando Magic after just one year, the somewhat surprising decision coming about a month after the conclusion of a frustrating regular season.
Skiles was 35-47 this season, his lone year leading the Magic — the team that he spent five seasons with as a player as well. The Magic started 19-13 this season, then after the calendar flipped to 2016 they lost 34 of their final 50 games and missed the playoffs.
TAMPA — The Tampa Bay Lightning proving their deep playoff run of a year ago wasn’t happenstance.
With Ben Bishop, Nikita Kucherov and Victor Hedman leading the way, the Lightning are back in the Eastern Conference final again after defeating the Detroit Red Wings and New York Islanders in the first two rounds.
And, they’ve done it by dispatching of each opponent in five games while playing without injured star Steven Stamkos and defenseman Anton Stralman.
