Bay stifles Port St. Joe

Published: Saturday, September 7, 2013 at 01:12 AM.

An 8-yard punt by Griggs — who would leave the game in the third quarter with a concussion after a violent collision while on defense — just past the midpoint in the second quarter gave Bay its first scoring opportunity.

The Tornadoes took over at the Tiger Shark 23 and Webb picked up the yardage in three carries, scoring from the 4. The extra point by Blake Whitmire made it 7-0.

At halftime, the teams had combined for just 104 yards.

The theme continued through the first nine minutes of the second half before Bay took over at its 27.

The Tornadoes, with Port St. Joe appearing to tire slightly, marched 73 yards in 14 plays, consuming 7:12 of the clock.

Webb slipped outside and through two tacklers on a 15-yard jaunt to score; the extra point was off and it was 13-0.

Port St. Joe was three-and-out before a wild series of plays led to Bay’s final touchdown.
