Bay stifles Port St. Joe

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

The Tornadoes failed to move and faced a third-and-11 at their 23. A middle screen from the younger Longerbeam to Markeis Goodman appeared to break wide open for the touchdown, but the play was called back for an illegal block.

Bay also was hit with an unsportsmanlike conduct penalty for protesting the call.

From the 4, Longerbeam found Michael Layfield in the deep middle of the field. Layfield turned outside past his defender and was gone for a 96-yard touchdown. The extra point kick was off the mark again.

“We had a couple of series where we probably needed to score because we weren’t going to get many chances against them,” Gannon said. “We played hard for three-and-a-half quarters and we just kind of died a little at the end.

“But we had guys playing offense, defense, special teams, who didn’t come off the field. I thought we played really hard.”
