Blountstown edges Port St. Joe

“It’s a win but we sure had to earn it,” Jordan said. “They showed some things we had never seen on film and we were confused early in the game. In the end, we didn’t have many offensive yards but we made enough big plays to make the difference.

“You have to give credit to Port St. Joe. No matter how much you tell the kids how physical a Blountstown-Port St. Joe game is, they have to play it to understand.”

The Tiger Sharks, who actually outgained Blountstown by 5 yards, came up with the first key play of the game, on special teams.

Dusty Richter barreled in from the right side on a fourth-down punt and managed, with help from the up blocker who Richter pushed through on his way to the punter, to block the punt.

Ramello Zaccarro scooped up the ball at the Tiger 27 and was untouched on his way to the end zone. A pass was incomplete on the extra point try and it was 6-0.

The Tigers entered Port St. Joe territory just twice in the first half, once courtesy a roughing the kicker penalty, and could get no closer than the Tiger Shark 37.

Port St. Joe also had two forays into enemy territory, but one ended on downs and another on a fumbled snap.
