Blountstown edges Port St. Joe

Published: Thursday, September 27, 2012 at 02:02 PM.

The Tiger Sharks seemed to grab momentum when Jarkeice Davis (a game-high 80 rushing yards) recovered an onside kick to start the second half.

But Port St. Joe turned it over on downs at the Tiger 38, one of four times the Tiger Sharks were in Blountstown territory in the second half, the deepest penetration the 28, without coming away with points.

On its second possession of the half, the Tigers struck for the biggest play of the game when quarterback Hunter Jordan found Ryan Hathcox with inside position on a 32-yard post pattern for a touchdown, the extra point kick putting the Tigers ahead to stay.

They added an insurance touchdown early in the fourth quarter when on a fourth-and-goal from the 8, Hunter Jordan scrambled out trouble in the pocket and finessed his way just inside the left corner of the end zone.

The extra point made it 14-6 with 6:24 to play.

Blountstown is off next week while Port St. Joe hosts Holmes County.
