Chipley runs past Port St. Joe

Published: Thursday, October 3, 2013 at 09:06 AM.

Lacour’s point-after was blocked and the Sharks had closed to 14-9. McCrary had a 42-yard run shortly before intermission, but Port St. Joe held him out of the end zone at the 2 on the final play of the half.

The Tigers Sharks reclaimed the lead on their first possession of the third quarter. A nine-play, 50-yard drive culminated in Paul (98 rushing yards) scoring from the 5 and Lacour’s kick made it 16-14.

The lead was short-lived.

Twenty-five seconds later Stewart ran 70 yards to put the Tigers back on top and McCrary’s second conversion made it 22-16. With 4:18 to play McCrary broke free from a swarm of Port St. Joe defenders at the 50 and went the distance to punctuate a hard-fought triumph.

Port St. Joe hosts Franklin County for Homecoming this week. Kickoff is slated for 7:30 p.m. ET. This is Port St. Joe’s first district game.
