Chipley runs past Port St. Joe in second half

Published: Thursday, February 20, 2014 at 11:02 AM.

Tigers coach Joel Orlando slowed the pace in the third quarter, and Forrest and Sharpe combined for nine of Chipley’s 11 points to extend the margin to 46-33 going into the final quarter. Chipley unleashed a 17-2 run in the fourth quarter to put the game away.

Sharpe finished with 16 points for the Tigers. He is the lone holdout from the Chipley team that won a state title two years ago.

:”I can’t really make a comparison,” Sharpe said of the two teams. “Both teams work hard. It’s different teams with different players, but (the effort) is basically the same thing.”

Justin Campbell added 10 points off the bench for Chipley, taking advantage of gaps in the Tiger Sharks’ defense as PSJ focused on impeding Forrest and Sharpe.

TJ Williams and JD Davis scored nine and eight points, respectively, for PSJ.

PORT ST. JOE (41) — Marq. Johnson 5, Williams 9, Odom 6, Davis 8, Marc. Johnson 3, Clemons 6, Quinn 2, Batson 2.

CHIPLEY (66) — Sims 3, Forrest 31, Sharpe 16, Lee 4, Campbell 10, Hall 2.
