LibertyCountyedges PSJ for 4-1A championship

Published: Friday, November 9, 2012 at 03:32 PM.

The Tiger Sharks’ rushing tandem of Jarkice Davis and Dusty Richter overpowered the Liberty County defense. Davis finished with 191 rushing yards on 23 carries, and Richter complemented that effort with 111 yards on 10 rushes.

Richter’s sprint off the right side of the line resulted in a 66-yard gain and set up Ramello Zaccarro’s 1-yard touchdown run on the next play to give PSJ a 7-0 lead less than a minute into the second half.

After PSJ’s defense forced a punt with its third of five sacks against Watson, the Tiger Sharks boosted their lead to 13-0 with Davis’ 34-yard touchdown run with just over seven minutes left in the third quarter.

The teams then traded a trio of turnovers on three straight plays, the last of which was Zaccarro’s interception of Watson at the Tiger Sharks’ 10. On the second play of the next possession, Davis tip-toed along the sideline in front of the Liberty County bench en route to an 87-yard touchdown run and a 19-0 advantage.

The Tiger Sharks’ defensive front pestered Watson throughout the game and forced him into a 9-for-21 passing performance with 141 yards and an interception. Bulldog receiver Michael Robinson hauled down five catches for 78 yards, and he also added a pair of interceptions on defense.

Marlowe, who played as hard as anyone on the Bulldogs’ senior night, nearly reached the 100-yard plateau running the ball and settled with 93 yards on 15 carries.
