Port St. Joe dominates Liberty County

Published: Friday, November 1, 2013 at 10:32 PM.

With the district title within grasp the past two weeks, the Tiger Sharks (7-2 overall, 3-0 in district play) outscored West Gadsden and Liberty County 41-10.

“They just outplayed us,” said Liberty County coach Grant Grantham. “They were the better team. We missed some things tonight, but we also did not block well. I don’t know what we could have done differently, they just outplayed us.”

The Tiger Sharks struck on their first drive taking advantage of a 4-yard punt that gave them the ball at the Bulldog 41.

Port St. Joe drove to a 6-yard touchdown run by Griggs in seven plays, punctuated by a 35-bolt from Jarkeice Davis (a game-high 75 yards rushing) on third-and-16 from the 45.

Drew Lacour added the extra point for a 7-0 lead.

Liberty County marched into Tiger Shark territory on its next drive, but sputtered behind a holding call and Port St. Joe took over at its 34 after stopping the Bulldogs on downs.

Consuming 15 plays and more than 6:30 of the clock the Tiger Sharks marched to the 1 before Griggs scored on a jet sweep, barely sneaking inside the pylon.
