Port St. Joe dominates Liberty County

Griggs fueled the drive with a seven-yard run on fourth-and-6 at the Bulldog 24 and Davis added spark when he weaved 13 yards through the middle of the Liberty County defense on a third-and-eight from the 15.

Lacour’s extra point made it 14-0 and the teams traded punts before heading into the locker room at intermission.

Gannon said after the game that Liberty County was a good comeback team but the hill got much steeper on the second-half kickoff.

Having deferred after winning the coin toss to open the game, the Tiger Sharks got first crack in the third period and in 13 seconds Griggs turned the kickoff into a 86-yard sprint to the end zone, breaking clean through the wedge before heading down the right sideline untouched.

Lacour made it 21-0.

“That return was big,” Gannon said. “We know they can come back, they did last year, and that allowed us to take a bit of wind out of their sails.”

Liberty County pulled to 21-7 on a 9-yard run by William Hayes in the first minute of the fourth period.
