PORT ST. JOE – Port St. Joe stumbled to begin each half Friday night but the Tiger Sharks found their stride each time and ran through South Walton into the Region 2-1A title game.

Dewayne Griggs rushed for 241 yards and Port St. Joe made momentum-shifting defensive plays for a 45-21 victory over South Walton.

The Tiger Sharks (8-3) renew a familiar rivalry next Friday when they travel to Blountstown to take on the top-ranked Tigers for the region title.

The Seahawks bow out of the playoffs at 7-4.

A search for a turning point would focus on the final minutes of the opening period.

Leading 7-0 the Seahawks received a short field and drove to a first-and-goal at the Port St. Joe 8.

But on four plays, the final two inside the 1, South Walton could not punch it in and the Tiger Sharks took over.
