PORT ST. JOE – Rocky Bayou Christian ran onto rocky ground Friday night at Shark Field.

The host Class 1A Tiger Sharks dominated every phase of the game en route to their third-straight victory, a 42-10 beat down of the independent Knights (2-5).

Port St. Joe (4-2) held Rocky Bayou to just 109 total yards while 12 different Tiger Sharks racked up just over 300 yards of total offense for the Tiger Sharks, who took control of the game during a four-minute period when they had the scoreboard spinning like a pinball game.

“We have played some really physical teams the first part of the season, and give Rocky Bayou credit, they played hard and did a good job, but it was nice to have a game where we had a chance to play a lot of kids and some of the young players got to see action,” said Port St. Joe coach Chuck Gannon.

“We have had a really good week of practice. This is a great group to coach. They work hard and understand what we have to do to be successful. We are improving every week, which is what you want.”

The entire first half was played in the Rocky Bayou end of the field and Port St. Joe took full advantage of it from its opening possession.

A short punt allowed the Tiger Sharks to begin on offense at the Knight 39 and just six plays later Dusty Richter (59 rushing yards) picked up a dropped lateral wide right and sprinted down the sideline to score from the Rocky Bayou 18.
