Port St. Joe pummels Rocky Bayou

Published: Friday, October 12, 2012 at 10:31 PM.

The teams traded possession until with 2:56 left in the period, a low snap went past Rocky Bayou quarterback Tyler Paskell and Jarkeice Davis recovered the ball at the 6. Davis barreled up the middle for those yards on the next play, Justin Hites’ kick failed and it was 13-0.

On the Knights’ next play from scrimmage, Levi Derry fumbled and Dallas Burke recovered at the 17 for Port St. Joe. Natron Lee (a game-high 62 rushing yards) covered that on the following play and Hites made it 20-0.

Three plays later, a Rocky Bayou fumble on the snap exchange resulted in Port St. Joe taking over at the Knight 21. Love scored from the 12 three plays later and Hites made it 27-0.

On the ensuing possession, the Knights went nowhere from their 20 and another short punt followed.

On the following play, Port St. Joe’s Jak Riley found open space down the left sideline on a pitch play for a 34-yard touchdown, completing a span of four minutes during which the Tiger Sharks scored four touchdowns while executing just six offensive plays from scrimmage.

Drew Kilpatrick got Rocky Bayou on the board with a 22-yard field goal with 5:31 left in the half, finishing a drive that saw the Knights earn their first down and cross midfield for the first time.

But minutes later, Davis tackled Paskell in the end zone after yet another low snap for a safety and the halftime score was 36-3.
