Port St. Joe routs Franklin County

The host Tiger Sharks ensured Friday that the Franklin County Seahawks’ two-week swing through Gulf County was a bumpy one.

One week after losing at Wewahitchka the Seahawks ran into a buzz saw at Shark Field, dominated in every phase in a 49-6 loss.

The win improves Port St. Joe, which was celebrating Homecoming, to 4-2 overall and 1-0 in District 1-1A entering a bye week.

The Tiger Sharks will face Tallahassee FAMU in two weeks then host consecutive district tilts against West Gadsden and Liberty County that will likely determine playoff positions.

The Seahawks dipped to 0-6, 0-1.

“We got to play everybody, get a lot of younger guys some action which is a nice thing,” said Port St. Joe coach Chuck Gannon. “It may just be me, but I think a lot of coaches see the distractions of Homecoming as a necessary thing they would like to see get over.

“But I think our kids were focused, though not as much as I would like them to be. It was a good ending to a nice Homecoming week.”
