Port St. Joe routs Franklin County

Published: Friday, October 4, 2013 at 10:37 PM.

The Tiger Sharks controlled every facet of the game and inserted the junior varsity en masse before the first half ended 35-0.

Port St. Joe chewed up 191 total yards in the first half – 293 for the game – while limiting the Seahawks to 46. Franklin County only first down against the Tiger Shark varsity came courtesy of a roughing the passer penalty.

The Tiger Sharks also transformed a long punt return and a blocked punt into points and allowed Franklin County to score only on the final play of the game, the second half played while the clock ran continuously.

“We will keep working and we’ll get better,” said Franklin County coach Aaron York. “I saw improvement tonight.

“We are a young team and we just need to keep working to get better every week which we have since the season started.”

The Tiger Sharks wasted little time getting on the scoreboard.

Port St. Joe stopped the Seahawks on downs on the opening drive, took over at the Franklin County 34 after a punt and Dwayne Griggs did the rest in two carries, the touchdown coming from the 7.
