Port St. Joe shuts out Bozeman

PORT ST. JOE -- Maybe it is a tired cliché, but focusing on a game at a time has been Port St. Joe’s mantra all fall.

The Tiger Sharks demonstrated that laser attention to the task at hand with a 35-0 whitewash of Bozeman Friday night at Shark Field.

Showing little residual effects from a physically-bruising shutout loss at home to Bay High last week, the Tiger Sharks (2-1) rushed for 300 yards and held the Bucks (0-3) to 140 total yards and nine first downs in a commanding performance.

Much of the DNA of Port St. Joe was on display.

Eight running backs touched the ball as Port St. Joe melted the clock and moved the chains. The Tiger Sharks sacked Bozeman quarterback Bubba Thompson five times and made life miserable in the pocket.

They also turned key defensive plays into points and thwarted the only Buck possessions that threatened their goal line.

To add icing, Port St. Joe had just two penalties and won special teams, with Drew Lacour hitting all five of his extra-point kicks and the Tiger Sharks twice converting returns into offensive points.
