Port St. Joe shuts out Bozeman

Aaron Paul, also praised by Gannon, spearheaded the Tiger Sharks assuming complete control as the third quarter opened.

Paul picked up a rolling second-half kickoff and returned it 20 yards to the Bozeman 44, then danced 19 yards around left end, changing directions twice, to complete a seven-play scoring drive that took more than 4:00 off the clock.

Bozeman, behind the rushing of Justin Parson, who entered the game in the third quarter and rushed for a team-high 50 yards, marched to the Tiger Shark 9 in the final minutes of the third quarter. Thompson, however, was again sacked, twice, and the Bucks turned the ball over on downs.

John Simpson, who added 28 yards rushing on the final drive, scored from the 6 to provide Port St. Joe its final touchdown.

“We’ve had tough opening games and it doesn’t get any easier with Jefferson County and Chipley coming up” on the road, Gannon said. “We have said from the beginning that we have to take one game at a time, we have to stay healthy and get to the district games.”
