Port St. Joe swamps Wewa

Published: Saturday, August 31, 2013 at 01:33 AM.

The Gators did themselves no favors by turning the ball over on fumbles five times.

“I thought we played real hard,” Port St. Joe coach Chuck Gannon said. “I thought they would try to hammer us with Ranie and Hill, but I thought we did a real good job of swarming to the ball.

“We knew we were going to be tested. We had a bit of gut-check this afternoon. But I thought that was more the team we thought we had. This was 360 degrees from last week in the kickoff classic.”

The game got away from the Gators in the second quarter as Port St. Joe demonstrated its quick-strike capabilities.

The teams traded touchdowns early, Drew Lacour scoring for Port St. Joe on a quarterback sneak and the Gators answering when Ranie found Tad Gaskin behind the defense on a 39-yard crossing route.

Three plays later, Thacker went untouched on a trap play for a 44-yard touchdown.

The Tiger Sharks held Wewahitchka to three-and-out and on the first play of the ensuing series Griggs lined up wide left and caught a perfect strike from Ethan Sander in stride, deked two defenders and completed a 54-yard scoring play.
