The Port St. Joe Jr./Sr. High School football team hoped to be in this position as the season played out.

The Tiger Sharks wanted to arrive at this week 1-0 in District 1-1A with back-to-back home games against West Gadsden and Liberty County in the next two Fridays.

Mission accomplished.

Coming off a 21-12 road win against Tallahassee FAMU last Thursday, raising their record to 5-2 overall, the Tiger Sharks have destiny in their hands as they face the Panthers of West Gadsden 7:30 p.m. ET on Friday at Shark Field.

Win and Port St. Joe is assured of a playoff spot in the four-team district, which also includes a winless Franklin County.

Lose and the Tiger Sharks would have to beat visiting Liberty County next week to force a three-way tie for the district title and the two district playoff spots.

Beat West Gadsden and Liberty County and the district title belongs to Port St. Joe.
