Sneads Pirates eliminates Gators from postseason

For most of the first half last Friday the host Wewahitchka Gators played back-and-forth with Sneads.

But too many givebacks by the Gators proved their undoing.

Turnovers, including a key interception and two fumbles, proved decisive as the Pirates pounded Wewahitchka 53-14, officially eliminating the Gators (2-6 overall, 0-3 in District 4-1A) from playoff contention.

The Gators host Vernon at 7 p.m. CT this Friday, have a bye week and finish the season on the road against West Gadsden.

Sneads scored on a long run to finish the opening drive of the game, but the Gators answered, driving the length of the field to set up junior quarterback Rashard Ranie’s 1-yard touchdown run.

A failed extra point left the Gators behind 7-6.

Sneads responded with another long drive punctuated by a rushing touchdown to take a 14-6 before things unraveled for Wewahitchka.
