Vernon dominates Wewahitchka

Published: Thursday, October 31, 2013 at 09:04 AM.

Whether being bounced from the playoffs or the looming end of a long season, the Gators of Wewahitchka came out flat last Friday and were routed 55-0 by Vernon in the Gators’ last home game.

The Gators could get little going offensively after the opening drive of the game ended on downs at the Vernon 30 and Vernon exploded for 27 second-quarter points to remove any doubt on outcome.

The start of the game symbolized the Gators’ woes the rest of the game.

Taking the opening kickoff they marched inside Vernon territory only to turn the ball over on downs. Two plays later a Vernon back went 63 yards for a touchdown.

Wewahitchka fumbled the ensuing kickoff and Vernon recovered, quickly converting the turnover into points.

Junior quarterback Rashard Ranie rushed four times for two yards and was 4 of 15 passing for 48 yards with one interception.

Jarvar Hill rushed 12 times for 68 yards and Jonathan Palmer had 11 yards on two carries.
