Wewahitchka managed just seven offensive plays from scrimmage last Friday night as the Gators hosted Franklin County.

On the flip side, those seven plays helped produce a 26-0 halftime lead.

The Gators (1-4) rushed for over 250 yards and dominated the winless Seahawks in a 40-14 contest decided by halftime.

Wewahitchka had the ball for only seven offensive plays in the opening half, but Jonathan Palmer rushed 45 yards in the first quarter to stake the Gators to an early lead.

The lead bulged in the second period as Javar Hill scored on a runs of 15 and 25 yards and Willie Hill put the icing on an impressive first half by scooping up a fumble at the Seahawks 35 and running in for the touchdown.

Rashard Ranie continued the onslaught when he dashed 54 yards for a third-quarter touchdown and Shannon Jones, getting some varsity playing time, covered 16 yards on the ground for the Gators’ final score.
