Tiger Sharks beat South Walton 50-49

Star Staff Report

Providing their most impressive offensive game of the season, Port St. Joe Jr./Sr. High School needed every yard and point in winning a wild one 50-49 over South Walton. 

The game was moved to Saturday due to the rainfall from Hurricane Sally. 

The Tiger Sharks (2-1) rolled up 526 yards of offense, 244 in the air and 282 on the ground in the best rushing performance of the season. 

Port St. Joe also forced two turnovers and scored on special teams when Caden Turrell returned a punt 80 yards for a touchdown.

Quarterback Colin Amison was 13 of 23 for 244 yards and four touchdowns and one interception, spreading the ball among five receivers.
