Tiger Sharks earn blowout win on the road

The Tiger Sharks earned a blowout win against Pike Liberal Arts on the road Sept. 15, allowing only one touchdown by the Patriots to their six.

Port St. Joe scored a total of six touchdowns in the game, bringing the final score to 42-7.

Corbin Butts scored the game’s first touchdown, rushing the ball 10 yards into the end zone with a minute left in the first quarter. 

The Tiger Sharks scored three touchdowns in the second quarter, bringing the score of the game to 28-0 at half time.

In the second half, there were two additional touchdowns by the Tiger Sharks and one by the Patriots.

Butts scored three of the game’s touchdowns and Chance Gainer, Devin Cuttino and Colton Johnson each scored one. Estevan Angel, Port St. Joe’s kicker, successfully scored all available points after touchdown.

Port St. Joe ended the game with a total of 304 rushing yards and 174 receiving yards.

“All around, we played really well,” said Coach Tanner Jones. “I was happy with the kids. They went in and handled business, and then our younger guys got to go in, and offensively they moved the ball well, and defensively they were able to continue what the starters had done.”

The Tiger Sharks next play on Friday, Sept. 22 against the Rutherford Rams (0-4) in Panama City at 8 p.m. EDT.

“They’re an 0-4 team that has played a really tough schedule,” Jones said. “… They’ve played a really tough schedule, but they are very capable of winning games… You can’t look at the 0-4 record and think they’re not very good, because you’ll go there and get your tail beat if that’s your mentality.”

“But we’re coming off three really good practices, and I think the boys are ready to take on the challenge.”
