Tiger Sharks open postseason at home Friday vs. Aucilla

In the wake of a 27-6 win at home by Aucilla Christian over No. 6-seed Wewahitchka in the opening round of the Class 1 Rural-Region 2 high school football playoffs, the stage is set for a regional semi-final showdown this Friday night in Port St. Joe.

Taking to the road after last week’s victory, the No. 3-seed Aucilla Christian Warriors (9-1) will travel to the confines of Shark Field to square off against the No. 2-seed Tiger Sharks (6-4) in a postseason gridiron battle at 7:30 p.m.

The winner of the Port St. Joe-Aucilla Christian contest will face the victor of this week’s clash between the top-seeded Blountstown Tigers (6-3) and the No. 4-seed Sneads Pirates (6-4) in the Class 1 Rural-Region 2 championship on Nov. 24 at 7:30 p.m.

Utilizing a balanced offensive attack to tally 231 total yards in last week’s win, Aucilla equally split their yardage between their running and passing games.

Freshman quarterback Landon LaRosa led the team with 60 yards and one touchdown on 14 carries, while also throwing a touchdown to senior Eli Conrad on a 6-of-16 passing night.

Senior running back Tucker Wiles scored twice, racking up 43 yards on 10 carries.
