Port St. Joe Shuts Out Wewa, New Coaches Debut for Spring Game

By  | 

Port St. Joe, FL---As Wewahitchka and Port St. Joe both put a wrap on their spring football programs Friday night, they each looked to cap practice for this fall's season on the right note with a win in their spring game.

The exhibition also marked the first game action for each school's new coach. Loren Tillman took to the sidelines for the first time with the Wewa Gators after coming south from Bozeman, while St. Joe was led by by John Palmer, who's in his second stint with the Sharks after bringing the school their 2005 State title.

In the highlights attached above, PSJ's Jasmin Thomas running up the near sideline, gets 28 yards and moves into Gator territory.

A few plays later Jarkeice Davis shakes through the defense, picks up 27 yards, and St. Joe is in the end zone, PAT makes it 7-0.

Later in the first, T.J. Williams rolls out to his right, the lefty fires and connects with Jak Riley with no Gator in sight, 62 yards later, it's 14-0 Tiger Sharks.

Wewa trying to answer back, QB Rashard Ranie, loses the handle, but not his composure. Picks it up, starts running, finds a hole, and won't stop. It takes a school of Sharks to take him down after a 28 yard gain. Gators would turn it over on downs though.

Second quarter, home team puts up 7 more. Williams on the keeper, good blocking good running, 13 yard TD, making it 21-0 heading into the half.

Sharks go on to win this spring game 27-0, adding six more on a John Simpson TD run, as Coach Palmer comes out victorious in his return.
