The only thing Florida High didn’t do in their 54-0 win over P.K. Yonge on Friday night was make every extra point.
The Seminoles (3-2) scored eight touchdowns in their shutout against the Blue Wave, repeatedly busting through their opponents’ defense.
Their offense plowed up and down the Blue Wave’s field for 403 yards.
Their defense, which was just as noteworthy, limited P.K. Yonge to a mere 81 yards of total offense.
“I don’t know about you, but I don’t like this feeling one bit,” said P.K. coach Rob Cox to his team after watching them drop to 0-5. “It’s 54-0. What’s there to say?”
The Blue Wave’s rough evening started about three minutes into the game when Seminoles running back Khari Lewis weaved through the Blue Wave’s defensive line and evaded tackle after tackle on his way to his first touchdown.
The Seminoles would score two more touchdowns in the first quarter: one on a pass to wide receiver Matt Donaldson and another on a pounding rush from Lewis.
By the end of the first half, the Seminoles had solidified their lead to 40-0.
Over the next two quarters, Florida High went on to score two more touchdowns, bumping the final score to 54-0.
Seminoles quarterback Darius Harvey threw for three touchdown and Lewis rushed for 148 yards and had three scores.
“It’s tough,” Cox said. “Three years from now, this will be a memory. Hopefully we learn something from this about competing.”
