TALLAHASSEE —There will be plenty of teaching moments for Godby football coach Ronnie Cottrell this coming week.

For while Godby cruised to a 54-0 victory over Suwannee on Friday night at Gene Cox Stadium, scoring eight touchdowns, it was the undisciplined errors that won’t cut it against tougher District 2-5A opponents.

“We do have a lot of work to do,” Cottrell said. “It was a typical homecoming game — we made too many penalties, too many mistakes.”

Godby (5-0, 1-0) committed two encroachment penalties on Suwannee’s opening drive, only aided by a fumble that turned the ball over.

Cougars’ running back Khalid Thomas then carried for 19 and 22 yards to put the ball in the endzone.

Godby aided Suwannee (2-3, 0-1) with defensive penalties that provided first downs or changed field position.
