BAKER — An experienced Port St. Joe boys soccer team flexed its muscle against Baker on Saturday in doubleheader action.

The Sharks beat the Gators 6-3 in the first game and won the nightcap 8-0, dropping Baker to 0-9 on the season.

The early game’s opening moments belonged to the Sharks as Port St. Joe seemed to score at will, delivering five goals before the mandatory water break midway through the first half.

Up 5-0, the Sharks seemed to smell blood in the water and were poised for the kill that never came.

Yes, Port St. Joe added another goal late in the first half to go up 6-0, but the second half belonged to the Gators.

“They jumped on us kind of quick,” Baker coach James Kerrell said. “I’m not sure if we were still asleep or just not ready. I don’t know what happened out there early.
