Sharks take bite out of Gators

“We did some personnel changes and moved some people into different positions and that kind of helped us out a little in the second half. Port St. Joe is a strong team. They are very well coached and very well disciplined.”

In reality, the Sharks called off the attack in the first game as the Port St. Joe coaches played the backups a large part of the second half.

“That makes it tough because you are playing a doubleheader and you are trying to keep guys as fresh as you can,” Kerrell said of the short bench. “You cringe every time a kid goes down with a possible injury. When you have one kid sitting on the bench it’s tough.”

The Gators finally found the net midway through the second half when Mason Lowery scored on an assist by Kodi Moen.

The match’s final two goals belonged to Tyler Colonna; Devin Ribbons picked up an assist on one of the goals.

Kerrell was happy to see Colonna finally find the back of the net for a score.

“Tyler has kind of had a monkey on his back all year long,” he said. It’s either glanced off his foot wrong or he hit the side post.
