HOLIDAY — A once-promising season for Wesley Chapel is slowly slipping away.

The Wildcats were shut out 13-0 by Anclote on Friday as the Sharks won for the third time in four games after an 0-4 start.

Anclote (3-5) celebrated homecoming with an impressive game from its defense. Meanwhile, the offense was able to translate turnovers into all the scoring the Sharks would need.

After a slow start the most surprising thing might have been the attitudes of the Wildcat players. Coach Ben Alford characterized the effort as “lackadaisical.”

“I’ve never been a part of something like this,” Alford said. “There was too much hanging of heads in the middle of the game.”

Wesley Chapel (4-4) had won its previous two games convincingly, but Alford was not satisfied with what he has seen from his program this week.

“We’re just not executing,” he said. “We’ve been preaching all the time about being focused, but when you see a game like this it just baffles me.”
