WESLEY CHAPEL — Wesley Chapel could not overcome 76 penalty yards and two missed field goals in a 10-7 loss to Anclote on Friday. Cody Hodgins missed a 43-yard field goal at the end of the first half and a 41-yard attempt with less than two minutes remaining in the fourth quarter.
"He's the best kicker in Pasco County," Wildcats coach Ben Alford said. "If we would have been back there 50 yards I would have taken a shot."
Wesley Chapel (3-6) gained 156 yards on the ground, including a botched snap on the last drive that resulted in a loss of 30. Dimon Bagwell rushed for 102 yards on 22 attempts and Davon Henry gained 106 yards on 21 rushes.
Anclote (2-7) got a 3-yard rushing touchdown from Travis Hendrix and a 33-yard field goal from kicker CJ Peppe. Quarterback John Forgione threw two interceptions, but his defense held strong.
