NEW PORT RICHEY — Anclote's offense proved to be too much for Ridgewood on Friday night as the Sharks earned their first victory, rolling past the Rams 41-6.
Anclote (1-4) opened the scoring with just more than five minutes to go in the first quarter when second-string quarterback Brevet Killett threw a 20-yard touchdown to Ryan Patterson.
The Sharks extended their lead on Ridgewood's ensuing possession. On fourth and 15, Anclote's Alonzo Pettiford returned the punt 35 yards and the Sharks led 13-0.
They would not let up from there. Two minutes into the second quarter, Ridgewood's Bob Peck was intercepted by junior defensive back Luis Perez, setting up first and 10 on Ridgewood's 37-yard line.
Six plays and 63 yards later, running back Willie Barrett scored from a yard out.
Ridgewood got its only score midway through the second quarter when Peck connected with Max Livingstone on a 28-yard pass, making the score 20-6. The Sharks led 34-6 at halftime.
The second half did not go any better for the Rams (1-5). After a four and out to open the third quarter, it took Anclote only two plays to score as John Forgione threw a 49-yard pass to Patterson.
Patterson finished with four catches for 109 yards and two touchdowns.
