Football: Blake 41, Middleton 19

TAMPA — Blake (2-4) scored 22 points in the third quarter to break open a tie game and defeat Middleton (0-6) 41-19 Thursday in a Class 5A-8 matchup.

Blake junior quarterback Zain Gilmore threw two touchdown passes and ran for another as the Yellow Jackets kept the Tigers winless. Gilmore hit Deandre James for a 49-yard score and Earvin Williams for a 30-yard score in the first quarter.

Middleton tied it at 13 by halftime behind Richard Benjamin's 70-yard touchdown run.

But James added a 4-yard touch down run in the third quarter, then Gilmore, who was 14-for-22 for 246 passing yards, scored on a 9-yard keeper and linebacker Javon Kitchen recovered a fumble in the end zone. The Yellow Jackets had 390 yards of offense.
