Football: Countryside 66, Wiregrass Ranch 6

CLEARWATER — Countryside had a dominating performance in its homecoming matchup, breaking the school record for most points scored in a game in a 66-6 victory over Wiregrass Ranch.

Four turnovers by the Bulls led to easy scores. The Cougars held the Bulls (0-6) to one first down and 138 total yards.

"We've got to play to our expectations, and I felt that we did that," Cougars coach Jared Davis said. "It's good to be able to see everybody play and everybody play at a high level."

Senior Diomi Roberts led the way with three rushing touchdowns. He added a fourth on special teams when he returned a blocked punt 15 yards. Roberts finished with 11 carries for 54 yards.

Gray Crow completed 11 of 17 passes for 108 yards with a touchdown and interception. With the score 49-0 at halftime, Countryside (7-0) had its younger players in for much of the second half.
