Football: Fivay 41, Gulf 14

Fivay remained perfect in Class 5A, District 6 thanks to a balanced offensive attack Friday night.

Quarterback Tyler Degen threw for more than 100 yards and a touchdown, and Fivay (5-1, 4-0) rushed for a handful of scores while containing Gulf's offense in a 41-14 victory.

"We just never really let them get much started," coach Chris Taylor said.

Degen connected with tight end Kevin Faulkner on a 30-yard score. Receiver James Bullock scored on a 75-yard punt return, while Kyrie Rodriguez, Colin Hahn and Bryan Poinsette all rushed for touchdowns.

Taylor said his linemen played well against Gulf's big bodies, including college prospect Jeff Kruse.

"We were able to control the line of scrimmage, so that was good for us," Taylor said.

Fivay remains in a three-way tie with Pasco and Zephyrhills for first place in the district heading into the Falcons' showdown with the Pirates next week.

"It's going to be a great learning experience for our program," Taylor said.

Gulf (1-5, 1-3) hosts Anclote next week.
