Football: Fivay 42, Gulf 7

HUDSON — Fivay came out firing in the first half against winless district foe Gulf to prevail 42-7 Friday night.

Gulf's first two possessions resulted in two four and outs, and the Falcons (5-1, 4-0) capitalized both times. Running back Davion Sutton accounted for four of the Falcons' five first-half touchdowns.

Sutton took scores in from 10, 2, 4 and a highlight run of 40 yards, dodging Buccaneers (0-6, 0-3) everywhere with 1:36 left in the half to make the score 35-0.

Fivay quarterback Tyler Degen added a score when he threw a 61-yard pass to Kevin Faulkner down the sideline. Sutton rushed the ball 12 times in the first half for 124 yards.

Fivay's defense shut down the Bucs, allowing only 35 yards of total offense in the half, forcing five punts along the way.

To start the second half, Bryan Poinsette took the kickoff back 94 yards right up the middle, extending the lead to 42. Gulf finally got on the board as the third quarter came to an end when Chris Klyap connected with Brennan Smiley from 36 yards out.
