Football: Freedom 41, Wiregrass Ranch 0

WESLEY CHAPEL — Freedom ended its season in posi­tive fashion by burying winless Wiregrass Ranch 41-0 on Friday.

The game got off to a sluggish start with a scoreless first quarter. But the Patriots (3-7) broke the deadlock in the second and didn't look back while alternating juniors Taylor King and D.J. Grant at quarterback.

"That was big for those guys because it gives them a sense of competition for next season," Freedom coach Tom Donohoe said. "The important thing is that we sent our seniors off on a high note; particularly on defense, where we have quite a few seniors.

"We finished with a better record than last year (2-8), and we'll look to build on that next season."

The Patriots scored their first touchdown on a 70-yard pass from Grant to Johnny Rodicio. They would immediately follow it up with another two touchdowns, a 30-yard interception return by senior Nate Godwin and 1-yard run by Anthony Hendry after recovering a fumbled kickoff.

Grant added another score to his total as both he and King finished with two touchdown passes.

The Bulls (0-9) were held to 1 rushing yard and 87 overall.
