Football: Gibbs 48, Dunedin 6

DUNEDIN — Tyron Lansom scored three times and Brevet Killett accounted for three touchdowns — two rushing, one passing — as Gibbs routed Dunedin 48-6 on Friday night.

The Gladiators dominated from start to finish, scoring in the first quarter on a 8-yard touchdown run by Lansom. Killett added a 5-yard touchdown run on the following possession for a 14-0 lead.

In the second quarter, Killett hit Jaquez President with a 12-yard touchdown pass, and Lansom capped Gibbs' big first half with a 3-yard touchdown run for a 28-0 lead.

Lansom led the Gladiators with 89 yards on 14 carries, his third score coming on a 14-yard run in the third quarter to put Gibbs up 42-0.

Killett had a productive game both as a passer and a rusher throwing for 141 yards and rushing for 19 yards and the two scores.

The Gladiators defense held the Falcons to just 115 yards of total offense, 51 of those coming on Dunedin's lone scoring drive. Jordan Williams set up the Falcons with the ball at midfield with his a 30-yard kick return. Tyler Palermiti came in off the bench and gave the Falcons a spark, completing 4 of 6 passes on the drive for 45 yards. Adarius Sims eventually ran in for a 2-yard touchdown.

Gibbs concludes its season next week at Palm Harbor with a chance to finish .500.
