Football: Gulf 20, Wesley Chapel 6

NEW PORT RICHEY — Despite a sloppy start Gulf held off Wesley Chapel 20-6 Friday night in Ken Hollar's last game as Buccaneers coach.

The Wildcats (3-6, 1-5) scored first on a 33-yard field goal by Cody Hodgins, set up by a Buccaneers fumble. In the first half the teams combined for five fumbles.

Just before halftime Gulf's Tyshawn Peters completed a 63-yard pass to Nikola Visic for a 7-3 lead.

Gulf (5-4, 2-4) kept the momentum in the second half as Peters threw a screen to running back Kris Aratchiysky, who took it 53 yards for a 14-3 lead.

Wesley Chapel tried to get its offense going and finally Devon Henry broke free for a 51-yard run. The Wildcats had to settle for another field from Hodgins, this one from 38 yards out, to cut the lead to 14-6.

Wesley Chapel was poised to get the ball back after forcing the Buccaneers to punt, but Patrick Jackson fumbled the punt and Gulf recovered.

The Buccaneers punched it in for a touchdown a few plays later to seal the victory.
