Gulf (2-6, 2-4), a 33-17 winner over Hudson, earned its second victory of the year thanks in part to two defensive touchdowns and a good game from quarterback Chris Klyap.
After Hudson (0-8, 0-6) kicked a field goal on its first drive, Gulf responded with a scoop and score on a fumble recovery by Travis Thomas. Later, Avery Welch recovered a high snap on a punt in the end zone for another Buccaneers score.
Klyap, who has inherited the starting quarterback job in recent weeks, rushed for a 30-plus yard score.
"He's taken over and done a good job," Gulf coach Tom Carter said.
Genaro Ramirez added a score for the Buccaneers.
Gulf's defense held the Cobras to only one offensive touchdown. Hudson's other score came on a kickoff return for a touchdown in the first half.
"They played well," Carter said of his defense.
