Football: Jesuit 16, Middleton 0

TAMPA — With first-and-goal at the 1. Middleton couldn't get it — capped by a fourth-down stop by senior defensive tackle Robby Garcia on quarterback Todd Sims — as Jesuit won 16-0 Friday night.

Trailing 9-0 with 10 minutes left, Middleton recovered a fumble at the Jesuit 1. Middleton failed to gain yards on three downs before Garcia's key play. Three plays later, Jesuit (1-1) scored on a 90-yard touchdown from Leland Saile to Travis Johnson (six receptions, 155 yards)."

"We had a full-out blitz and I just shot through (on fourth down)," Garcia said. "I wasn't touched and the quarterback was right there. It was a big play."

Middleton (0-2) lost its 12th in a row under second-year coach Alonzo Ashwood. "I'm really proud of my guys," he said. "The one thing they need to know is they're always in the game. I know we're headed in the right direction."
