Football: Jesuit 25, Middleton 6

TAMPA — A game that featured two teams with the same name, 25 penalties and two safeties ended with an appropriately odd score as the Jesuit Tigers defeated the Middleton Tigers, 25-6.

Jesuit started Aaron Paulsen at quarterback, but after an ineffective first drive ended with a punt, coach James Harrell put in Paulsen's fellow senior, Tommy Eveld. Eveld finished 10-of-16 with a touchdown pass.

Jesuit benefited from poor Middleton special teams on multiple occasions. Two botched punts led to safeties and Jesuit had 202 kickoff return yards, including a 75-yard touchdown by Bryce Walker in the fourth quarter.

Harrell wasn't worried over his team's unconvincing win, and he says they'll be prepared for next week against Robinson.

"We'll be ready," Harrell said. "It'll be an emotional game. … I'm sure our guys will be up for the challenge."
