Football: Jesuit 31, Gibbs 0

TAMPA — Jesuit's homecoming was a one-sided affair. The Tigers didn't allow Gibbs to cross midfield and completed their Class 5A, District 8 schedule with a perfect record in a 31-0 victory Friday night in the rain.

It was the eighth consecutive victory and third shutout for Jesuit, which ends its regular season Nov. 10 against Tampa Catholic.

Jesuit allowed only one first down (with 6:21 remaining), limited Gibbs to 7 yards on 27 offensive plays, and had four first-half sacks. The Gladiators finished with minus-39 yards rushing on 12 carries.

Rico Gonzalez rushed for 106 yards on 22 carries and scored the only touchdown Jesuit needed on a 4-yard burst in the first quarter. Quarterback Tommy Eveld completed 8 of 13 passes for 104 yards and two scores, a 33-yarder to Bryce Walker and a 10-yarder to Travis Johnson. The Tigers had three 10-play scoring drives and controlled the clock with 18 first downs.

Kevin Newman added 77 yards rushing and scored once for the Tigers. Bryce Greene kicked a 38-yard field goal.

    RHP Chris Archer's primary problem Sunday, as in much of September, was a lack of slider command. When he can't throw it where he wants, and doesn't have the confidence in the changeup to throw it often, he can't win with just his fastball.

    LOUDON, N.H. — Kyle Busch saw little but billowing white smoke that engulfed the track and blinded enough drivers that it caused a tremendous wreck that notably altered the race running order.

    Kyle Busch celebrates with a burnout after his third victory of the season that earns a berth in the second round of NASCAR’s playoffs. He also has some fun with Loudon the Lobster.
