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.
