Football: Mitchell 51, Gulf 0

NEW PORT RICHEY — The Gulf Buccaneers couldn't fence in the Mitchell Mustangs on Friday night, falling 51-0.

Scoring started with 1-yard run by Dan Barber, who ended the night with two touchdowns. Next to find the end zone for the Mustangs was Ryan Marsh. The second quarter started out with a safety when the ball was snapped out the back of the end zone.

Max Gebler had a good night on both sides of the ball with three rushes for 62 yards, seven tackles and a touchdown. The Mitchell defense held the Bucs to minus-3 yards rushing on 18 attempts.

By the end of third quarter it was 51-0, with scores coming from a pass from Trey Drury to Brandon Dubatowka. Then Christian Trinidad and Nate Boler found the end zone with runs of 5 and 9 yards, respectively.

With a running clock in the fourth quarter, the Bucs put up a fight with some good passes by Chris Kylap. And Montavious Reed had a good night returning kickoffs for the Bucs with 82 yards on six returns.
