Football: Pasco 41, Delray Beach Village Academy 6

DADE CITY — Senior-laden Pasco (10-0, 7-0) overpowered Delray Beach Village Academy with its physical style of play to win 41-6 Friday. It's the third straight undefeated regular season for the Pirates.

Led by Florida Gator commit Joey Ivie, the Pasco defensive line was able to put pressure on Tigers (4-5, 4-1) quarterback Larry Brihm, forcing him to throw four interceptions.

"We came out here and executed perfectly. We still have a little work to do but if we keep playing hard and doing what we're supposed to do at practice, the sky is the limit for us," Ivie said.

Talented senior athlete Janarion Grant was not only a scoring threat on offense, but on defense and special teams.

Grant ran for 81 yards and a touchdown on three attempts. He also caught a 58-yard touchdown from Benjamin Chandler.

On the opening kickoff, Grant ran the kick back for a 95-yard touchdown. In the closing minutes of the second quarter, he got into the end zone for the last time after returning an interception 20 yards for a touchdown.

"Our team did very good tonight. We did our job and played with discipline. It's going to be hard in the playoffs but we are ready for it," Grant said.

Next week, Pasco (9-0, 7-0) will host the North Marion Colts in the Class 5A region quarterfinals.
