ZEPHYRHILLS — After a sluggish first quarter, Pasco (4-0) turned it on to the tune of a 50-7 win against Division 3A rival Zephyrhills on Friday night.
Injuries caused the first quarter to last a little more than an hour, but it couldn't help the Bulldogs from trailing by 29 at the half.
Pasco quarterback Jacob Guy threw for 134 yards and four touchdowns, going 9 for 16 with one interception. Tre Dudley-Giles caught touchdowns of 28 and 12 yards, while Mike Clower also benefited from Guy's superb performance, finishing with 22- and 34-yard touchdowns.
David Emmanuel ran for 125 yards, contributing to the Pirates' 254 total rushing yards. Emmanuel also recovered a fumble on defense and returned it for a 40-yard touchdown.
For Zephyrhills (0-4), Chris Reaves was the glue that held the offense together. Reaves, who finished 13 of 30 for 150 yards and one touchdown, was a constant threat on the ground, scrambling for 126 yards. But he threw three interceptions.
Even though the Bulldogs spent more time with the ball than without it, they could not reach the end zone more than once, a 19-yard touchdown pass to Jamal Roberts.
Zephyrhills lost three of five fumbles. Pasco lost two of three fumbles.
