DADE CITY — The Pasco juggernaut kept rolling along Friday with another dominating effort in a 54-0 win over Anclote in a Class 5A, District 6 matchup.
Quarterback Jacob Guy came up with his usual standout performance and was done early in the third quarter. The senior passed for 116 yards and four touchdowns to four receivers and now has 18 for the season.
"I think he did a good job," Pasco coach Tom McHugh understated.
McHugh was especially impressed with his defense, which posted its fourth shutout with a running clock in five games. Lane Stancil had two interceptions and a fumble recovery for the Pirates.
"I'm proud of them," he said. "The goal is to have (the scoreboard) say 0 for guests."
Guy's scoring passes went to J.D. Edwards, Janarion Grant, Trey Dudley-Giles and Michael Larry. Dudley-Giles also scored on a 47-yard punt return.
The Pirates (5-0, 2-0 in 5A-6) were just as effective in their rushing game.
David Emmanuel gained a game-high 162 yards on just nine carries, scoring on runs of 50 and 65 yards. Even backup Blake Holtzhower figured in the scoring, plunging into the end zone from a yard out for his first varsity touchdown.
Anclote's best field position came late in the fourth quarter when Zack Guevin intercepted Edwards and returned the ball 46 yards to the Pasco 24-yard line. Chris Gregory also had an interception for the Sharks, who remain winless at 0-4, 0-2.
