Football: Pasco 61, Anclote 0

DADE CITY — Pasco opened Friday's game with a bang — on a 53-yard triple reverse pass — then never looked back en route to a 61-0 victory over Anclote.

Pasco quarterback Jacob Guy only played the first half, throwing for 98 yards and two touchdowns. David Emmanuel encountered little resistance on the ground, running five times for 123 yards and two touchdowns, and Jamie Byrd added two rushing touchdowns. Mike Clower had the two receiving touchdowns, and Janarion Grant, who threw the first play's pass, ran for a touchdown.

Pasco (6-0), which recovered three of Anclote's four fumbles, finished with 491 total yards of offense.

Anclote (1-6) had little success on either side of the ball, only stopping Pasco from scoring on two drives; a missed field goal as time expired in the fourth quarter. The Sharks, who gained only one first down, punted seven times for an average of 33 yards. Quarterback John Forgione completed 3-of-12 with one interception, which proved costly. After a penalty negated the return for a Pirates touchdown, Pasco still scored on the next play.

The superiority of Pasco's defense is evident in Anclote's final statistics: 14 total yards (17 passing and -3 rushing).

  1. A trip down memory lane of Bucs' preseason expectations

  3. For starters: Rays at Yankees, in a pretty big series


    The Rays open a challenging road trip tonight in New York, the first of four games against the wild-card leading Yankees.

    Chris Archer will be on the mound for the Rays.
  4. Bucs' O.J. Howard says in NFL, 'it's an SEC game every day'


    Bucs rookie O.J. Howard hasn't played in an NFL game yet, but he already appreciates the grind of an NFL season -- every week can be a loss, perhaps more so than in college football, where Alabama went 12-0 in nonconference, non-bowl games in his three years there.

    Bucs rookie O.J. Howard, shown playing for Alabama in the national championship game in Tampa in January, says every game in the NFL is an SEC game, with no letdowns.
  5. Bucs' Mike Evans wants his 'A' game in 4th NFL season


    Bucs receiver Mike Evans has been in the NFL for three seasons, and in two of them, he's had 12 touchdown catches, setting and then matching his own team record. He made the Pro Bowl for the first time last season, but if you ask him to grade those three years, he doesn't see an "A" product just yet.

    Bucs receiver Mike Evans, shown during an OTA workout last month, said he wouldn't give himself an "A" for any of his first three NFL seasons, despite going to the Pro Bowl and twice catching 12 touchdown passes in a season.
