The Buccaneers not only were hoping to get their first win of the season, but were looking to score their first points of the season. Gulf lost its first two games by a total score of 94-0.

Gulf's offense struggled against the overpowering defense of Pasco, led by defensive end and Florida commit Joey Ivie. The Buccaneers attained just 39 total yards and one first down.

Three standout players for the Pirates took over. Senior quarterback Jajuan Henry was effective both through the air and on the ground. He finished with 34 rushing yards on four attempts and went 3-for-3 for 35 passing yards. Henry ended the game with one rushing and one passing touchdown.

Senior running back David Emmanuel compiled 134 rushing yards on just four attempts and got in the end zone twice.

Senior running back James McClinton also had two touchdowns, one on a 12-yard rush and another on a 65-yard punt return.

The game was called after a Gulf player was carted off the field at the end of the third quarter with an injury.
