Football: Pasco 63, Hudson 0

DADE CITY — Pasco cruised to a 63-0 victory at home against Hudson on Friday night, stretching its unbeaten run this season to six.

Pasco (6-0, 4-0) did not have to run many plays, a total of 31, but gained 304 yards in the first half. Running back David Emmanuel led the Pirates in the opening half with 138 yards rushing and three touchdowns on just six carries.

Quarterback Benjamin Chandler threw two touchdowns to Malik Johns before being replaced by Grant Starling after Pasco took a 49-0 lead into halftime. Starling threw two touchdown passes in the second half.

"We're trying to give the kids a chance to play against a jersey of a different color," Pasco coach Tom McHugh said of the substitutions. "Everybody gets a chance to play, and we try to do that."

Hudson (1-5, 1-3) failed to get much going offensively until its final drive. Quarterback Joey Caruso led the Cobras from their 20-yard line to the Pirates' 29 with six consecutive completing before being injured after a sack. The game ended on the next play.

Pasco will look to maintain its perfect season next week at Fivay, while Hudson will have a chance to get back on track at home against Wesley Chapel.
