Football: Sickles 62, Wharton 32

TAMPA — Sickles (6-4) closed out the regular season in impressive fashion, hanging a season-best 62 points on Wharton (3-7). The Gryphons rebounded after falling to Alonso last week and will take on unbeaten Armwood in the first round of the playoffs next week.

The Gryphons featured a dynamic duo in the backfield that accounted for over 450 total yards.

"We need to stick to our game plan and I believe we can shock the world (against Armwood)," said Sickles running back Cary White, who rushed for 150 yards and three touchdowns.

Brieann Dollard rushed for 173 yards and a touchdown, blocked a punt that he returned 40 yards for a touchdown, and returned a kick 98 yards for a score.

"(Armwood) won't look past us," coach Brian Turner said. "They are the best team in the state, but we aren't scared."
