Football: Sunlake 36, Wiregrass Ranch 0

WESLEY CHAPEL — Sunlake blew out an opponent with a shutout for the second straight week, improving to 2-0 with Friday night's 36-0 victory at Wiregrass Ranch.

The Seahawks, who were 8-2 last season but missed the playoffs, have outscored opponents by a combined 84-0.

"We've got a lot of fight to us," Sunlake coach Bill Browning said. "We should be physical."

Senior Cameron Stoltz has been putting up impressive numbers in his first year as starting quarterback. Although he only passed for 95 yards against Wiregrass Ranch, Stoltz threw for three touchdowns and has seven in two games.

Jamal Jones had two of those scoring receptions on plays of 19 and 31 yards. Stoltz also connected with Rashaud Daniels for a 17-yard touchdown.

The Seahawks picked up a 27-yard scoring run from Mike Lopez, and Thomas Koen kicked a 21-yard field goal.

Solid defensive plays led to two of Sunlake's first three touchdowns, with Jones returning an interception 31 yards and Nick Hoffman setting up Daniels' touchdown by recovering a fumble.

As in Sunlake's season opener, a running clock was used in the second half.

Wiregrass Ranch tried to reach the end zone on its last possession, but the drive stalled at the Sunlake 8-yard line.

Backup quarterback Ricky Weisbrodt completed a 24-yard pass to Matt DeCandio — the Bulls' longest play of the game — during that drive.

The Bulls, who mustered just 56 yards of offense, tried an onside kick at the start of the second half but failed to recover it.
