Football: Tarpon Springs 52, Hudson 6

TARPON SPRINGS — Hudson began the game at Tarpon Springs on Friday night by recovering the opening kickoff. But after a four and out, Tarpon took over on its 10-yard line.

After a 42-yard completion to Darius Daniels, Wyatt Wikle completed a pass to Kenyatta Merriex for a 34-yard touchdown for a 7-0 lead en route to a 52-6 victory.

On the next possession, Hudson (0-8, 0-4) answered with its only score, quarterback Cody Beck's 65-yard pass to Gary Myrick.

After recovering a Hudson fumble with 1:45 left in the first half, Daniels ran 45 yards to give Tarpon (4-5, 3-1) a 17-6 lead at the half.

In the second half, Tarpon quarterback Louis Pappas scored on runs of 6 and 19 yards for a 31-6 lead. The Spongers' offense piled up 590 yards.
