Football: Wharton 42, Spoto 13

TAMPA — Wharton showed it is ready for the playoffs, drubbing Spoto 42-13 Friday night.

The Wildcat offense wasted no time getting started as Chase Litton connected with KJ Hopkins on a 69-yard TD pass on the game's first play. The Wildcats led 21-0 at halftime.

Hopkins put the finishing touches on a strong offensive performance by returning a punt 45 yards for a touchdown late in the fourth quarter.

Wharton has won five games in a row, and its execution in all three phases of the game has been sound. Orlando Dr. Phillips, next week's playoff opponent, put Wharton out of the postseason a year ago, a point that was not lost on senior linebacker Rocky Enos.

When asked what he thought about travelling back to Dr. Phillips, Enos answered: "Revenge."
