Football: Zephyrhills 43, Wiregrass Ranch 14

WESLEY CHAPEL — Zephyrhills finished a successful season with a 43-14 win at Wiregrass Ranch on Thursday night.

Zephyrhills set the tone by forcing a safety on the first drive of the game, and the Bulldogs totaled 403 yards.

The Bulldogs' Devon Brockington returned a fumble 76 yards for a touchdown in the second quarter.

In the fourth quarter, backup quarterback Michael Smith scampered 66 yards for a touchdown. He finished with 94 yards rushing on four carries.

One blemish for the Bulldogs (7-4) was their ball-handling, as Zephyrhills lost two of five fumbles.

Bulls quarterback Jake Day struggled to get the passing game going and was replaced by senior Ricky Weisbrodt in the fourth quarter. Day finished 3-for-12 for 84 yards with one touchdown and one interception.

Weisbrodt completed 6-of-10 passes, including a touchdown pass on the last play of the game.

Bulls running back Eli Galvan rushed for 86 yards on 15 carries.

Wiregrass Ranch (0-10) lost all three of its fumbles.
