Land O'Lakes 56, Wesley Chapel 6

WESLEY CHAPEL — Land O'Lakes routed Wesley Chapel 56-6 on Thursday night.

The Gators (6-0, 4-0) started quickly, scoring on their fourth play of the game. Quarterback Stevie Weatherford hit Alex Robinson on a 50-yard pass, setting off a scoring spree in the first quarter. Tyler Peak added a 16-yard touchdown run, and Chadd Williamson intercepted Keegan Tanner to set up another Weatherford to Robinson touchdown of 48 yards.

The Gators' passing game looked flawless as Weatherford hooked up with Jason Tello, and Peak scored again when he punched his way into the end zone on a 47-yard run to make it 35-0 in the first. Peak finished with 12 carries for 117 yards.

Wesley Chapel (2-5, 1-3) came out in the second quarter running the ball, with senior Chris Pierre-Charles scoring on a 2-yard run to prevent the shutout. A bright spot for the Wildcats was Jon Mahan, who rushed 19 times for 99 yards.

Weatherford, who left in the middle of the third quarter, finished 12 of 14 for 262 yards and six touchdowns.
