Pasco 28, Sunlake 8

DADE CITY — The last time Jacob Jackson was at Pasco, he endured a lopsided loss as the starter for Gulf. One year later as the starter for Sunlake, things did not turn out much different.

Pasco (8-1, 7-0) finished undefeated in Class 3A, District 7 play with a 28-8 victory on Friday.

The Seahawks (3-6, 3-4) started strong, sacking D.J. Clower three times in the first half. Sunlake scored first when Jackson pushed his way into the end zone for a 1-yard touchdown. The Pirates scored before halftime on fullback Clifford Phillips' 31-yard scamper.

The Pirates came out in the second half strong. Clower hit junior Hakeeme Ishmar on a 75-yard pass to put the Pirates up 15-8. Pasco scored again in the third quarter on freshman Janarion Grant's 6-yard sweep play. The Pirates got another score by Grant when he burst up the right sideline for a 94-yard run to put the game away. One bright spot for Sunlake: Its defense forced four turnovers and had five sacks.

"Pasco is what you want your team to be like. They are very fast and they are so well coached," Sunlake coach Bill Browning said.
