Sickles 41, Alonso 21

TAMPA — Running back Cary White ran for 188 yards and scored four touchdowns Thursday as the Gryphons rolled up almost 500 yards of offense. Sickles (7-2) scored touchdowns on its first three possessions.

Two of those scores came on John Melvin Hendrick touchdown passes of 43 and 47 yards, respectively, to Brieann Dollard and Chris Nahat.

After White closed the half with another score, he opened the third quarter with a 69-yard dash.

"Cary is great to have in the backfield," said Sickles coach Pat O'Brien. "We have a good mix of talent on offense and we were able to control the ball tonight."

Quarterback C.J. Bennett and Alonso (3-5) cut the deficit to 13. But the Gryphons ended the game with a 10-play scoring drive.
