Primus hooked up with receiver Sasha Mentor for an 86-yard catch-and-run for a touchdown. …Hudson got on the scoreboard right before halftime. Quarterback Austin Smith hit wide receiver Dontaie Collins on a 38-yard strike. …Cobras running back Kyrie Rodriguez rushed 10 times for 66 yards.

Did you know? Wesley Chapel coach Ben Alford was quick to point out that in the first half, his offense executed very smoothly, committing no false start penalties, one holding call and no delays of game. …Hudson had nine players ineligible for the game, including Land O'Lakes transfer Gary Myrick.

Audible 1: " I'm very pleased with how the guys played, but we can do better. The kids buy into the system and that's a big thing. Hopefully we keep working this summer to get better and do some damage this fall. " — Alford

Audible 2: " Of course tonight's result is not what you want, but in my mind the kids we have right now are winners. What encouraged me is the kids recognized what they did wrong tonight and know what we need to do to correct it." — Hudson coach Justin Fenton
