SPRING HILL — Last year’s meeting between Nature Coast and Springstead seemed like an anomaly when taking a deeper look into the matchup.In the past five years, only once had the Sharks fallen to the Eagles — and that was 30-19 in 2019. Nature Coast won the previous four matchups by a combined score of 124-47.Despite giving it their best shot, the Eagles came up short in what became a ground-oriented contest Friday night. The Sharks forced three turnovers and came away with a 15-3 victory. Nature Coast remains Hernando County’s lone undefeated team, but Cory Johns minced no words when critiquing his team’s performance.“I told them we are not a very good football team, because we are not,” Johns said. “They’ve let people build their heads up into something they’re not. I was disappointed in everything that went on tonight. It was the worst performance by an offensive line since I’ve been head coach here.”Springstead was playing in just its second game of the season after missing the first two weeks due to a coronavirus-related case. Mike Garofano’s club started off with a surprising 13-6 loss to Weeki Wachee a week ago, but looked a lot more in synch Friday night at the Eagles Nest.Nature Coast (4-0) got on the board first, when wide receiver Dedric Hall (four catches, 47 yards) took the direct snap and punched it in from a yard out for the early 6-0 advantage. Springstead (0-2) methodically kept the ball on the ground and ate up tons of clock time with quarterback Dante Young (23 carries, 61 yards) at the controls and running back RJ Mariani (25 carries, 86 yards) gaining good yardage.The Eagles looked to tie in the second quarter after recovering a pop-up kick and driving it into of the Sharks' 10-yard line. Nature Coast’s defense held up, with Springstead settling for a 20-yard Devin Salazar field goal, leaving the score 6-3 heading into intermission.The Sharks played more ball control in the second half. Nature Coast quarterback Ethan Fahey ended the game 7-of-12 passing for 80 yards.
