Sharks best Knights in rematch for first round victory


The Ponte Vedra Sharks outpaced the Creekside Kinghts from start to finish and won 49-36 in the first-round playoff matchup on Nov. 10.

It was a bounce back victory in many ways for the Sharks (8-3), who had just lost to the Knights a week earlier, but this time they had their home fans behind them in the Shark Tank.

Brian Case and Landon Okla fueled the Sharks' offense with big games that included a trio of touchdowns each, including a 54-yard recieving touchdown on a fake punt for one of Okla's scores.

Next up, the Sharks will  travel to take on No. 1 seed Gainesville Buchholz in the second round at 7:30 p.m. on Nov. 17.

The Bobcats (11-0) defeated Mosley 59-0 in their opening round matchup tonight.
