Sharks look to keep streak going against Falcons


It has been all systems go for the Ponte Vedra Sharks in recent weeks and they look to continue that form on the road against the Menendez Falcons at 7 p.m. on Sept. 22.

Similar to Middleburg last week, the Falcons have been struggling to score points the past couple of weeks, with only 13 combined points scored in their last three games.

These struggles offensively are not what the doctor ordered against a Sharks’ defense that will be doing everything it can to amplify those woes even more, especially coming off of a shutout performance against the Broncos.

Shutouts are the dream for every defense, and nothing exemplifies team defense more than looking up at the end of the night and seeing an opponent have zero points on the scoreboard.

Back-to-back shutouts are difficult to come by, but the potential is there for another stellar night on that side of the ball.

Meanwhile, on offense the Sharks have started to do their own sort of clicking on all cylinders, as it looks to build off of a career night for senior quarterback Ben Burk, who had five touchdowns to four different receivers.

However, the real question is not how the Sharks can top that, but instead how can they keep it going, because success is one thing but maintaining that success is another level and the Sharks are looking to prove they have mastered that by winning their third game in a row.

And although the passing game took center stage against Middleburg, it is important to not forget about the Sharks’ dynamic rushing attack led by Brian Case, who is a consistent force and capable of breaking 100 yards on the ground each week.
