Sharks pummel Wolfpack with unanswered 70 points


Ponte Vedra’s first conference football game of the season was far from being competitive. The Sharks scored ten touchdowns on their way to a 70-0 shellacking of Wolfson on the road. The Sharks scored early, late and often, racking up a school record 10 touchdowns.

Nick Tronti’s pass to JD Pirris, good for 30 yards, thirty seconds into the game opened the flood gates and the points kept coming until sophomore Duncan Van Kouteren scooped up a Wolfson fumble and ran into the Wolfpack endzone with fifteen seconds left in the game.

In between Ponte Vedra totally dominated play despite playing its starters for just the first half.

Van Kouteren’s fumble recovery came on Wolfson’s eighth drop of the game. Moments before, Andrew O’Dare picked up the Wolfpack’s seventh fumble and converted it into the Sharks’ 64th point.

Ponte Vedra found a variety of ways to score points—through the air, on the ground, fumble recoveries, and even a safety.

Each of the Shark running backs, Hal Swan, Quint Boyd, Christian DePersio, and sophomore Zack King scored. Shark receivers Marshall Few, JD Pirris and Harry Jorgenson each caught touchdown strikes from Tronti. Tronti completed 10 of 13 passes for 228 yards in one half of play and ran 4 yards for a score.

Ryan Gleason, the Sharks’ premiere punt blocker added another block to his impressive resume. Ryan Morgan, Jake Yale, Ruan Martins, Jacob Reeves, Kelly Johnson and Luke Constantino also had fumble recoveries for the Sharks.

The Sharks scored in every quarter putting up 27 points in the first quarter. They held a 41-0 lead at half time then added 29 points in the second half.

Ponte Vedra (4-0) will travel to Pedro Menendez on Friday for its next game, a non-conference matchup, then will return home to play Westside (1-3) in a conference game.
