Sebring Youth Streaks tame Huskies
By DAN HOEHNE
It was a day of shutouts on Saturday, Oct. 6, as the Sebring Youth Sports football squads not only swept the visiting North Port Huskies, but didn't allow a point in any of the contests.
After the Flag team match was forfeited for a Blue Streak win, the Mitey Mites got things rolling.
Trenton Brown's 55-yard run crossed over the goal line, with Beau Riley scoring the extra point to put up the first score of the day.
The Huskies offense was going nowhere fast, but Sebring got another score on a Davonnie Trent quarterback sneak.
Trent then passed to Elijah McGahee for the extra point before another Trent to McGahee connection would go for another touchdown to complete the first-half scoring.
The Streak defense kept swarming over North Port ball carriers, with Rayshaun Daniels, Ashton Griffin, Sean Armstrong, Tyler Shiflet, McGahee and Brown all came up with big tackles.
McGahee would then take in another touchdown late in the game to provide for the final margin in the 30-0 win.
Next up was the Senior squad which saw a defensive battle extraordinaire.
Back and forth it went with neither offense able to get much going, until Adrian Perdue final dented the board with a Sebring score.
Later, James Ancrum nabbed an interception and returned it for an apparent touchdown, but a flag called it back.
Another Perdue score was also called back due to penalty, leaving the Blue Streak lead at just 6-0.
But while the Huskie defense would then stiffen and hold Sebring in check, so too would the Streak tacklers tighten things up and keep North Port out of the end zone.
And when the dust settled on this battle royale, that 6-0 lead would hold up for the final score.
And whereas the Seniors were somewhat held down, the Sebring Pee Wees would not be denied.
After an Alvin Tomblin interception, the Streaks started to drive.
Tamblin would rip off a 15-yard gain, with Ethan McMillian rumbling for 10 more.
Ryan Brown took it in for an apparent score, but saw it called back with a yellow flag.
Undeterred, Brown took it in again to get the Streaks on the board.
After a halted Husky drive, Brown went in for another score to up the home team lead.
Kavonte Jones got a second quarter touchdown, as did Willis McGuire and Brown to build up a commanding lead by halftime.
Things cooled off a bit in the second half, as both defenses dug in, and Sebring saw a 50-yard Edrick Lockett touchdown get wiped away by a penalty.
But Pyshon Mathis responded with a 50-yard score of his own to cap off the 42-0 win.
The final junket of the day saw another dominating Blue Streak performance turned in by the Junior team.
Kamari Brown and Gage McNellis combined on a big tackle for loss to halt the opening North Port drive, with Tyree Dellop then taking it in for the opening Sebring score.
Tay Tay Ancrum converted the extra point and the Streaks were off and running.
A 39-yard Brown gain on an ensuing drive set up a CJ Paul score, with Andrew Dula getting the extra point.
On the following kickoff, the Huskies mishandled it and Paul pounced for the recovery.
Quarterback Brian Lane then faked a pass to Ancrum and handed off to Devion Littles who ran past the faked out North Port defense for a score.
Lane then got the extra point to push the lead to 21-0.
Jaquan Dukes, Wilbert Segarra and Dula stood out with big plays on defense to keep the Huskies from being able to sustain any drives.
Daniels and Lane then combined for a quarterback sack to halt a drive, allowing Littles to take in another touchdown just before the end of the half.
Brown would get another score in the third, with Ancrum getting the extra point, which would mark the final score of the day.
Both defenses dug in after that, but the game was no longer in doubt and Sebring kept the visiting score column unblemished with the 34-0 win.
Sebring Youth Sports, while enjoying the rousing day on the gridiron, wanted to also thank the efforts of the Blue Streak Cheerleaders for their continued support and enthusiasm in cheering the players on and entertaining the crowd.
