GULFPORT - The spring classic, won 24-10 by Boca Ciega, verified what many already expected from the 2007-08 teams: the Pirates hold an offensive powerhouse in Orhian Johnson, and the Gibbs offense has a long way to go.
The Gladiators threatened early after an opening kickoff return by David Washington. Unfortunately, that was the extent of their first-half offense; the second half was highlighted by a third-quarter Tommy Hains field goal. The Gladiators had 45 yards of total offense.
The duo of Johnson and Mundrae Francis proved effective on the ground and in the air for the Pirates. Johnson's 151-yard passing game included two touchdown passes to Erick Clayton.
Johnson also rushed for 100 yards to back up Francis' 125 yards and one TD on the ground. The Pirates' game was nearly perfect aside from the 115 yards lost to penalties.
"A team's value is not in their numbers, " Pirates coach Stevie Thomas said.
