AFA trounces Keswick, stays perfect


© St. Petersburg Times, published November 5, 2000

ST. PETERSBURG -- An older Admiral Farragut squad was too much on the ground for visiting Keswick Christian as the Blue Jackets ran for 493 yards and grabbed a 49-0 lead through three quarters en route to a 49-22 win before a large Homecoming crowd.

Admiral Farragut improved to 9-0.

Wes Erbe ran for 248 yards on just 12 carries, including two touchdowns, and Jon Hunt carried 14 times for 151 yards and four touchdowns. Erbe opened the scoring 4:54 into the game with a 33-yard run, and then added his second scoring run less than three minutes later, this time covering 85 yards.

Then at the end of the first quarter, Hunt busted loose on a 33-yard scoring jaunt and Brian Jack's point-after made it 21-0. Jack was 7-of-7 on extra points and put all eight of his kickoffs into the end zone for touchbacks.

"It was a tremendous team effort," Admiral Farragut coach Mike Jalazo said. "We came out and were ready to play. What a tremendous first half."

The Blue Jackets led 42-0 at the half after Hunt ran for touchdowns of 5, 5, and 55 yards in the second quarter. They stretched their lead to 49-0 on a 50-yard touchdown run by Erbe in the third quarter, but the fourth quarter belonged to Keswick Christian.

The Crusaders (5-4) got on the board when Chris Schooley hit Rob Dileo for a 5-yard touchdown pass. Then at the 5:55 mark of the fourth quarter, Chad Schooley (15 rushes for 79 yards), Chris' brother, found the end zone after a 52-yard run. The Crusaders' second two-point conversion made the score 49-16.

Chris Schooley was 9-of-23 for 211 yards with three interceptions and a touchdown pass. His favorite target, Reed Rudge, had a solid afternoon, hauling in five of those passes for 83 yards.

Keswick closed out the scoring on a tricky hook-and-lateral play that covered 53 yards and ended with Chad Schooley taking the pitch at the Admiral Farragut 45-yard line and carrying it the rest of the way for the score.

"We try to teach our kids not to quit," Keswick coach Rick Sanson said.

"Physically, our young kids just aren't there yet, but I'm very proud of the effort of my kids in the second half."
