HOLIDAY — Anclote (5-3) reached the postseason for the second straight year with a homecoming win over Wesley Chapel (0-8) in a Class 5A-District 7 game on Friday night. The win sets up a district title game next week vs. Hudson, a 26-16 winner over River Ridge.
Anclote running backs Willie Barrett (12 carries, 102 yards, one TD) and Trent Crawford (18 carries, 119 yards) provided much of the offense for the Sharks.
Anclote opened the game with a Brandon Vinkler 21-yard pass to Tymere Carter for a touchdown.
The Sharks then blocked a punt and recovered the ball on the 5-yard line, resulting in a 1-yard run for a score by Vinkler.
Vinkler (4-for-7, 54 yards) threw another touchdown of 22 yards to Austin Rumer.
The Wildcats’ first play after getting the ball back was fumbled and Tymere Carter recovered and returned it 8 yards for a TD.
Sharks kicker CJ Peppe made field goals of 23 and 27 yards.
Anclote’s defense was stingy, holding the Wildcats’ offense to just 6 total yards on the night.
