What worked: Everything Fort Myers tried in the second half. Trailing 22-0 at halftime, the Green Wave got two quick touchdowns, a 49-yard pass from TJ Douglas to James Brunson, and a 21-yard run by TJ Morgan to get back in the game, setting the stage for Steve Brosy’s game-winning, 35-yard field goal with 11 seconds left.
Needs improvement: Sophomore jitters.
Quotable: Fort Myers coach Sam Sirianni Jr.: “The other day they wrote an article about all our sophomores and my dad taught me well, with sophomores the first time around, you know what you’re going to get. All eight of them in the first half were deer in the headlights. I told them at halftime, you’ve got that out of your system, now just relax.”
