North Fort Myers scored on its first five possessions and 9 of 10. The lone exception ended as time expired in the first half.
Junior Shannon Sims led the team with 135 yards on seven carries, while Dylan Czerwinski, a senior, added 134 yards on 14 carries, all them in the first half. Junior Jake Duff added 112 yards rushing, including a 52-yard score in the second half while playing quarterback.
“Czerwinski is doing what we hoped he could do,” said North Fort Myers coach Brian Makar. “We made the switch in the spring to move him to tailback. He’s quite possibly our best all-around athlete, and he’s showing why so far.”
The Sentinels were held to 168 total yards in the game and seven first downs.
“Offensively we’re not clicking yet,” said ECS coach Tyler Gold. “We’ve spent probably 70 percent of our time in the gym like everyone else has with the weather. We’ve only had about five practices where the lightning meter didn’t go off so far.”
Senior quarterback Brandon Makar and fellow senior Austin Campbell also scored on touchdown runs to round out the scoring for North Fort Myers.
