By Staff | Sep 9, 2023



Oasis 25, Canterbury 18: Down 18-8, the Sharks battled their way back to set up Jonathan Perez’s game-winning TD run in the fourth quarter. Ryan Rosado’s 37-yard field goal had tied the score at 18 earlier in the period. Parker Smith and Fred Harley also scored touchdowns for Oasis. Jacob Hall had two sacks as the Sharks’ defense shut out the Cougars in the second half. The Sunshine State Athletic Conference victory boosted Oasis to 3-0 on the season.

Mariner 46, Ida Baker 6: Quarterback Isaiah Tolbert ran for three touchdowns and passed for two more as the Tritons (3-0) ran away from the Bulldogs. Justin Lewis was on the receiving end of both of Tolbert’s scoring passes. Kayland Davidson scored the sixth Tritons’ TD, reversing his direction and racing 60 yards into the end zone. Mariner scored the final 31 points after Ida Baker came within 15-6 in the third quarter. Brendan Donnelly ran 20 yards for 0-3 Ida Baker’s touchdown.

Cape Coral 13, Bonita Springs 7 OT: The Seahawks matched Mariner’s 3-0 start, but it was the defense that led the way for Cape Coral. Cape’s defense stood tall in the overtime, stopping Bonita at the 1-yard line. That set up Darrion Jones’ 25-yard touchdown pass from Ivan Harvin for the win. Kalonji Hamilton’s 60-yard run in the first quarter opened the scoring for Cape Coral. The Bull Sharks’ only score came on an interception return. In three games, the Cape defense has allowed one offensive touchdown.

Bishop Verot 49, Dunbar 14: What was supposed to be a big early season showdown turned into the Carter Smith show. The Vikings quarterback ran for six touchdowns of 4, 2, 50, 2, 7 and 10 yards. The 50-yarder came on a fourth down at midfield. Smith also had a role in the seventh Verot TD, teaming up with Matthew Turner on a 28-yard scoring pass. The Vikings have put up 105 points in two games, both victories. Bishop Verot’s win halted a 18-game Dunbar unbeaten streak against Lee County teams.

South Fort Myers 14, North Fort Myers 7: Andre Devine’s 96-yard punt return got the Red Knights into a 7-all tie in the fourth quarter, but South won on a Justin White TD catch with 5:07 remaining. Chase Enguita, who connected with White on that pass, ran for the Wolfpack’s other score in the second quarter. The Red Knights’ offense was held in check all night long, with Devine and the rest of the punt-return team providing the North (0-3) points.
