The Tiny Mites, for boys ages 7, 8 and 9, took on Wewahitchka for one half of play, and engineered a 12-6 victory.

Brock Johnson, who coaches the team together with Byron Blan and Kelvin Martin, said the team had two offensive series and scored both times. Lamarius Martin scored on a 50-yard touchdown run, and Caden Turrell sprinted into the endzone on a 70-yard run.

On Saturday, the two dozen young football players again traveled to Blountstown, this time to take on the budding Tigers in the season opener.

Johnson said the team lost 34-14 to Blountstown. The up-and-coming Seahawks scored when Caden Turrell broke loose for a 55-yard touchdown run, and when Martin threw a 65-yard touchdown strike to Jarvis Turrell.

“We fumbled the ball too many times,” said Johnson. “Other than that we played good.”

For the Pee Wee bracket, for boys age 10,11 and 12, Franklin County found victory in the jamboree, when they blanked Port St. Joe 14-0 on the strength of two touchdown runs by Ethan Riley in the one half of play..
