It was vintage Goleman ground football as the Gators pounded out 311 yards running their wing attack while attempting just two passes as they got their first win of the year with a 42-7 victory over Mourning on Thursday night.
Leading the way for the Gators’ ground attack was sophomore running back John Correa with 157 yards on 19 carries and two scores. Kalonji Hill (76 yards, touchdown) and Daryn Jones (72 yards, touchdown) completed the Goleman (1-2, 1-1 in 16-7A) ground attack against the Sharks (0-2, 0-1).
Defensive back Kayshawn Lamour pitched in with a 25-yard scoop-and-score fumble return in the third while Richard Marcner wrapped up the scoring with an 80-yard kickoff return with 9:05 left to get the running clock going.
“Give it up for my O-line tonight,” said Correa. “Whenever running backs have a big night, it’s not just because of them. It means your O-line is moving people out up front and it was great night for everyone. We’ve got a young team and we’re only going to get better from here.”
