FPC defeated Deltona 43-7 on Friday, Oct. 5.
In a game the started off eerily similar to the Bulldogs' loss to Sanford Seminole, Flagler Palm Coast's offense started off slow against Deltona.
The Bulldogs, playing on the road, were held in-check for most of the night by the Wolves, who sacked FPC quarterback Donovan Montoyo twice in the first quarter. The defense stopped Deltona multiple times but gave up one touchdown in the first half.
"We weren't hitting the throws we usually make on offense, and penalties would hurt them," FPC coach Travis Roland said. "We weren't being consistent at all. We just weren't able to finish drives."
Bulldogs kicker Stephen Usina drilled a 42-yard field goal at the end of the half to give the Bulldogs their first lead, 9-7.
"Then, we just kind of turned it on," Roland said. "We started playing our game."
The Bulldogs opened the third quarter with an onside kick, but it was whistled off. However, they tried the onside kick again and recovered it.
FPC (6-1, 1-0) scored 34 points in the second half to blowout Deltona 43-7 on Friday, Oct. 5, at Deltona High School. Montoyo scored 3 rushing TDs in the onslaught.
The trust in the defense is what led Roland to be aggressive to start the second half.
"Like I said after Matanzas: If there's ever a time to be confident in our defense, this is the year," he said. "We've got to go for it all."
