Zephyrhills, Florida -- Pasco against Zephyrhills football is known simply as The 9-Mile War. For more than 70 years these two schools, separated by only nine miles have faced off in one of the Bay area's most intense rivalries.
This year, the winner of the game also will claim the runner-up spot in Class 5A, District 6.
Pasco got on the board in the first quarter when Zack Gleaton, attempting to punt out of Zephyrhills own end zone, dropped the snap. Lane Stancil recovered the ball, and the Pirates lead 7-0.
