Island Coast's high-powered offense was on display Friday night as the Gators cruised past the Estero Wildcats 51-20 at Gators Stadium.

Estero opened with a 55-yard run by QB Christian Phillips to put the ball on the Gators' 4-yard line. Phillips' one-yard touchdown pass to Nick Nataro gave the Wildcats life.

The Gators answered as T.J. Johnson returned the ball 99 yards to tie the game 7-7.

The Gators' offensive line provided ample time for QB Kurt Benkert, who went 5-for-5 on a later drive, capping it with an 18-yard scoring pass to James Washington.

Estero's next drive ended deep in Island Coast territory when Nick Quinones recovered a fumbled handoff for the Gators.

The Gators next drive featured 13-yard passes from Benkert to Ter'Rohne Franklin and Nick Ghigliotty with 12- and seven-yard runs by Devon Calhoun. Benkert capped it with an eight-yard TD pass to Vincent Green.

Benkert completed a 50-yard pass to Franklin to open the second half, setting up a 14-yard Kevin Vigne field goal.

Later in the quarter, a Benkert's 40-yard pass to Tyler Carver set the Gators up for Benkert's one-yard dive.

Benkert's 45-yard TD pass to Green and Calhoun's five-yard TD run made the Gator lead insurmountable.

The Gators (1-1) host crosstown rival Mariner next Friday night.
