This second round of the USF Sling & Shoot 7-on-7 tournament of the summer came to a close when Pasco defeated Gaither High 27-12 to win the coveted Sling and Shoot title.
The field consisted of 51 teams that came from all over the state to compete in the two day long 7-on-7 passing tournament. All teams played the cross pool seeding on Saturday and Sunday morning and began the single elimination tournament shortly before 1:00 pm.
The competition was tight from the onset as the field reduced with every round of play as the teams played through the heat as they whittled down to the final 8teams of Armwood, Plant, Gaither, Palm Beach Central, Eastlake, Paso, Jesuit, and Countryside. Armwood defeated Plant, Gaither beat Palm Beach central, Jesuit lost to Countryside and Pasco defeated Eastlake in overtime to make the final four. Gaither shocked a stacked Armwood team and Pasco beat Countryside to reach the championship game, before taking home the title.
Afterwards USF Head Coach Skip Holtz talked about the success of the tournament.
