Two of Central Florida’s smallest private schools combined for a scoring clinic on Friday night, and it was The Master’s Academy that soared to the victory.

Ninth-grade sensation Terrance Gibbs, who already has a scholarship offer from Miami, rumbled for 187 yards and five touchdowns, and Matt Gillis passed for 229 yards and two touchdowns and ran for another score to lead Eagles (2-0) to a wild 63-28 win against visiting Trinity Prep (1-1).

Gillis scored on runs of 51 and 24 yards in a 21-point burst in the third quarter as Master’s pulled away.

Extra Points:

– Gibbs’ performance overshadowed a superb performance by Trinity Prep quarterback Spencer Fetter, who rushed for 130 yards and four touchdowns and passed for 255 yards. The Saints could not find the end zone after Fetter’s 1-yard touchdown run on the opening series of the second half as The Master’s Academy scored 35 unanswered points.

– The teams battled back and forth in the first half with three ties before Master’s went ahead for the fourth time on a 1-yard touchdown run by Gibbs. The freshman’s touchdown followed a controversial series of plays in which Trinity Prep was penalized 43 yards for a defensive hold. Officials tried to reverse the call, but Master’s already had run two plays after the penalty and the ball was re-spotted back at the 1-yard line.

– Master’s scored on all four of its possessions in the first half, including a 71-yard touchdown run by Gibbs, and an electrifying 80-yard kickoff return by Tyson Mobley. Gibbs also had a 1-yard touchdown run on the Eagles’ second series.

– Fetter also was dazzling, passing for 144 yards, and running for 48 yards and three touchdowns in the first half. His top target, Tommy Tight, caught 5 passes for 93 yards, and finished with 10 catches for 137 yards.
