+ Jets waive Mardy Gilyard
Mardy Gilyard is without work — again.

Gilyard, the 2005 FPC graduate, was waived Saturday morning by the New York Jets, marking the second time in a one-week span for the wide receiver.

Thursday afternoon, Gilyard posted a picture to his Facebook page of his new locker, drawing plenty of comments from friends, fans and family about being back in white and green, the same colors he wore while at FPC.

However, on his Twitter page Friday afternoon, Gilyard tweeted: “On such a mental roller- coaster right now smh.......#” (SMH is an acronym for “shaking my head.”)

The transaction didn’t process until Saturday morning.

+ FPC falls to Seabreeze 
The Flagler Palm Coast Bulldogs football team collapsed in the fourth quarter Thursday, Sept. 8, allowing Seabreeze to score 19 unanswered points en route to a 40-13 victory.

The Bulldogs (1-1) trailed 21-13 early in the fourth quarter, but turnovers led to FPC’s demise.

“We couldn’t tackle their tailback, and we couldn’t score when we needed to,” FPC coach Caesar Campana said, referring to Seabreeze’s Trevaughn Rodriguez, who had 161 yards rushing for three touchdowns.

The Bulldogs hope to get their second win of the season when they host New Smryna Beach 7 p.m. Friday, Sept. 16.

+ Matanzas tops Florida Air
The Matanzas Pirates cleaned up the penalties, dominated the ground game and scored a two-point conversion.

All of that was enough Friday, Sept. 9, as the Pirates earned their first victory of the season with a 50-13 drubbing of Florida Air Academy.

Quarterback Al’Kwazi Spencer went 12-for-21 for 200 yards and one touchdown.

The Pirates (1-1) host University Christian 7 p.m. Friday.
