NAPLES | When Community School quarterback Drew Tomaini stepped into the huddle Friday night, he couldn't help but smile.
For the first time this season, all of his weapons were healthy, and after a couple weeks of miscues and bad breaks, the Seahawks were finally able to put it all together.
Tomaini threw for 308 yards and four touchdowns, and the defense forced its second-consecutive shutout as Community School drubbed All Saints' Academy 36-0 at CSN.
Community School started the night by airing it out against the All Saints' defense. When that got old, the Seahawks' backs ran through it.
Tomaini orchestrated the show to near perfection, spreading the ball around to six different receivers, and throwing touchdown strikes to three of them. By the end of the third quarter, the offense had amassed 400 total yards, including 300 through the air.
Tomaini and receiver Jonathan Baker hooked up for a pair of touchdowns in the first half and took a 17-0 lead into the break. On the first, Baker pulled down a 33-yard fade, outmuscling two defenders in the corner of the end zone. The second started out as a simple screen, but Baker shed a couple would-be tacklers and sprinted 43 yards to the pay dirt.
It was a three-hour road trip for the visitors and it showed. The defenders were three steps behind the Seahawks' quick receivers, which opened up huge holes in the secondary. As a result, Community School completely broke it open in the second half.
Tomaini completed his first seven passes of the third quarter, including an 11-yard touchdown toss to Emerson Rowe and 25-yard bullet down the middle of the field to tight end Dan Paul for his fourth TD pass of the night.
Tomaini has now thrown for more than 1,000 yards in five games this season.
By the time Ford Ott blocked a Saints punt at the end of the third, the Seahawks were up 36-0. Tomaini and the rest of the starters played only one more series and the subs and the running clock took it from there.
All Saints' quarterback Patrick Fox was 6-for-12 for 80 yards and running backs Troy McNeil and Dwight Drayton eached rushed for 40 yards for a team total of 80.
Drayton also intercepted a Tomaini pass heading into halftime.
The Saints are now 1-2 this season and take on Cedar Creek Christian at home Friday.
