Miami Northwestern 40 Killian 15
No one in the state has had a tougher road than Miami Northwestern. They have beaten previously undefeated Columbus in round one, the red hot Central Rockets in round two, and now Killian.
MNW held Lamar Miller to 75 yards on 13 carries and super athlete Wayne Times continued his stellar play. Times returned a punt for a touchdown and scored on a QB sneak after a 28 yard run from Daquan Hargrett. Times also caught six passes for 60 yards. Teddy Bridgewater was poised all night and ran for two more scores.
Lamar Miller ends his senior campaign with the coveted Dade County rushing title.
Miramar 34 Deerfield Beach 30
Miramar QB Eugene Smith completed 20-of-31 for 368 yards as Miramar escaped with a 34-30 win. Stedmon Bailey had nine catches for 222 yards and the two WVU commits showed that they will be a potent combo for years to come. It was a 32 yard strike to Ivan McCartney that put the Patriots into the lead with about four minutes remaining. The game came down to the final play where Josh Nelson intercepted a Dennard Robinson desperation pass to seal the deal.
Robinson completed 10-of-30 for 220 yards in his final high school game.
Miami Northwestern and Miramar will square off at Lockhart Stadium in a very intriguing match up.
Seminole 28 Apopka 7
The Seminole defense shut down Jeremy Gallon and Apopka in a tremendous defensive performance. Gallon had just 51 yards on 26 rushes and Apopka had just two runs over 10 yards. Defensive end's Dyron Dye and C.J. Thacker deserve a lot of credit for containing the Apopka rushing attack. After leading 6-0 at the half, a Niles Owen 64 yard kickoff return set the tone for the second half. Seminole electric senior Andre Debose was bottled up most of the night, but hit an 87 yard sweep in the 4th to seal the deal. Ray Ray Armstrong also scored on a seven yard run.
Boone 31 Royal Palm Beach 6
Boone advances to it's third straight state semi-final (lost to Lake Brantley two years ago, beat Apopka last year). Boone was unable to run the ball with super senior James Washington, but QB Sam Hutsell had a tremendous night throwing the ball. Hutsell went 10-of-15 for 218 yards and three touchdowns. Dan Williams 68 yard touchdown reception was a back breaker that Boone up 17-0. Michael Keith(47 and 49 yard) caught two touchdowns for Boone.
Boone will travel to Seminole next Friday night.
