Football Around the Lake

• The Moore Haven Terriers continued their winning streak on Oct. 12, beating Oasis 36-7. There was a lot of buildup leading up to the game that the match-up would be a more competitive affair, but the Terriers ran away with it, bettering their record to 5-1. Moore Haven is now on a four-win streak after their lone overtime loss to Neumann back on Sept. 14. Next the Terriers will hit the road to take on the 3-4 Mulberry Panthers.

• The Clewiston Tigers lost to the Immokalee Indians 34-28 on Oct. 12. The Tigers have been close to winning many of their games this year, but the young team just hasn’t been able to take that final step to secure victories. The Tigers will now close out their season with three road games, starting with Cypress Lake on Oct. 19.

• The Glades Central Raiders improved to 3-3 with a big 49-7 win over Boynton Beach on Oct. 12. CCHS senior wide receiver Jymetre Hester ran for 87 yards and tallied up 127 yards as a receiver against Boynton Beach. Now the Raiders are preparing for their homecoming game against the 5-2 American Heritage Stallions. The Raiders will attempt to get to a 4-3 record on Oct. 19 at Glades Central High School.

• The Glades Day Gators are coming off their bye week to face a 6-1 Cardinal Newman squad that just had a big 41-0 win over Suncoast. The Gators had a great bounce back game on Oct. 5 when they pummeled Jupiter Christian 43-7. We’ll see if Glades Day can carry over some of that momentum on Oct. 19 when they travel to West Palm Beach to play Cardinal Newman.

• The Okeechobee Brahmans continued their streak of games without an offensive touchdown when they faced the Bayside Bears on Oct. 11. The Brahmans lost 27-0 to Bayside and fell to 0-7 on the year. If there was some silver lining to the loss, it was that the Brahmans hung in there with Bayside longer than they have against any other team they’ve faced so far. The game remained tied 0-0 before Bayside was able to bust out a 35-yard touchdown run in the third quarter. Next the Brahmans will celebrate their homecoming week as Eau Gallie comes to town on Oct. 19.

• The Pahokee Blue Devils increased their win streak to three when they dominated West Park Prep 35-0 on Oct. 12. After an up-and-down start to the season that saw the Blue Devils face some of the best teams in the state, Pahokee’s record is now at 5-3. They have a serious shot of running the table and ending the regular season with three back-to-back wins. But first they’ll have to get past the 4-3 Seminole Ridge Hawks. The Hawks have been on a three-loss slide for a month and it won’t get any easier when Pahokee comes to town. The Blue Devils make the trip to Loxahatchee on Oct. 19.
