Two sports, one weekend of finales

Maitland's Orangewood Christian School took a playoff run all the way to the state semifinals before finally falling to Westminster Christian by a 13-5 score.

Much of that came on a devastating 9-run rally by Westminster that upended a 4-0 lead Orangewood had held through three innings.

That's when senior starter Luke Weber watched a no-hitter turn into a nightmare.

The defending state champion Westminster team took that explosive inning and turned it into an easy victory to secure a return trip to the state championship.

For the Orangewood Rams, who finish the season 22-8, an impressive playoff run is at an end.


Winter Park was shocked by Freedom High School last Friday, as the Wildcats lost 14-7 in their spring football matchup.

Winter Park had finished last fall's football season 11-2 after taking a playoff run all the way to the regional championship game. Freedom, on the other hand, had won just three games on the way to a 3-7 overall record last fall.

Trinity Prep was trampled by The Villages on their own home field last Friday night, falling 31-7 in a spring football blowout.
