Here are the scores from tonight's Week Seven high school football action:
The Knights led 10-0 early, thanks to a field goal and touchdown run by Jarquavious Graham. The offense went flat after that, and though defense held the visiting Pioneers scoreless in the second half, Ocoee could not muster a comeback and fell, 22-10. Afterward, coach Dale Salapa acknowledged his team is improving and that the defense did well in limiting Oak Ridge's many playmakers.
The Knights are now 1-5 overall and 1-2 in District 7A-4.
It took the Warriors roughly five minutes of play in the first quarter to go up 35-0 over the Bears, as this contest was a rout from the beginning.
West Orange scored on its first two offensive plays from scrimmage and, on the ensuing kickoff following the second touchdown, forced a fumble that Sherman Harp would return for a touchdown.
Warriors second and third stringers saw some meaningful playing time in this one, as West Orange improved to 7-0 on the season.
The final tally of 63 points is a school-record for the Warriors.
Central Florida Christian Academy’s varsity football team left no doubt as to whether it would secure a Sunshine State Athletic Conference playoff berth Friday.
The Eagles traveled to Oviedo and posted a 50-0 victory over The Master’s Academy, clinching the second seed in the SSAC’s Beach Division and a spot in the Coastal League semifinals starting Oct. 31.
CFCA (6-1) amassed 495 total yards against TMA, while the defense registered six sacks and recovered two fumbles. Bradley Dos Santos rushed for 169 yards – highlighted by an 87-yard touchdown run with 3:19 left in the first half – caught TD passes of 26 and 52 yards and played a role in four successful two-point conversions. Freshman quarterback Gehrig Chambless also ran for 152 yards and two scores and completed three passes for 82 yards.
CFCA has an upcoming bye week in advance of an Oct. 24 Senior Night/Homecoming game against All Saints Academy.
