Ocoee football pulls away from Olympia for big win | Observer Preps
Just when it appeared that the Olympia Titans were going to give the Ocoee Knights a run for their money, Lovie Jenkins swung the game between the Metro Conference rivals in the Knights' favor for good.
Olympia, which had trailed 20-0, got on the board just before halftime, by way of a kickoff return for a touchdown by Donrick Means. Then, early in the third quarter, Titans quarterback Garrett Velin hooked up with Tyrese Rodriguez on a deep pass for a 40-yard touchdown and suddenly Olympia was down just six points, 20-13.
It is the first regular-season win for the Knights under new head coach Aaron Sheppard. The Knights bounced back after a 47-0 loss to Apopka in Week One.
"We just wanted to get healthy and make sure we were playing hard, fighting hard and doing all the right things," Sheppard said. "All in all, it was a good win."
