Jamal Wallace rushed for three touchdowns, Stacey Coley caught a pair and Timonte King rushed for two as Northeast routed Coconut Creek 50-0 at Creek on Saturday night.
The outcome was never in question, just when the game would go into running clock. That happened with over six minutes to play in the second quarter — a violation of the FHSAA rule that states the running clock can begin in the third quarter at the earliest.
However, the rule was ignored and once Northeast upped its lead to 36-0 midway through the second the clock never stopped again.
The Hurricanes (4-1, 2-0) jumped out quickly with a 51-yard touchdown pass from Brion Sanchious to Coley on the first play of the game. Then Sanchious hit Coley on a 21-yard touchdown pass at the end of the first.
The floodgates opened in the second.
Wallace went for a 6-yard touchdown run, then followed with a 60-yard run down the middle of the field and then with a 13-yard touchdown run with 6:12 to play in the first half.
Wallace finished with 90 yards rushing. Sanchious finished with 176 yards passing and a pair of touchdowns.
The Cougars (0-5, 0-2) got past midfield once when they reached the 45, but immediately moved back to the 50 on a false start penalty in the second quarter. Other than that, they played on their end of the field as the Hurricanes defense held them to 58 yards of total offense.
• American Heritage 55, Sebring 7: The Patriots took a 48-0 lead into the fourth quarter, dominating on the road. Tyler Cogswell went 9 for 14 with 185 yards passing and threw two touchdowns to Tyler Carmona. Sony Michel finished with 94 yards on 10 carries and two touchdowns. Michael Deeb had nine tackles and a sack and Torrance Gibson had an interception.
• Dillard 40, Boca Raton 17: LaDarion McBride scored three touchdowns and Dre’Sean Nelson ran for another to lead the Panthers (3-2) to the home victory.
• Archbishop McCarthy 37, North Broward Prep 34: Brandon Vicens ran for three touchdowns to lead the Mavericks to a comeback win. McCarthy overcame an early 14-0 deficit for the shootout win.
• Highlands Christian 26, Coral Springs Christian 20: Trystan Lago went 13 of 24 for 183 yards and three touchdowns to lead Highlands. Arelious Burns ran for 158 yards on 16 carries and Kyle Audet caught five passes for 98 yards.
• North Palm Beach Benjamin 42, Westminster Academy 25: Spencer Saliba finished with 21 carries for 188 yards to lead the Lions. Ray Sharp went 14 of 37 for 211 yards, two touchdowns and two interceptions.
• More late scores: Piper 42, Coral Springs 6; South Florida HEAT 55, Princeton Christian 0; Coral Springs Charter 35, Boca Raton St. Andrews 29.
Once Pine Crest star freshman Julia Montgomery got past the pre-race jitters in her highly anticipated flrunners.com Invitational debut, it was smooth sailing to another milestone.
Montgomery charged to an early lead in the Girls’ Race of Champions, held her own with some of the top runners in the state, and finished third in a personal-best 17:52 at Chain of Lakes Park on Saturday.
“I was so nervous before the meet,” Montgomery said. “With the music and all those schools I was competing against, it seemed like a state meet. At the 2-mile mark I settled into a rhythm and was able to pick off one girl. I was so stunned at the finish line to see I was running 17 minutes.”
Montgomery, who came in ranked No. 15 in Florida after winning the Fleet Feet Invitational last week in a then personal-best 19:13, shone brightest for a Panthers’ squad that either set a personal-best or season-best on Saturday.
Ella Wurth finished 33rd in a season-best 19:33 while a 6-9 finish by John Decker (17:27) and Matt Hernandez helped the Panthers’ boys team claim fourth in the Unseeded A standings.
“It was Ella’s best time in two years,” Pine Crest coach Paul Baur said. “The entire team was really impressive. I was real pleased with everybody. It is exactly what we needed.”
Cardinal Gibbons took third behind James Sahagian (14th, 17:56) and Ross Clark (17th, 18:05).
In the Boys’ Unseeded B race, North Broward Prep junior Jack Klumpp made good on his prediction of a victory by outclassing the field in 17:10, 40 seconds ahead of Boca Raton’s runner-up Wyatt Ebert.
“Within the first half mile I knew I would win the race,” Klumpp said. “I feel like I have a long way to go for my best race, but I’m on the right track. This is my first real win. It feels pretty good.”
