Flanagan 21, Hallandale 13

Stanley rallies Falcons past Chargers; Heritage’s Rogers wins

 

Special to The Miami Herald

Flanagan coach Don Simon wanted to put his team in a situation it had never been in before following sophomore quarterback Ryan Stanley’s 9-yard touchdown pass to sophomore Emonee Spence with 1:24 remaining in a tie game against Hallandale.

So, he had the offense go for two, and it delivered.

Running back Christopher Nealy reached the end zone from the wildcat formation as the host Falcons went on to win their homecoming game 21-13 on Friday.

When the Chargers (2-4) got the ball back trailing, 14-13, freshman linebacker Khalil Roan intercepted quarterback Tyler Huntley — his third mistake of the night — and returned it 26 yards for the score.

Hallandale led 6-0 at the half on a pair of field goals by senior Kevin Guzman from 24 and 26 yards. On their first scoring drive, the Chargers went 3 for 4 on third down, including a pair of conversions of 10 yards or more to go.

The Falcons (5-2), which now ride a three-game winning streak, knotted the score with 5:01 left in the third quarter on Nealy’s 1-yard run from the wildcat, but couldn’t take the lead as junior Giancarlo Bonilla’s extra point was blocked.

Senior Jonathon Jackson’s 35-yard interception return for a touchdown with 25 seconds to go in the third helped Hallandale regain a 13-6 advantage. It marked the second time Stanley was picked off on the night. The other time, the Chargers returned it for a touchdown, but it was called back by a penalty.

CROSS-COUNTRY

Daesha Rogers, American Heritage’s eighth-grade track star, crossed the finish line first, clocking in at 19 minutes 33 seconds.
