Special to the Miami Herald

Miramar (2-0) passed for a team combined 257 yards to shut out the Northeast Hurricanes (0-2) Friday.

The Patriots scored on their first offensive play from scrimmage as quarterback Gerald Hawkins found receiver Kevin Purlett in the flat for a 65-yard touchdown. It was the first of three touchdowns on the night for Purlett to go along with 131 yards receiving.

Miramar’s defense forced seven fumbles on the night. One fumble went through the end zone for a safety and linebacker Ryan Samuels recovered another in the end zone for a touchdown in the fourth quarter. The defense also intercepted Northeast’s quarterbacks twice in the game.

The Patriots’ special teams also blocked two punts in the fourth quarter.

The Hurricanes’ offense only managed 117 total yards of offense and never made it past Miramar’s 30-yard line.
