Miami Springs 34, Goleman 0

Miami Springs runs through Goleman

 

Miami Herald Writer

Led by running backs D.J. Bethune and Malik Thomas, Miami Springs rolled past Goleman on Thursday at Milander Stadium in a District 16-7A contest.

Bethune, thanks to a 97-yard touchdown run in the game’s final minute, finished with 177 yards on just five carries. Thomas was the workhorse, wracking up 121 yards on 16 carries and scored three of Springs’ five touchdowns. Johnny Rembrick had the other Springs score, a 70-yard punt return in the third quarter.

The win was the fifth in a row for the Hawks, who moved to 5-1 overall and 3-0 in the district, setting the stage for a district showdown with American next week at Traz Powell Stadium. Goleman which was led by quarterback/running back O’Brian Anderson’s 175 yards on 31 carries, fell to 0-7 (0-4).

“This game was a little closer than it looked,” said Springs head coach Darryel Bethune, whose team lead just 7-0 at the half. “We definitely struggled in the first half but managed to do enough to pull away in the second half and now we’re looking forward to a big game with American next week.”
