Miami Beach beats South Miami, stays in chase for district


Special to the Miami Herald

Miami Beach (6-2, 3-1 District 14-8A) escaped with a victory over South Miami (3-5, 1-3) at Memorial Field to stay in the hunt for a district championship.

Despite trailing 7-0 at halftime and being plagued by penalties and a pair of costly turnovers, the Hi-Tides managed to get things rolling in the second half thanks to running back Markel Anderson.

Miami Beach had trouble putting drives together in the first half, but an interception off South Miami quarterback Patrick Coats in the third quarter proved to be a spark for the Hi-Tides. The turnover set up the tying score, a 2-yard quarterback dive into the end zone by Osky Serbin, shifting the momentum toward the Hi-Tides.
