After 18 years as an assistant, South Plantation’s Nick Delleria got a win in his first game at the helm, and his Paladins sure made it a memorable debut.
Cooper City took advantage of poor execution, turnovers and a pile of penalties to take a 13-0 lead at the half.
"They’ve got it. I am not going to allow them to lose," Delleria said about his halftime message.
Never miss a local story.
Bradley Royce: Led the Paladins with 182 rececptions and a 25 yard TD catch.
Jaret Mundth: Sealed the Paladins’ victory with a 54-yard interception TD.
THEY SAID IT
