Miami Springs survived a sluggish start to eventually pull away from Hialeah Gardens to record a big 44-0 win on Saturday night at Milander Stadium. The big headliner for the night for the Hawks was quarterback Gerald Anderson who completed 9 of 12 passes for 237 yards and four touchdowns to lead the way.
Anderson hit David Bradley for an 11 yard score in the first quarter as Springs (2-0) took a 17-0 lead to the locker room at halftime thanks to a Gavari Singletary fumble recovery in the end zone for a touchdown and David Torres 37 yard field goal as time expired.
Then came the second half when Anderson really got hot and found Myron Morris for 10 yards, Jahwon Grant for 66 and Bradley again for 35 yard touchdown passes to make it 38-0 and initiate a running clock. The Springs defense, led by Stacy Shaw in the middle with 10 tackles, held the Gladiators to 99 total yards.
“Just a good all-around team effort,” Springs coach Darryel Bethune said. “Lunch [Anderson’s nickname] really was clicking [Saturday] along with our receivers and now we just want to keep things going.”
Gardens (1-1) was held to 99 total yards.
