Dolphins High school Media day at Hard Rock Stadium
If you were planning on coming out to Traz Powell Stadium this Friday night for the big marquee matchup of the week, Central and Carol City, you had better change your plans.
Carol City Athletic Director Xavier McCray confirmed on Wednesday afternoon that the game has been switched and will be played Saturday night at 7 p.m. instead.
McCray said the main reason for the switch was to give the players and coaches an extra day to prepare for the game after the threat of Hurricane Dorian had cut into practice and prep time.
That doesn’t mean there won’t be football played on Friday night at “The Mecca.”
▪ Northwestern Athletic Director Andre Williams confirmed on Wednesday that the Bulls, ranked No. 2 in the Miami Herald’s Top 20 South Florida poll, will not be traveling to Bradenton to take on IMG Academy.
Instead IMG, ranked No. 5 in the nation (Max Preps), will make the trip to South Florida and play the Bulls at Traz beginning at 7:30 p.m.
▪ Blanche Ely 36, Coral Glades 17: Duel-threat quarterback Darnell Deas rushed for 153 yards and two touchdowns while throwing for 126 yards and a score as Blanche Ely improved to 2-0 last week.

Courtney Gordon Jr. (4 receptions, 77 yards, TD), Dewante Deas (2 rushes, 72 yards, 3 receptions, 42 yards), Northern Illinois commit Jashon Prophete and Deron St. Fleur (one interception each) also contributed to the Tigers win.
