Highlights of Hallandale's 56-38 victory against Jackson at Traz Powell Stadium on Friday, Oct. 2, 2015.

Just when you thought there was no way he would be able to top last week’s remarkable 468-yard performance in a losing effort against St. Thomas Aquinas, Hallandale quarterback Tyler Huntley did it Friday night.

With his team squaring off in a key District 16-5A contest against Jackson at Traz Powell Stadium, Huntley put on an even more dazzling aerial show as he passed for 515 yards and seven touchdowns as the Chargers overcame a sluggish start and pulled away for a 56-38 victory

The win moves Hallandale, which lost a 36-28 heartbreaker to Aquinas last week, to 4-1 overall but 2-0 in a tough district with a monster game against American Heritage on the horizon in a few weeks.

“That sounds nice but it’s not about numbers for me,” said Huntley, a Utah commit. “It’s all about team and getting a big district win here no matter how we did it was the most important thing.”

Said Hallandale coach Dameon Jones: “He’s a four year starter and has been coached up very well. In addition, he’s a very humble kid who worries a lot more about finding a way to win games than whatever kind of numbers he puts up but between last week and this week, it’s really something.”

Following an upset loss to Cardinal Gibbons a few weeks ago, Friday’s defeat was devastating to Jackson’s playoff hopes as the Generals (2-3) sit 0-2 in the standings.

After a wild first half that saw 59 points scored and the Generals take a 31-28 lead to the locker room at halftime, Hallandale took a 34-31 lead early in the third when Huntley found Demari Simpkins on a 35-yard scoring pass. But, led by quarterback Desmond Phillips who had a solid night completing 15-of-31 passes for 186 yards and two touchdowns, Jackson retook the lead when he hit Gregory Grate for a 39 yard score midway through the third.

But Huntley never flinched, driving the Chargers right back down the field going 85 yards in just six plays which included a 43-yard strike to Joshua Hammond, before finishing things off with a 14-yard scoring strike to Chris Cotto to give Hallandale the lead for good at 40-38.

An 11-yard scoring strike to Juwan Hardy made it 46-38 and the Charger defense took over from there as Jaelyn Faulk, Edward King and Deion Jackson picked off Phillips on three consecutive possessions leading to a field goal and 3-yard Zach Moss touchdown run with 6:01 left to complete the scoring.


▪ University School 28, Clewiston 21: With 10 seconds remaining, Henry Colombi and Kenny McIntosh hooked up for a 4-yard touchdown to lift the host Sharks (4-1) to a key 7-4A victory. Colombi passed for 233 yards with three touchdowns (Darnell Fleury, Jerry Jackson and McIntosh) and also scored on a 45-yard burst up the middle.

▪ Chaminade-Madonna 70, Somerset-Homestead 6: The host Lions gave their homecoming crowd something to cheer for early and often as they rolled to a 5-0 start. Chaminade, which led 42-0 after the first quarter, got a pair of touchdowns from both Shaun Shivers and Keyondre White. Quarterback Kole Stealy also had a big day by tossing three touchdowns in the opening quarter.

▪ Archbishop McCarthy 34, Belle Glade Glades Day 7: Anthony Rey rushed for 146 yards and scored twice to lead the host Mavericks (6-0). The senior back scored on a 60-yard jaunt on the first play of the second half to put the game away.
