Unbeaten Deerfield Beach cruises to win against Coral Glades

Deerfield Beach pounded Coral Glades into the ground Friday night, rushing for a combined 266 yards as the Bucks (8-0, 6-0 District 11-8A) shut out the Jaguars (0-8) and moved one step closer to a district title.

Running back Brandon Powell, a UM commitment, sped by defenders all game and rushed for 123 yards on 12 carries. He had touchdown runs of 18 and 20 yards in the first half and later returned a punt 45 yards for a score in the third quarter.

“Brandon is a special kind of guy,” Deerfield Beach coach Allen Jackson said. “He does everything we ask him to do.”
