Hallandale High had a tremendous Homecoming test Friday against a poised Coral Springs team. Despite falling behind 13-0 in the first quarter, the Chargers stormed back with 28 unanswered points and remained unbeaten with a 28-20 win.
Hallandale´s defense bounced back from a sluggish start and thwarted the Colts attack. Four sacks and and interception by Jaelyn Faulk helped turn things around.
Quarterback Tyler Huntley threw for 134 yards and three touchdowns. He also helped out with 60 yards on the ground. Taj McGowan led all rushers with 81 yards, 21 of them on a second-quarter scamper that put Hallandale (4-0) up for good. Chris Cotto led all receivers with 69 yards and a touchdown.
Coral Springs senior quarterback Jake Bofshever threw for 178 yards and three touchdowns, with 115 of those yards coming in the first quarter. David Goodwin also contributed with 50 yards receiving and a touchdown for the Colts.
Both Hallandale and Coral Springs begin district play next week with big tests against Coconut Creek and Deerfield Beach, respectively.
