Killian defense smothers South Miami

Killian’s staunch defense shut down South Miami at Tropical Park, and quarterback Antwan Collier figured in four touchdowns (two passing and two rushing) to lead Killian (2-0). He had 191 passing yards and 27 rushing yards.

“The defense did good,” Collier said. “They always got our back. They made stops.”

Killian led 6-0 at the end of the first quarter and scored on its first play of the second quarter on a 2-yard run by Cliff Smith. A 6-yard touchdown pass from Collier to David Munroe put the Cougars up 21-0 at the half.

Receiver Anthony Olivencia finished with a game-high 119 receiving yards on four receptions. He scored on the first play of the fourth quarter on a 15-yard pass from Collier.

The Cougars’ defense forced only one turnover but held South Miami (0-2) under 90 total yards. Quarterback Oscar Piloto led the Cobras with 49 rushing yards.
