Miami Springs football holds off Hialeah-Miami Lakes

Darryel Bethune Jr.’s 1-yard touchdown run in the second quarter and a late safety proved to be enough as Miami Springs (5-1, 2-0 District 16-7A) held off pesky Miami Lakes, 16-6.

Miami Lakes’ Christopher White intercepted a pass in the end zone, and the Trojans recovered a fumble in the end zone to thwart two fourth-quarter drives by Springs. But Miami Lakes (1-4, 0-2) couldn’t generate anything on offense over the final eight minutes.

Bethune Jr. ran for 143 yards on 25 carries, and Golden Hawks quarterback Gerald Anderson passed for 144 yards.

Miami Lakes’ Simino Walden had 107 yards rushing on five carries.
