Having been eliminated from playoff contention last week, Coral Reef played its final regular-season game like it was its own little playoff game, as the Barracudas cruised to an easy 35-13 win over Hialeah in a non-district matchup at Harris Field.
Coral Reef (4-6) took a 14-0 first quarter lead on a pair of touchdown runs and never looked back. Hialeah, which qualified for the playoffs as a District 13-8A runnerup, finished the regular season 5-5 and will get ready to take on Coral Gables in a first round matchup next Thursday, Nov. 13 at Tropical Park.
Mehki Ervan: Coral Reef running back enjoyed a big night as he finished with 141 of his team’s 285 rushing yards and two scores.

THEY SAID IT
“It’s disappointing in that we didn’t make the playoffs but at least the kids came out [Thursday] and played hard, and we finished the season on a positive note.”
— Reef coach Javi Valdes
