Delray American Heritage defeats Westminster Christian 27-19

One year after hosting Delray American Heritage in a regional final and getting eliminated, Westminster Christian was hoping history would not repeat itself. But unfortunately, due mainly to an outstanding day by running back Devin Singletary who the Warriors probably wished had missed the bus, the Stallions ended Westminter’s season again with a 27-19 victory.

Singletary was a one-man wrecking ball as he rushed for 296 yards on 21 carries and scored all four of Heritage’s touchdowns. He delivered the final nail when, with his team up by just one, he scored from 12 yards out with 5:12 to play to clinch it. Heritage (8-2) will travel to Palm Beach next week and play Oxbridge Academy while Westminster finished 8-2.

TOP TWO

Singletary: had 226 of his yards by halftime before wearing down in the second half and confirmed that he is considered Florida State, Miami, Illinois, UConn and Western Kentucky with a scheduled trip to Illinois in December.

Michael Whyte: Westminster running back finished as his team’s leading rusher with 87 yards on seven carries and one touchdown.

THEY SAID IT

“I’m proud of our kids, we hung in there [Friday] against a very good football team. But I’m not big on moral victories either. We didn’t make enough plays when we needed to.” — Westminster coach Sedrick Irvin
