• Okeechobee Brahmans
The 1-7 Okeechobee Brahmans came out strong against the favored Westwood Panthers on Oct. 18. The Brahmans were 32-point underdogs to the Panthers, but throughout the first half it was Okeechobee who played better on both sides of the ball. The Okeechobee defense had two take-aways in the first half. After the Brahmans put together one of their best drives of the season on offense, they lead the Panthers 7-6 at halftime. But in the second half things came apart for Okeechobee. The Brahmans have had trouble finishing games this year, and that pattern held up late in the Westwood game as Okeechobee would go on to lose 27-7. Next up, the Brahmans travel to face the Glades Day Gators at 7 p.m. on Oct. 24.
