Another hurricane late in the season is threatening the start of the playoffs this week. Whether games happen will depend on how the situation with Subtropical Storm Nicole evolves this week.

Pahokee Blue Devils (8-2)

The Pahokee Blue Devils headed into Belle Glade as favorites to take on their rival Glades Central in the Muck Bowl. And they delivered on that expectation. Pahokee won 46-14. The Blue Devils have now won back-to-back Muck Bowls after shutting out the Raiders in last year’s game, 28-0. Jashon Benjamin and Otavious Allen each had two rushing touchdowns in the lopsided win.

Moore Haven Terriers (7-3)

The Moore Haven Terriers’ impressive season continued with another big win last week. The Terriers defeated Roar Prep & Vocational Academy 43-0 in Moore Haven. Junior quarterback Henry Boyd had four touchdowns on the night with 252 yards passing. Junior Zailin Jackson had 135 yards rushing and two touchdowns.

Clewiston Tigers (4-4)

The Clewiston Tigers continued their bounce back in the second half of their season last week. The Tigers held off a late rally by the Okeechobee Brahmans to win 37-21. The Tigers have now won four straight after dropping the first four games this season. Chauncy Cobb rushed for three touchdowns against the Brahmans, with Johnkevious Rivers rushing for one of his own. Defensively for Clewiston, Xavier Charles Dayreon Franklin each had an interception.

Glades Central Raiders (2-8)

This has been a season filled with adversity for the Glades Central Raiders, and that adversity continued last week. The Muck Bowl matchup against the Pahokee Blue Devils is always a tough game, but even more so this year with a redhot Pahokee team coming into game with so much momentum. Senior quarterback Casey Felton connected with fellow senior Robert Luckas for two touchdowns against the Blue Devils in the loss.

Glades Day Gators (2-7)

The Gators were defeated by the Palm Beach Christian Prep Saints 32-7 last week. The Saints were able to do the majority of their damage through the air, notching a total of 256 passing yards against the Glades Day defense. The Saints stymied the Gators offense, ending the night with five sacks.

Okeechobee Brahmans (1-8)

The Okeechobee Brahmans showed some fight against the Tigers in the second half of their game. The Brahmans were down  24-0 at halftime and it looked like the game was headed towards a blowout win for Clewiston. But the Brahmans were able to makes things interesting in the third quarter by scoring two touchdowns to make it 24-14. Ultimately, Clewiston’s Chauncy Cobb was able to put the game away in the fourth for the Tigers.
