Dramatic wins, devastating blowout losses and revenge games were on the menu last week as football games around the lake kicked off Thursday and Friday. This week, Glades Day returns from its bye week and a few lake area teams look to either continue their recent success or turn things around before it is too late.
• Pahokee Blue Devils
The 1-3 Pahokee Blue Devils’ brutal schedule continues to haunt them. Pahokee lost in blowout fashion to an undefeated Palm Beach Lakes team 48-0 last week. And it doesn’t get any easier this week. The Blue Devils travel to Jacksonville to play a very talented Trinity Christian Academy squad at 7:30 p.m. on Sept. 27.
• Glades Day Gators
• Glades Central Raiders
The 3-2 Glades Central Raiders won a fun one against the Palm Beach Gardens Gators last week, 34-33. Glades Central senior wide receiver Desna Washington had a flashy one-handed catch against the Gators while junior defensive back Keontey Fowler snagged a one-handed interception that he then took back for a touchdown. Next the Raiders travel to Cocoa to face a very good Cocoa Tigers team at 7 p.m. on Sept. 27.
• Moore Haven Terriers
The 2-2 Moore Haven Terriers appear to be building some momentum in their season. The Terriers are coming off big wins over fellow Lake Okeechobee teams in Okeechobee and Glades Day. Next they travel to face the Community School of Naples Seahawks at 7 p.m. on Sept. 27.
