FRIDAY NIGHT HIGHLIGHTS
Rich Central 24, Rich East 21
When Rich Central junior
quarterback Devonte Black fumbled and lost the ball with four minutes to
play, leading to a go-ahead touchdown by rival Rich East, he was in
tears on the sidelines.
Senior running back Darelle Black made
sure his kid brother didn't get too far down in the dumps.
"I told him to keep his head up and that he
was a leader on this team," Darelle said. "I knew we were going to get
another chance to win our Homecoming--game."
He was right.
With his team trailing 21-18 with 2:12 to
play, Devonte directed the Olympians 65 yards in nine plays, culminating
with a 30-yard touchdown pass to Lawrence Nettles with 40 seconds left to
claim a stunning 24-21--Southland Athletic Conference win Friday night in
Rich Central (3-2, 2-0) had lost its--last
six meetings against Rich East (2-3, 0-2).
"Our coaches have a lot of confidence in our
two-minute drill," said Devonte, who lit up the sky with 21-of-36 passing
for 328 yards and three touchdowns.
"On the touchdown pass, we found an opening
in the middle of their defense. Lawrence did a great job getting to the end
zone after making the catch.
"I was really upset after making that fumble,
but my brother really calmed me down.
