Defending State Champion Dr. Phillips Football had to wait nearly 90 minutes for a chance to get on the field due to heavy rain and lightning, but still managed to get in a half of varsity action in a 14-7 victory over visiting Winter Park. Junior Japerri Powell gave the Panthers a first quarter lead when an errant snap sailed over the head of Winter Park's quarterback and after several scoops and boots, Powell pounced on the fumble in the end zone for the DP touchdown. Sophomore Riley Stephens knocked the first of his two extra points through the uprights and the Panthers led, 7-0. After Winter Park tied the game on a 30-yard touchdown pass, DP jumped back in front for good in the second quarter when freshman quarterback Canaan Mobley rolled to his right, picked up a crushing block from sophomore wide receiver Shi Gaskin, and took it to the house from 18 yards out for the 14-7 final score. DP will now get set for their summer conditioning program before getting back on the field Friday, August 17th at Osceola in the Kickoff Classic.
