Defense leads Flag Football past Timber Creek
4/2/2019 9:31:00 PM

Sophomore Ni'Kira Smith threw for a touchdown and ran for another, both in the second quarter, as Flag Football built a 12-0 lead and hung on to beat host and previously undefeated Timber Creek, 12-7. After a scoreless first quarter, senior Nisa Costa came up big with an interception that led to a 20-yard scoring pass from Smith to sophomore Mykiah Presley. Up 6-0, DP doubled the lead to 12-0 on Smith's five-yard scoring run later in the quarter. Timber Creek responded with a long touchdown pass in the third quarter to cut the margin to 12-7 but in the fourth, the Panther defense clamped down, strengthened by junior Nyah Jackson's quarterback sack to kill the Wolves' potential game-winning drive. DP (4-2) will be back in the Spoone Thursday night against University.
