Senior Henry Caldwell intercepts Olympia's first pass in DP's 24-14 victory (2016)

Defense leads Football to 9th straight title
10/22/2016 3:23:00 PM

Senior defensive end Robert Porcher registered four sacks and the DP defense held host Olympia to net one yard rushing in a 24-14 victory over the Titans to clinch DP's ninth consecutive District Championship. The Panthers (6-2) jumped out to a 17-0 lead in the second quarter and after Olympia (4-2) closed the deficit to three, the Panthers added a third quarter score to pull away for good.

DP got on the board on their opening drive after safety Henry Caldwell's interception gave the Panthers possession at the Titans' 35. Arvis Evans snared a pass from Marvin Washington for a 15-yard gain down to the 20 but the drive stalled at the Olympia three, allowing Sterling Stockwell to knock through a 20-yard field goal for a 3-0 lead. The Panther defense held Olympia to a three and out on their next drive and stuffed the Titans for a pair of huge losses the drive after that. Robert Porcher sacked Olympia quarterback Joe Milton for a nine-yard loss on first down while Marcus Tillman drilled a receiver for a ten-yard loss a few plays later. After Tanner Ingle's punt return set the Panthers up at the Olympia 48, Emare Hogan ran for 13 yards, DJ Charles carried for 13 more and Devodney Alford capped the drive with a two-yard touchdown run for a 10-0 lead at 10:32 of the second quarter. The Titans gathered some momentum on their ensuing drive, but after a 26-yard pass play to midfield, safety Henry Caldwell came up big again with a fumble recovery off an errant snap and DP capitalized quickly. Caleb Walls picked up a 13-yard reception, Marvin Washington ran for 22 more on three carries and Kenny Palmer charged in from three yards out to push the lead to 17-0 with 4:29 left in the half.

Olympia would respond on their next possession, connecting on a 76-yard pass play down the visiting sideline, and added another score following a DP fumble on their ensuing possession to close to 17-14 but that was as close as they would get to the potential upset. In the third quarter, the DP defense forced a turnover on downs which set the tone for the remainder of the game. Four of Olympia's final five drives ended on downs while the fifth resulted in a fumble. With 6:32 left in the third, the Panthers took over possession at their own 41 and put together an eight-play game-sealing touchdown drive. After Marvin Washington ran three times for 26 yards, Emare Hogan took a screen pass from Washington and slipped through the secondary for a 26-yard touchdown to close out the 24-14 final.

Washington completed 12 of 23 passes for 106 yards and ran for 96 more while Emare Hogan finished with 114 yards of total offense. Defensively, Robert Porcher broke the school record for career sacks (25) set previously by head coach Rodney Wells and shared by Bradley Moore. Porcher now has 27 career sacks, 11 this season, and will have at least three games left to break the single season mark of 15 (Bradley Moore and Kenderson Obas). Cameron Williams finished with six tackles and a sack while Henry Caldwell tallied five tackles with a pass breakup, fumble recovery and an interception.

Dr. Phillips has now defeated Olympia in their last 14 meetings and increased its District winning streak to 35 games. DP will be on the road the next two weeks, Thursday at Cypress Creek and the following Friday at Evans in the regular season finale. The Panthers will host the District 6 runner-up (Bradenton Manatee, Lithia Newsome or Sarasota Riverview) Friday, November 11th, in the Regional Quarterfinal.
