Senior wide receiver Devon Buckhanon (2018)

Football struggles at Apopka
9/14/2018 11:58:00 PM

Dr. Phillips Football looked to build off its second half momentum from a week ago against West Orange, where they clawed back from a 24-point deficit and put themselves in a position to win late in the game, but Friday night at Apopka, the Panthers mustered just five first downs and 152 yards of offense all night and gifted five turnovers in a 38-7 loss to the Blue Darters. DP (1-3) dug themselves into a 14-point hole in the first quarter as poor special teams play crippled the offensive starting field position in their first three possessions and an interception at the DP 10-yard line set up an easy Apopka touchdown. Despite turning the football over four times on offense in the first half, the Panther defense was able to apply a tourniquet to stop the bleeding in the second quarter as they forced three punts, a turnover on downs and recovered a fumble to keep DP in the game at the half, down 14-0.

In the third quarter, Apopka went three and out to open and the Panthers took over at the Apopka 43 and delivered immediately. On second and 12, sophomore quarterback Canaan Mobley came off the bench and connected with senior Devon Buckhanon deep down the right sideline for a 45-yard touchdown to cut the deficit to 14-7 with 10:10 left in the third quarter. Apopka counter-punched on their next drive, however, marching 70 yards in five plays, highlighted by a 33-yard touchdown run, to make it 21-7 and the Darters would go on to score 17 points in their next three possessions to win going away. Stephen Dix led the defensive effort with 18 tackles, a sack and a forced fumble. Jaquarri Powell finished the night with 13 tackles, two sacks and also forced a fumble.  DP will be on the road again next Friday night at Daytona Beach Mainland before coming back to the Spoone for an early Homecoming against Oak Ridge in their first District game of the year.
