Fort White Indians Fend Off Williston Red Devils 35-20
What was supposed to be a battle of district foes still turned into a pretty good football game. Williston dropped from District 3-3A to Independent over the summer, guaranteeing Fort White a spot in the playoffs (along with Trinity Catholic). In the first meeting since 2004 between the Red Devils and Indians, Fort White came out on top 35-20.
The game was knotted up at 7-7 late in the second quarter when Soron Williams gave the Indians a lead they would not relinquish. Williams punched in a five yard touchdown run to give Fort White a 14-7 lead going into half.
Williston lost their starting quarterback David Heinkel right before the break when a defender rolled his helmet into Heinkel's right ankle. Heinkel would not return, but Brandon Preston did his best to rally the troops, connecting on a short touchdown pass to Damien Strange. The point-after attempt hit the upright and fell no good, so Red Devils still trailed by one, 14-13 in the third quarter.
Fort White never let up on offense, with Andrew Baker connecting on a 24 yard touchdown pass to A.J. Legree to push the lead to eight, and never looked back. The Indians move to 4-2 on the season, while Williston fell to 3-3.
