Sentinel Super 16 No. 5 Winter Park dominated defensively and kept its perfect football season alive, going on the road Thursday to defeat Olympia 21-7.
Turnovers doomed the Titans, as the swarming Wildcats defense picked off Olympia quarterback Joe Milton five times and recovered a pair of fumbles.
Winter Park (6-0) caused its first turnover on the opening kickoff, recovering a fumble on the return. The Wildcats capitalized quickly, as Cameron LeGree reached the end zone on a two-yard sneak.
Later in the quarter, Olympia (3-3) equaled the score on a wacky play. A handoff exchange went awry, and the ball bounced into the end zone, where offensive lineman Pedro Giovanni emerged with possession for a touchdown. The game remained tied at 7-7 going into halftime.
Winter Park came out of the locker room with newfound momentum, with LeGree connecting with Brian Gomez for a 62-yard touchdown pass. Just over a minute later, Jordan Manning intercepted Milton and returned it 33 yards to the end zone, extending the lead to 21-7.
LeGree finished with 118 passing yards to go with his pair of touchdowns. Tyrone Davis led the Wildcats with 127 yards on the ground.
The Wildcat defense set the tone all evening, clamping down on the Olympia passing game. Four of Milton’s five interceptions came in the second half, with Michael Lopez coming down with a pair of picks.
Winter Park evened the series record at 2-2 with the win.
