High School Football: Week Four

Wekiva bounces back against West Orange

Blue Darters face toughest opponent this Friday


Week four in local high school football had only one game last week. The Wekiva Mustangs bounced back from two straight losses, while the 3-0 Apopka Blue Darters had the week off.

Wekiva 12, West Orange 9

The Wekiva Mustangs opened the season with a 24-12 win against Olympia High School but followed it with losses to Ocoee (13-6) and Lake Minneola (34-21). 

It was time to get back into the win column - and win they did.

Fueled by stellar defense, a touchdown pass by quarterback Ty'Ray Davis in the second quarter, a Jamarian Robinson 25-yard TD run in the third period, the Mustangs took a 12-7 lead early and held on to defeat the West Orange Warriors 12-9.

Davis threw for 218 yards on the night.

Leading 12-9 late in the fourth quarter, safety Joshua Bennett intercepted a West Orange pass to seal the deal.

The win evens Wekiva's record on the season to 2-2. They host the Lake Brantley Patriots this Friday, who lost to Lake Mary 35-2 last week and are 1-3 on the season.

Apopka faces Edgewater in a battle of local undefeated powerhouses

After three straight victories and a bye week, the Apopka Blue Darters face off against perhaps their toughest opponent this Friday - the Edgewater Eagles. On the year, Edgewater is 4-0 after defeating Jones High School 31-14 last week.

The Blue Darters also stormed out of the early season gates with wins over Ocoee (2-0), West Orange (14-7), and a come-from-behind victory over Dr. Phillips 18-14.

Kickoff is at 7 p.m. at Roger Williams Field on the campus of Apopka High School.
