WINTER SPRINGS, Fla. – ClickOrlando.com's High School Game of the Week went on the road to Winter Springs this week to cover the Winter Springs Bears welcoming the Oviedo Lions on Winter Springs Senior Night.
First off I have to send a great thank you to the Oviedo parent who so generously lended this reporter some bug spray. If it were not for you, I would have been covered more than I already am in mosquito bites!
But, this article is not about me so let's get to the game!
Oviedo came into tonight 7-1 and completely in control of its season. The Winter Springs Bears came into tonight at 1-7 and a win over Oviedo would be a high point on a season that has been deemed a disappointing one.
The first half was all Oviedo, all the time. Oviedo jumped out to a 21-0 lead and virtually never looked back in this game.
Lion's running back Jurell Green rushed for 2 scores and Macolm Bryant caught a magnificent pass from QB Chris Davis to put the Lions up 28-0.
The Bears would add a score at the end of the first half to make the score 28-7.
However, the second half was a case of mistaken identity for the Bears who may have been lost in the first half but found themselves in the second scoring 22 points and fighting the all way.
Oviedo would tack on a couple of scores as well and would go on to be victorious 41-29. The game seemed as if it was never in doubt for the Lions as they kept the ball on ground and kept the clock moving in the second half.
Wes Allen's Oviedo squad now improves to 8-1 and Winter Springs drop s to 1-8.
