LAKE MARY, Fla. – A soggy Friday night in Seminole County produced another wild one in the Osceola-Lake Mary series. The difference between these two state-ranked teams was a mere extra point. Lake Mary made it. Osceola did not as the Rams prevailed 29-28 in overtime in their home opener.

The teams traded momentum throughout the game. Lake Mary, in front of its fired-up student section, took a quick 15-0 lead in the second quarter, only to see Osceola storm back with a strong rushing attack.

In the third quarter, with the game tied at 15, Lake Mary senior quarterback Cannon Thompson took charge, scoring on a quarterback keep late in the third, then connecting with one of his favorite targets, Nick Westbrook, for a 10-yard touchdown in overtime. Thompson finished with 127 yards passing. Westbrook finished with 109 receiving as Lake Mary improves to 2-0. Osceola falls to 1-1.
