The Blue Darters, undefeated on the season, visited Dr. Phillips in Week 4 and gutted out a 22-20 victory over the Panthers. A safety in the second half was the difference in the game as Apopka improved to 4-0.

Dr. Phillips, which had won 35 consecutive regular season games, has now lost two in a row.

Apopka returns home in Week 5 against University High while Dr. Phillips continues its brutally tough schedule, hosting undefeated Mainland next.
