SEMINOLE — After a scoreless first half, Osceola found its offensive touch Friday night, beating Northeast 28-7.
Wilan Harvey’s 55-yard touchdown run to start the third quarter sparked the Warriors’ offense.
“It was crazy because I kind of thought he was going to get it, but it came into my hand and I kept my balance,” Harvey said. “I just remember my assignments, keep focused, and make plays.”
Despite two Warrior fumbles, two Viking penalties set the Warriors up for a scoring opportunity. Quarterback Ryan Allan pushed through 8 yards to score Osceola’s second touchdown.
Seniors Jamil Morris and Quadarius Patterson added touchdown runs in the fourth quarter of 18 and 1 yard, respectively.
On defense, Chad Brittan and Harvey helped keep the Vikings bottled up at the line of scrimmage.
“I was staying focused and kept my head in the game, all of my responsibilities and what I was supposed to do,” Brittan said.
Harvey seized a 36-yard interception midway through the third quarter.
“They did what they’re supposed to do, that’s all we ask,” said Mike O’Hanlan, the Warriors’ defensive coach. “Discipline and doing their assignment, it’s that simple.”
Darius Lacy scored the Vikings’ first touchdown of the season on a 40-yard reception.
