Class 6A football: Orlando Dr. Phillips 14, Durant 7

Class 6A Durant comes up a touchdown short

ORLANDO — Since transferring from Cypress Creek to Dr. Phillips last spring, Nico Ranieri has thrown for 2,382 yards and 24 touchdowns, broken numerous school records and led the Panthers to a district title.

And after three seasons without a playoff appearance at Cypress Creek, the senior quarterback finally got a taste of the postseason Friday night, leading Dr. Phillips (10-1) over Durant (6-5).

Ranieri threw for 150 yards and two touchdowns, including a game-breaking 53-yarder to Kenny Shaw in the third quarter

Durant's defense, which allowed 12.9 points a game on the season, forced three turnovers off fumbles, including one Shane McDougall recovered for a score in the second quarter. Defense saved the Panthers, who struggled to get going on offense due to 13 penalties for 115 yards and poor protection for Ranieri.
