Dixie Hollins 28, Osceola 7

SEMINOLE — A first-half defensive deadlock became a one-sided affair in the second half for Dixie Hollins.

The Rebels looked to get their ground game working early, running the ball on nine of their first 10 plays. Both defenses intercepted a pass and stopped the run and the game was scoreless at halftime.

Dixie Hollins got the scoring started in the third quarter when senior Josh Brown scampered 14 yards for a touchdown. Rasheem Smith added two scores, giving the Rebels a 21-0 lead. Dixie Hollins' defense continued to dominate, giving up only one touchdown, a 25-yard run by Osceola junior Edwin McKinney.

"Our defense won us this game," Dixie Hollins coach Mike Morey said.

The Rebels forced six turnovers, including an interception returned 80 yards for a touchdown.
