Football: Armwood 35, Jefferson 21

SEFFNER — Armwood avoided an upset scare, defeating Jefferson 35-21 Friday night.

The Dragons racked up 213 first-half yards to take a 21-7 lead into halftime. Jefferson quarterback Deiondre Porter threw for two TDs of 29 and 31 yards, respectively.

The second half was all Armwood. Linebacker Antonio McCullough recovered a fumble and scored on a three-yard TD to give the Hawks needed momentum.

The Hawks defense forced a fumble and intercepted Porter twice as the Dragons were held to 74 total yards in the second half.

"This win pulled us together as a team," said Armwood coach Sean Callahan. "We had the chance to show people we could do something special tonight and we did just that in the second half."
