DOVER — Windermere Prep topped Seffner Christian 17-14 at Strawberry Crest on a 27-yard field goal with seven seconds to play Friday.
Seffner Christian's defense was good when it needed to be, stopping the Lakers on key fourth-down plays and a blocked field goal that would have given Windermere the lead late in the game.
A 26-yard touchdown pass from Skylar Clark to Robbie Shell gave Seffner a 14-7 lead in the fourth quarter. But the Lakers capitalized on two Seffner penalties, breaking off a 51-yard touchdown by running back Daniel Decembre to tie. One possession later Seffner failed to convert a fourth and 1 that gave the Lakers one final chance.
Marcus Richardson finished with 78 yards on 12 carries for Seffner Christian. Seth Lewis also scored on a 4-yard run in the third quarter.
