Northeast 35, Osceola 28

ST. PETERSBURG — One is steady. The other is flashy.

Senior running back Daryl Copeland (113 yards, three touchdowns) and senior receiver Hank White (75-yard punt return) led host Northeast past Osceola.

"They play hard, and they play like they never know what the score is," Northeast coach Jay Austin said. "Hank's been playing varsity since the ninth grade, and he continually makes circus catches and big plays. Daryl just takes the ball and pounds it the entire game."

After Osceola's Edwin McKinney (139 yards) gave the Warriors a surprising 14-0 lead with TD runs of 41 yards and 55 yards, Copeland answered with a 45-yarder.

Later, the Vikings blocked a punt, and Copeland scored three plays later as Northeast was on its way to scoring 28 straight points.
