Northside Christian 40, Deerfield Beach Zion Lutheran 0

ST. PETERSBURG — A festive homecoming crowd watched Northside Christian blank Zion Lutheran Christian.

Chris Culbreth had three of the Mustangs' six rushing TDs, while racking up 191 yards on 13 carries.

The Lions looked like they would strike first on the opening drive of the game, but a 48-yard run ended with a fumble inside the Mustangs' 5-yard line, which they recovered in the end zone. On the ensuing possession, Culbreth capped a seven-play drive with a 5-yard run for the game's first points. He soon followed with an 81-yard burst up the middle of the field and into the end zone after another Lions fumble deep in Mustangs territory.

Northside's stingy defense frustrated the Lions, intercepting them five times. The Mustangs offense converted two of those picks into touchdowns.
