Osceola ekes out win over Northeast

SEMINOLE — What looked like an easy preseason victory for Osceola turned into a nail-biter down the stretch.

With their team trailing 30-7 late in the third quarter, Northeast running backs Tim Ashmun and Tavares Dunlap started a rally with touchdown runs of 25 and 55 yards respectively, cutting Osceola's lead to nine.

Viking quarterback Eli Pedigo completed a 46-yard touchdown, his second of the game, with one minute to play, bringing the Vikings within two. Northeast recovered the ensuing onside kick at Osceola's 40-yard line, but failed to advance against a tough Warrior pass defense. Pedigo finished 4-for-19 with 66 yards and two interceptions and two TDs.

Osceola got plenty of production on the ground. Marcus Sherrod gained 68 yards on nine carries, including two TDs. The JV squad, which took the field for the first quarter, added two rushing scores.
