Southwest, underdogs in the game according to the Miami Herald, defeated District 13 favorite North Miami Beach, 30-14, Friday afternoon on the Southwest campus. Samuel Diaz recovered a fumble on the first NMB possession on the Chargers nine and, on the ensuing play, freshman sensation Andre Stringfield ran it in to give the Eagles (3-0) a 7-0 lead. Junior Te'Corey Tutson made it 14-0 with a 31-yard run in the second quarter. NMB (1-2) connected on a 28-yard pass late in the second quarter to cut the halftime margin to 14-6. In the third quarter, following an Amir Rivera interception, Tutson exploded for a 50-yard scoring run to make it 20-6. The Eagles followed with a kickoff that was fumbled and recovered by Oliver Guerra on the Chargers 16. Three plays later, Stringfield scored from 10 yards out to make it 27-6. Following a North Miami Beach punt, Southwest drove to the Chargers 40 where senior Antonio Garcia thrilled the crowd with a school-record 57-yard field goal. Shannon Sejeck of Coral Park set the county record of 61 yards in 1992. The state record is 65 yards by Tate's Graham Gano. Dirk Ronald Borgognone, who also kicked in the NFL, currently holds the record for the longest field goal ever kicked in the history of high school football, 68 yards. NMB scored a meaningless touchdown late in the game to pull within 16 points. The Eagles open district play next week against Varela.
