Manny Pineda returned the opening kickoff 65 yards for a touchdown to spark Southwest to a 48-6 victory over Braddock at Tropical Park. The victory clinches a playoff spot for the sixth consecutive year for the Eagles (7-1, 4-1). Four minutes later, JJ Jaramillo connected with Donovan Edouard for a 55-yard scoring pass to make it 13-0. Jaramillo's 3-yard touchdown run made it 20-0 with 4:02 left in the first period. Another Jaramillo TD pass made it 27-0 at the end of one period. Midway through the second period, Michael Mireles, normally a defensive lineman, caught a 3-yard Jaramillo toss to make it 34-0. With 1:35 remaining in the half, Te'Corey Tutson's five-yard run made it 41-0. Seconds later, Tutson's 30-yard run upped the margin to 48-0 at the half and gave him 115 first-half yards on 11 carries. The second half was played with a running clock due to the mercy rule and the Bulldogs (2-8, 2-3) finally got on the scoreboard with 5:54 left in the game on a 67-yard pick-six. The Eagles will face district 16 champion Southridge in the first round of the playoffs after next week's final regular season game against Coral Gables.
