Florida Christian defeated Southwest, 21-0, Wednesday night at Tropical Park. The pre-season game was delayed an hour because of lightning. Following an Eagles turnover, the Patriots scored on their first offensive play to take a 7-0 lead just 63 seconds into the contest. Southwest responded with its best drive of the evening; an 8-minute 48-yard possession that moved the ball from the Eagles 25-yard line to the Florida Christian 27 before turning the ball over on downs. The Patriots scored on an 11-yard pass late in the second quarter to take a 14-0 halftime lead. Florida Christian got the ball to start the third quarter, but the Southwest defense forced a 3-and-out and, after a punt, the Eagles started their possession at midfield. Quarterback Deandre Pique eluded a rush and found Angel Gonzalez downfield for a 37-yard completion to the Patriots ten. Two Julien Herrera runs moved the ball to the one, but runs on third and fourth downs came up short and FCS took over on downs. The final score came on a 3-yard run with 9:28 left in the game. The Southwest defense came up with three interceptions in the game, one by KC Vargas in the second quarter and two by Gonzalez in the final period.



Angel Gonzalez had 2 interceptions and 57 yards on two catches
