Not often in recent years has Boone’s defense stolen a game’s thunder, but stops were the story in the 63rd edition of Orlando’s longest-running high school football rivalry on Friday night. Edgewater still leads 43-18-2 in a rivalry that kicked off on Thanksgiving Eve of 1952 in the fall in which both schools opened.
Edgewater was the first to score on Friday night but missing their field goal kick. Boone answered right back scoring a touchdown both teams ended up tying up the game by the end of half-time. Boone broke a 14-14 tie on a field goal after forcing a three-and-out and bowed up again to stop Edgewater’s final three possessions in the red zone. The Braves intercepted three passes after halftime, two by senior safety, and pitched a second-half shutout to beat host Edgewater 24-14 in a final score.
