St. Thomas holds on for their first victory over rival Miramar in 4 years, winning the game 20-12.
In less than two weeks, the St. Thomas Aquinas football team went from being a national-championship contender to facing a once-unthinkable, two-game losing streak. But on Saturday night against its toughest Broward County foe the past three years, the Raiders might have gotten their season back on track.
Aquinas blocked two punts and its defense recorded a key interception by Great American Rivaly MVP LB Velvario Faulkner, which led to Aquinas junior running back Devonta’e Henry Cole sweeping around to the left side for a 7-yard touchdown run to put Aquinas ahead 20-12 late in the fourth quarter. Miramar had won the previous three years by a combined 10 points, including twice in overtime, and was trying to become the first public school to beat St. Thomas four consecutive times in the regular season since Dillard (1987-90) Instead, it turned into a fantastic finish for St. Thomas, which scored 13 unanswered in the final eight minutes to beat Miramar 20-12 Saturday night on the Patriots’ home field.
