A stingy defense and big plays from Cameron ‘Squirt’ Hadley lifted Mainland past arch rival Seabreeze 27-9 at Municipal Stadium in Daytona last night.
The win put Mainland (6-3,. 3-1) in the playoffs as they are the district 9-6A runner up while Seabreeze’s (5-5, 2-2) season came to an end.
Hadley accounted 200 yards of offense and three touchdowns for Mainland. The Buccaneers defense also forced three turnovers resulting into 14 points.
Tre Rodriguez had a big game as usual running for 122 yards to lead the Sandcrabs.
Mainland will face Orlando Olympia next week in its regular season finale before traveling to Lakeland Lake Gibson for the first round of the playoffs on November 16.
