Flora, 182-164, ran 10 more plays, and held a 4 minute time of possession advantage. "We were trying to kick (their edge defenders) out a little bit, but the problem was we couldn't get rid of those inside linebackers," Dreher coach Bill Bacon said. "Just as we were about to break it, those inside linebackers were coming Out and mak- ing some good hits." Leonard Kennedy led Dreher with 96 yards rushing on 15 carries. Jackson Edwards (44), Sheldon Van Dyke (30), and Devante Sims (35) recorded at least eight carries.
