Football team wins district title in shootout over Northside Christian


By Chris McCully, BayNews9 Brighthouse Sports Networks

Admiral Farragut clinched their first district title since 2002 and ended Northside Christian’s quest for a perfect season with a 47-32 victory at Brandes-Russell Field on a special Thursday night edition of the Game of the Week.

The Blue Jackets extended their winning streak to eight games, and snapped the Mustangs 14-game regular season winning streak, as Admiral Farragut will now host a first-round playoff game against either Cambridge Christian or Carrollwood Day.

Junior QB Austyn Causey earned Player of the Game honors, throwing for a season-best 328 yards and five TD.  His TD passes went to four different receivers.  Junior Matthew Landers finished with the best line of the night at five receptions for 110 yards and two TD, while Donnie Crum, Dontell Green and Zion Roland all had TD receptions as well.

O’shon Allen added 85 rushing yards (all in the second half) and LB Jaylen Bowden’s 77-yd fumble return for a TD gave Admiral Farragut a two-TD lead late in the third quarter.

The connection between Griffin Alstott and Derrick Wright provided several big plays for the Mustangs.  Alstott finished with 281 passing yards, while Wright had 13 receptions for 188 yards.  Josh Snead rushed for 65 yards and two TD.

Admiral Farragut (8-1, 2-0) will host Bradenton Christian next week in their regular season finale, while Northside Christian (8-1, 1-1) will have an open week to prepare for their playoff game.  They’ll travel to the winner of Cambridge Christian and Carrollwood Day in two weeks.
