High School

Football

Westside 33, Perry 13

          The Seminoles jumped out to a 14-3 first quarter lead, Perry closed to within eight by halftime, but Westside slowly eased away in the second half for the non-region win. Perry was threatening, but fumbled inside the 5. A few plays later, the Panthers sacked quarterback Victor Dixon for a safety, and then scored on their next possession to pull within 21-13. But the Panthers couldn’t get anything going consistently in the second half, and the Seminoles were just steady enough on both sides. Dixon’s short keeper with 4:01 left in the third quarter put the Seminoles up by two scores, and they added one in the final minutes of the fourth quarter.
