Donahue Wins State 8-Man Football Championship
Published on Sunday, 11 December 2016 03:22
The third time proved to be a charm for the Donahue Academy Shamrocks.
The Shamrocks held City of Life from Kissimee scoreless in the second half to win the Florida Christian Association of Private and Parochial Schools 8-man football championship game 40-13.
The win capped an undefeated season for the Shamrocks, who had seen two previous trips to the state champsionships end in defeat.
After a tight first half, City of Life marched down the field to start the third quarter but fumbled on the Shamrocks two yard line and when Sean Doman recovered for Donahue the momentum shifted. The Shamrocks marched downfield for the score, piling on 21 unanswered points in the half.
For City of Life, it marked just their second loss of the season -- both times at the hands of the Shamrocks.
