Spring game is score­less

Orlando Sentinel - - VARSITY / FOR THE RECORD -

Take your pick in try­ing to ex­plain Thurs­day night’s score­less spring foot­ball game be­tween peren­nial Cen­tral Florida pow­ers Osce­ola and Bishop Moore.

It might have been due to two in­ex­pe­ri­enced of­fenses that lost nu­mer­ous key play­ers to grad­u­a­tion, or could have been caused by two re­ally good de­fenses. Or maybe you blame it on a week’s worth of rains that made the field a messy quag­mire.

What­ever the rea­son, the Kow­boys and Hor­nets wrapped up spring drills by play­ing to a 0-0 tie.

“I can’t re­mem­ber be­ing in­volved in a 0-0 game, but cer­tainly would not fault our ef­fort,” Bishop Moore coach

said. “We just could not fin­ish our op­por­tu­ni­ties and that had a lot to do with the de­fense we were fac­ing.”

Weather con­di­tions prompted the Florida High School Ath­letic As­so­ci­a­tion to again post­pone the start of its state soft­ball tour­na­ment in Vero Beach — four days af­ter it re­vised the sched­ule for an event that orig­i­nally was to be­gin two days ago.

West Or­ange and Tim­ber Creek in Class 9A and Hagerty in 8A are the area pro­grams af­fected. Semi­fi­nal games for 5A through 9A have been shifted from Satur­day to Tues­day, with fi­nals now set for Wed­nes­day at Historic Dodger­town in Vero Beach.

Class 1A-4A semi­fi­nals and fi­nals, which in­clude area pro­grams Montverde Academy and Cor­ner­stone Char­ter, re­main sched­uled for Mon­day and Tues­day.
