GRENADA 12, LAKE CORMORANT 10: The Gators lost a chance to take control of the top spot in Region 1-5A when running back Jaiden Gray was tackled in the end zone with 4:35 left in the game. The safety points to Grenada gave the visiting Chargers a 12-10 victory in a battle between two of the top teams in the region. Lake Cormorant opened the game with a one-yard touchdown run by Jeremy Henderson midway through the second quarter. Kevin Frayle Ruiz added a 31-yard field goal in the third quarter that gave the Gators a 10-3 lead with 5:37 left in the third quarter. Grenada got back in the game with a 14-yard scoring pass to Amari Conley that tied the game at 10-10, a score that came on a short drive after a Gator fumble. In the final minute, a fourth down play by Grenada appeared to be short or close enough to require a measurement, but a first down was awarded and the Chargers ran out the clock.
