The Boone varsity fooball team, behind a 196-yard, 4 touchdown performance from senior running back Dai One Creal, defeated Edgewater 35-27 to retain the barrel. The game was the 66th time the two teams have faced each other, with the Braves taking 4 of the past 5 contests.
With just over a minute to play in the game and down 27-21, quarterback Jaxsen Anagnostis completed a 4th down pass to wide reciever Gene Nobles who caught the 37-yarder and was downed at the three yard line. Creal scored his fourth TD of the game on the next play and Jonathan De Lucca converted the extra point for the lead.
Senior defensive back Jack Dixson then returned an interception for a touchdown on the Eagle's next possession for the final points of the game. 
Jacob Maddux recorded two interceptions and Devonte Booker led the team with 12 tackles. Senior defensive end CJ Reeves had two sacks in the final minute to perserve the victory. Defensive tackle Nyquan Baker added 7 tackles (3 for loss) and Jay Swegheimer had 5 tackles with 2 coming for losses.
With the victory and based on the new playoff system initiated by the FHSAA, Boone is the #6 seed in Region 1. The Braves will now travel to Flagler Palm Coast High School for a first round matchup at 7:30 this Friday. Tickets are $8.
