Week 1 saw some big debuts, close losses and even an overtime game.
Merritt Island, Heritage and Titusville were impressive Friday night, lighting up the scoreboard.
Merritt Island turned a 13-0 halftime lead into a 41-3 victory. Heritage shut out Space Coast behind Josh Gaines’ big night (three touchdowns) and Titusville gave new head coach Andy Price a lot to smile about, winning 42-0 over Pine Ridge.
Melbourne edged Satellite in overtime behind Carson Jackson’s 8-yard run and Pat Brush’s kick was good. Satellite’s Tyler Allen caught a touchdown to answer, but the Scorpions went for the two-point conversion and were stopped, giving the Bulldogs the win.
Cocoa lost to St. Joseph’s Pa. in a game played at Disney’s Wide World of Sports and Bayside fell to Jacksonville Bolles in a tight game.
