Dwyer wins State Championship; pulls off first ever undefeated season

By John Evenson

Orlando- The Dwyer football team completed a perfect 15-0 season on Friday night in style, by winning the Class 7A State championship. While the Panthers and their opponent Niceville went back and forth with touchdown scores on their first six possessions on the night, it was the Dwyer offense keeping their foot on the gas en route to a 55-39 win, their second State title in school history.

Alonzo Smith rushed for 219 yards and two touchdowns, while quarterback Daniel Parr threw for three touchdowns and ran in another.

"It means so much to me," said an excited Parr after the game, "to my teammates, my coaches. Everything we worked for up until this point was for this game, and I just thank god we got it."

It's the second time Dwyer has beaten Niceville to win a State championship, having beat them 42-14 in 2009 for their first title. The celebration came with an extra special feeling of being the only undefeated team in school history.

"It's the best feeling in the World," says head coach Jack Daniels.

SAN FRANCISCO (AP) -- Game 3 of the World Series is set for tonight in San Francisco with the Royals and Giants tied at one-all after a split in KC. While the Royals send Jeremy Guthrie to the hill, the Giants go with Tim Hudson, who at age 39 makes it to baseball's biggest stage for the first time. That's after 16 years, 214 regular-season wins and seven failed trips to the postseason.

Guthrie has also had a long wait just to get to the playoffs. He made his first postseason appearance at age 35 when he allowed one run in five innings of a no-decision against Baltimore in Game 3 of the ALCS. That start is Guthrie's only outing the past four weeks; he did not pitch in the division series sweep against the Angels.

If neither team sweeps the three games in San Francisco, the series will shift back to Kansas City for Game 6 next Tuesday.


BERKELEY, Calif. (AP) -- There's a top-25 college football game tonight with number-six Oregon at California. The 6-1 Ducks have won their last two. They are also in first place in the Pac-12 North and positioned to make a serious run at their first conference title since 2011. The Bears are 4-3.


Five games on the way

ANAHEIM (AP) - There are five games on the NHL schedule including Columbus at Anaheim. The Ducks are off to a great start with six wins in their first seven games. The Blue Jackets are 3-2.

The only team without a win is Carolina. The Hurricanes limp into Edmonton with a 0-4-2 mark. The Oilers have two wins in seven games so far. The rest of the lineup has Dallas at New Jersey, Winnipeg home to Tampa Bay and Vancouver on the road at Colorado.
