Northwestern Bulls: 'We're not done yet'

A ''rebuilding'' season became a historic season for Miami Northwestern and Miami-Dade County.
And unlike every playoff round the past three weeks, the Bulls didn't allow Miramar or its star quarterback Eugene Smith any late-game heroics.
Northwestern used a time-consuming running game that limited Miramar to 22 offensive plays in the first half as they amassed a comfortable lead and beat the Patriots 42-23 in a Class 6A state semifinal at Lockhart Stadium.
An estimated crowd of 14,000 watched the Bulls become the first Dade team in the playoff era to advance to three consecutive state championship games.
Northwestern (13-1), winners of 43 of its past 44 games, will try to win its third consecutive state championship when it takes on Sanford Seminole (12-2) next Saturday at the Citrus Bowl in Orlando at 7 p.m. Seminole beat Orlando Boone 21-17 on Friday to advance to its first state championship game.
