Central beats Northwestern after thrilling fourth quarter

A slow start led to an exhilarating finale, and after four lead changes in the fourth quarter, Central finally beat Northwestern.


After spending the whole game running through Miami Northwestern's defense, Miami Central asked a tired Devonta Freeman to stay on the field and keep an eye on quarterback Teddy Bridgewater for the final two plays.

Freeman didn't have to make the final stop on Bridgewater's last-second heave to the end zone.

Charles Gaines stepped in front of the pass intended for Eli Rogers in the end zone and knocked it down, sealing the Rockets' thrilling 25-22 victory Friday night at FIU Stadium.

Central (5-1, 3-0 District 13-6A), ranked No. 2 in the state Class 6A poll, won its second game in a row against No. 1 Northwestern (4-1, 2-1).
