With the crisp, cool conditions last night, the Bartow Yellow Jackets hosted the Winter Haven Blue Devils in a key district match-up. The final regular season home game for Bartow was a must-win and the fate was in their hands. The night was also senior night with the players on the squad honored before the game, also with band members and cheerleaders.

While Bartow had the ball first, it was Winter Haven who put the first points on the board. The Jackets’ drive gained only 5 yards and set up an Alex Montes punt. Winter Haven used a lot of running plays, highlighted by Adam Lane’s 23-yard sweep and used Bartow’s three offsides penalties to drive to the end zone. The scoring plunge came from Lane who carried from a yard out. The extra point put the Blue Devils on top 7-0 with four minutes gone.
