The Marjory Stoneman Douglas finished their first year under coach Keith Hindsley with their fourth win on Friday against Coral Glades.

The Eagles beat the Jaguars for the fifth straight season and finished the year with a record of 4-6. It was also the fifth consecutive year MSD beat Coral Glades, outscoring them 193-60.

“It’s nice to get a win over a cross-town team, taking the city title,” Hindsley said. ” We ended the season on a nice two-game winning streak. It’s great for our seniors to finish on a positive note!

Ryan Spallina opened the scoring with a touchdown to five MSD a 7-0 lead. The Eagles added a field goal before Corey Grant of Coral Glades cut the lead to 10-6. MSD, though, scored the following 14 points, with Spallina adding a 48-yard rushing touchdown and then connecting with Caleb Hensley for a passing touchdown to make it 24-6.

The Eagles will await to see if they will play in the postseason. If not, they will head into the 2024 season with a large number of players graduating but will get some reinforcements from the junior varsity team. The Eagles also had wins against Coral Springs High School, Boyd H Anderson, and Olympic Heights while losing to McArthur, Plantation, Jensen Beach, Monarch, Jupiter, and South Broward High School.

Coral Glades finished with one win, coming against J.P. Taravella under first-year Head Coach Rocco Casullo. With a young team, the Jaguars expect to compete for a District Championship next year.
