Friday’s football: Detroit Osborn tops Delta Prep
Detroit Osborn pulled out some late-game heroics to defeat Detroit Delta Prep, 20-10, in their season opener Friday.
Quarterback Mandel Berriman attempted just three passes, but he made them count.
“(Berriman) had a crucial 65-yard touchdown pass to Raymon Gates,” coach Sid Wright said.
That long touchdown toss gave Osborn a lead that Delta Prep couldn’t overcome.
Berriman was 2-for-3 for 96 yards for Osborn (1-0), which was coming off a 2-7 campaign in 2015.
Darrick Jones rushed for 201 yards and two touchdowns on 14 carries for Osborn. Anton Brown had 13 tackles, a forced fumble and a recovery for Osborn, and Breontae May had an interception and four pass breakups.
Osborn hosts Detroit Denby next Friday and Delta Prep travels to Zeeland East.
