The South Dade Immortals entered Saturday’s game at Harris Field looking to knock off the unbeaten Pompano Beach Outlaws to take control of the FCFL South Division.

Even though they trailed by a game in the standings, the Immortals did not feel like underdogs.

It showed.

Jarvon Anderson ran two scores and threw for another to help lead the Immortals to a 30-12 win over the Outlaws in a game they never trailed.

“We’re the top dogs right now,” Anderson said. “We kind of got a target on our back right now. We’ve just got to keep the gas going.”

The Immortals (5-1) jumped to a 16-0 lead early in the second quarter behind two short rushing touchdowns by Anderson, who finished with 97 yards on nine carries to go with 139 yards in the air on 9-of-28 passing with an interception.

“It was very important to get the momentum first and get those two touchdowns,” Anderson said. “It really helped us out a lot. We helped our defense out by putting points on the board and our defense got stops.”

The Outlaws (5-1) finally got on the scoreboard in the third quarter cutting the deficit to 16-6, but it was as close as they would get in the second half.

“They had something to prove and we had something to prove,” head coach Willie Cooper said. “We wanted to be the number one team for the playoffs to we have home-field advantage.”

The Immortals were confident they could unseat the Outlaws.

“We weren’t really the underdogs because they hadn’t really played anybody,” Anderson said. “We came in with good confidence.”

Anderson threw a 27-yard touchdown pass to Detrious Almon and Simeon Moore added a 14-yard touchdown run in the second half to cap the scoring.

“We played pretty good,” Anderson said. “We could have had more points on the board, but it was a good overall win for us.”

Seven different receivers caught passes from Anderson including Donald Brooks, who hauled in a 51-yarder. Almon (2 for 30), K.J. Williams (2-24), Tarviant Williams (1-14), Kentron Williams (1-13), Tim Moore (1-5), and Simeon Moore (1-2) also had receptions.

Anderson led the ground attack with Edner Bruno adding 44 yards on seven carries, Simeon Moore had 32 yards on four carries, Kentron Williams had 15 yards on eight carries, and Tarviant Williams had an eight-yard rush.

Joseph Hammett and Demarkis Johnson recorded interceptions on defense.

“I think the defense did pretty good,” Cooper said. “They bent, but did not break.”
