Winter Park tosses East Ridge aside in 8A football

Ayron Rodriguez ran for 86 yards and two touchdowns, and Jaden Machules passed for 151 yards and another score Friday to guide host Winter Park past East Ridge 42-6 in a Class 8A, Region 2 play-in game.

Winter Park (8-1), which missed out on the football playoffs last year, will host last year’s 8A state runner-up, Apopka (5-3) next Friday night.

Winter Park is No. 7 in the Sentinel Super 16 area rankings. Apopka, which had a bye this week, is No. 13.

Winter Park coach Tim Shifflet challenged his starters after last week’s win against Olympia.
