Palm Beach Lakes bumps Sharks in region semifinals.

RIVERVIEW - Riverview had made a habit out of being a second-half team this season. Unfortunately for the Sharks, when they most needed a comeback performance, they couldn't deliver.
Instead, Palm Beach Lakes dominated late Friday night, breaking a halftime tie and going on for a 28-7 victory in the Class 6A, Region II semifinals.
Palm Beach Lakes (9-2) moves on to face Palm Beach Gardens in the region finals. Riverview, which advanced to the second round of the state playoffs in its first year at the Class 6A level, ends its season at 10-2.
"We played well but we lost to a better team," said Riverview coach Dan O'Regan. "I told the players to be proud. We showed up and played an almost error-free game. We just lost to a team a little bit better."
But Lakes and Riverview were fairly even after the first half.
A short scoring run early in the second quarter from Lakes quarterback Angelo Bellamy put the Rams on the board first. Riverview countered just before halftime when running back Antwain Powers broke loose for a 35-yard touchdown run. But that was practically all the rushing offense the Sharks could manage.
Powers and running mate Jahleel Addae were held in check. The duo, who each rushed for 1,000 yards in the regular season, combined for 97 against Lakes. Powers' 35-yard scoring run was by far the Sharks' biggest gain of the game. Riverview got just 135 yards rushing and completed only one pass for 20 yards.
Meanwhile, Lakes' offense get stronger in the second half. A muffed Riverview punt attempt early in the third quarter led to another short Bellamy touchdown run. The Rams continued to flex their offensive muscle one series later when tailback Corderro Drummond carried the ball six straight times, capping the drive with a 10-yard touchdown run.
"We've been a second-half team all season long," O'Regan said. "That was important to us. But they (Palm Beach Lakes) are such a strong team. They showed us where we need to be."
