HIALEAH, FL – It took a couple extra days, but ASA Miami earned its fifth victory of the 2019 season.
Despite their best attempts to play a game over the weekend (Oct. 19-20), the Silver Storm was forced to play their seventh game of the season on Wednesday night under the lights of Ted Hendricks Stadium, cruising to a 43-0 win over Miami Postgraduate Preparatory Academy.
Freshman quarterback Jaeze Tracey scored four total touchdowns (three passing and one rushing) while the Silver Storm defense ran roughshod over the Eagles' offense – yielding negative (-2) of total offense – in the midweek game.
ASA Miami (5-2) – which will host Advance Postgraduate Preparatory this coming Sunday (Oct. 27) at 1 p.m. – was clearly the superior team. The Silver Storm offense had just six incomplete passes and only two runs that went for negative yardage.
In three quarters of action, Tracey finished 9-of-13 for 164 yards. His lone carry was a 1-yard scoring plunge that gave ASA Miami a 21-0 lead midway through the second quarter.
Justin McGriff, Christian Simon, and Doug Washington were on the receiving ends of Tracey's touchdown tosses – going for 30, 4, and 35 yards respectively. McGriff finished with a game-high 46 receiving yards while Biran Durr and Washington were right behind with 35 yards each.
Sophomore running back Evan Burgess finished 71 yards on just six carries, while also putting ASA Miami ahead 28-0 just before halftime with a 4-yard scurry into the end zone.
The Silver Storm's defense racked up five sacks Wednesday, three of which coming from sophomore defensive lineman Roshard Anderson. Devonte Williams and Jeremy Hudson each also recorded a sack while Trayvon McClary nabbed an interception and Latrell Mignott recorded a team-high five total tackles.
Given the expected dominant performance against a lesser team, ASA Miami head coach Roosevelt Williams kept his postgame message fairly succinct.
"We did what we expected to do," Williams said. "Nothing really to get too excited about. Glad we got through the game without any injuries. Even though making up this game on [Wednesday] puts us in position to have a short turnaround going into this weekend, we can get back to work and continue our quest to earn a bowl game bid."
