JACKSONVILLE, Fla. – Week 8 of the high school football season is in the books.

Here’s a glance at how our News4Jax Super 10 fared and the complete scoreboard from around the area, including a pair of Super 10 showdowns.

• David Kemp connected on a 54-yard field goal with 1 minute, 23 seconds to play to lift the Bears to a 30-27 win over No. 5 Oakleaf. Running back A.J. Jones III scored a 9-yard touchdown with 3:49 to play to tie things at 27-all.

Bartram followed by stopping Oakleaf’s fourth-and-7 conversion attempt and would set Kemp up for the game-winning try three plays later. He had field goals of 49 and 28 yards in the first half.

Oakleaf QB Walter Simmons III accounted for 296 yards and three touchdowns, including an 80-yard run.

• In another Super 10 matchup, No. 3 Trinity Christian turned in another defensive gem in topping Lee 14-6. The Conquerors were coming off of a shutout win on the road last week at nationally ranked Plantation American Heritage. Trinity QB JaCory Jordan had both Trinity touchdowns, one on the ground and the other on a pass to Runye Norton.
