Ocean Lakes beat Cox in one of the closest games of the season on Monday, winning 31-14. This boosts their record to 5-0, tied with Landstown for first in the Beach.

The defense let up a touchdown on a punt return, but the Dolphins quickly tied the score with a touchdown from wide receiver Shawn Hamilton. Tavion Land also had three touchdowns, two of the receiving from quarterback Xander Jedlick.

The defense limited Virginia Tech commit, Tavion Robinson, to 72 passing yards and limited the running game to 40 yards.

The Dolphins’ next game is 2:00 against Landstown at home on Sept. 29.
