It hasn't been an easy year for Matanzas football.

But the lasting memory the Pirates will take into the offseason will be a 48-10 victory over Winter Springs in the final game of the year.

"With everything that went on, it seems like the world was against them the last half of the season," Matanzas coach Matt Forrest said. "It felt good watching them get a win on the road, getting a big win heading into the 2023 offseason."
