PANAMA CITY — Even when county rivals face off with district and playoff ramifications in play, it’s often bragging rights that still serve as the biggest motivator for coaches and players.

Mosley’s 28-7 win over Arnold at Tommy Oliver Stadium on Friday night put the Dolphins at 6-0 overall and in strong position atop the District 1-5A standings at 2-0. However, the Dolphins seemed more excited after the win about avenging a spring jamboree loss to the Marlins than moving one step closer to the postseason.

“It’s a big win because it’s a cross-town rivalry and it’s always fun to beat Arnold,” Mosley quarterback Michael Maddox said. “Our thing all week was that (the jamboree) was a half, but this was four quarters. They did beat us in the spring, but we knew we had something to prove and we proved it tonight.”

Maddox completed 11 of 15 passes for 201 yards and two touchdowns, with Daveno Ellington hauling in six passes for 133 yards and two scores, including a 65-yard touchdown on the first play of the game. Jacarri Greene and Don McKay combined for 158 yards and two touchdowns on the ground, and keyed a dominant second half effort in which Dolphins outgained the Marlins 225 yards to 24.
