Tonight's Hillsborough Prep Matchups


Published:   |   Updated: October 11, 2013 at 07:14 AM

Leto (0-6, 0-5) at Armwood (5-0, 4-0): Hawks continue to rise in state polls. Most recently, No.11 in FlaVarsity.com statewide poll and No.3 in Class 6A poll.

Blake (2-4) at Middleton (0-5): Ten-year anniversary of renewed rivalry between varsity programs with historic connections. Blake has won last two meetings, but Middleton owns renewed series lead at 6-3.

Bloomingdale (3-2) at East Bay (4-2): Both teams coming off upset wins. Win or lose, both programs are positioning themselves to make the playoffs.

Chamberlain (4-2, 4-0) at Hillsborough (3-2, 3-2): King battled Hillsborough down to the wire last week. Chamberlain, which last defeated the Terriers in 2008, might do the same, if doesn't pull out the win.

Durant (1-5) at Newsome (3-3): Rematch of last year's Class 7A region semifinal, which Newsome won to hand the Cougars their first defeat of the season. Revenge, rivalry and proximity, all rolled into one.

Lennard (0-6, 0-5) at Jefferson (4-1, 3-1): Deiondre Porter has been putting up some huge numbers this season, but the Dragons defense has been just as productive.

King (4-2, 2-2) at Robinson (2-4, 2-3): King almost defeated Hillsborough last week, while the Knights narrowly defeated Lennard. With two similar teams, expect a close one at Robinson.

Sickles (5-0) at Plant (4-1-1): Though Sickles is the higher-ranked team in local and state polls, it appears it is still the underdog. The teams last met in 2006, with Plant winning 68-7.

Tampa Bay Tech (4-1) at Plant City (4-1): TBT's Deon Thompson had five touchdowns last week against Steinbrenner. How he fares against the Raiders defensive line with Sedrick King should be interesting.

Riverview (2-3) at Strawberry Crest (4-2): Riverview allowed 47 points to Plant last week, while the Chargers were held to one offensive score, a field goal late in the fourth quarter against Durant.

Wharton (5-1) at Steinbrenner (1-4): Wharton sits atop the district standings in 8A and can't afford to lose momentum after last week's close win against Newsome.

Ocala Trinity Catholic (4-2) at Jesuit (3-3): Kevin Newman led Jesuit with four first-half touchdowns last week against Spoto. Trinity Catholic, however, is coming off a 35-0 shutout of Tallahassee Maclay.

Carrollwood Day (3-3) at Keswick Christian (0-5): The Patriots handed Canterbury its first loss of the season, led by Willie Parker's 205 rushing yards and three touchdowns.

Winter Park International Community (4-1, 4-0 ) at Seffner Christian (5-0, 5-0): Both teams are undefeated in the Sunshine State Athletic Conference standings. International Community has allowed the fewest points in the conference, while the Crusaders are the highest-scoring team.
