Tonight’s Pinellas Prep Football Matchups

Published:

Largo (3-1) at Lakewood (3-1): These teams haven’t faced each other since 2008, but this is a matchup that has been much anticipated. There will be plenty of Division I football prospects on the field and whoever wins this matchup could earn the label as the best team in Pinellas County. Both teams are coming off victories so watch out for a high-scoring affair.

Tarpon Springs (3-1) at East Lake (4-0): It will be standing room only at the Eagles Nest when the annual battle for Tarpon Springs ensues between the Spongers and Eagles. Tarpon Springs will need to stop Artavis Scott (212 yards) on the ground and George Campbell through the air if they look to win this matchup.

Admiral Farragut (1-2) at Carrollwood Day (2-2): Carrollwood Day racked up 60 points against Calvary Christian last Friday and coach Ryan Hearn and the Blue Jackets defense will look for a way to slow the Patriots offense.

Bradenton St. Stephen’s (1-3) at Canterbury (4-0): Canterbury’s 37-0 shutout of Bradenton Christian last week proved to be a statement made.

Boca Ciega (1-3) at St. Petersburg (2-1): Green Devils look to get back on track against Bogie, which allowed 34 points to Osceola last week.

Seminole (1-3) at Palm Harbor University (2-1): PHU quarterback Tyler Kaminski is off to a torrid start, completing 31 of 59 passes for 441 yards and four TDs.

Calvary Christian (3-1) at Bradenton Christian (3-1): Calvary Christian’s offense has been potent all season, averaging near 400 yards and scoring 20 total touchdowns.

Indian Rocks Christian (2-2) at Shorecrest Prep (1-2): The Golden Eagles have rushed for over 700 yards and scored nine TDs on the ground so far this season.

Orlando Faith Christian (1-2) at Keswick Christian (0-4): The Crusaders are searching for their first win after a 49-0 loss to Cambridge last week.

Dixie Hollins (2-1) at Pinellas Park (4-0): The Patriots are on fire to start the regular season behind a rushing attack that averages near 400 yards a game.

Dunedin (1-3) at Osceola (3-1): The Falcons were roughed up by the Spongers last week. Osceola likely improves to 4-1 at home.

Gibbs (0-4) at Clearwater (0-4): Tornadoes coach Donnie Abraham faces his old team and looks to pick up win No. 1.

Ocala Trinity Catholic (3-1) at Clearwater Central Catholic (3-1): In the best small-school matchup in Pinellas County, the Marauders can hand the Celtics their second loss in a row.
