Tonight’s Pinellas Prep Matchups

Published:

Countryside (6-2) at Pinellas Park (7-1): Pinellas Park’s vaunted Wing-T attack was kept in check in last week’s loss to East Lake, which was the first loss of the season for the Patriots. Now a winner-takes-all matchup takes place, as Countryside and Pinellas Park will battle for the district runner-up spot in Class 7A-District 9. The Patriots will bring one of the area’s best rushing games, as they’ve rushed for an average of 396 yards a game.

Northside Christian (3-5) at Carrollwood Day School: Mike Alstott’s bunch has been playing well of late, narrowly losing, 29-22, to Canterbury last week.

Shorecrest Prep (2-5) at Admiral Farragut (4-3): The Bluejackets must win against the Chargers to keep pace in 3A-5.

Keswick Christian (0-9) at Bradenton Christian (4-5): The Crusaders will look to conclude their 2013 season on a positive note.

Boca Ciega (2-6) at Tarpon Springs (4-4): A win will secure a spot in the postseason for the Spongers.

Northeast (1-7) at East Lake (8-0): After picking up its first win of the season last week vs. Clearwater, Northeast now gets Pinellas’ No. 1 team in East Lake.

Palm Harbor University (4-4) at Bradenton Manatee (9-0): The titanic task of competing with Manatee falls into the lap of Palm Harbor. Manatee is coming off a 28-24 victory over University.

Dixie Hollins (2-6) at Largo (6-2): The Packers lost on the road for the first time this season in last week’s 28-14 loss to Lakeland Lake Gibson.

Lakewood (6-2) at Jacksonville Raines (6-2): The Vikings have a potent offense, averaging 138 yards through the air and 200 on the ground.

Clearwater (0-8) at Seminole (2-7): Seminole looks to end Chris Miller’s first season as coach with the team’s third victory.

Canterbury (7-2) at Cambridge (4-4): A Canterbury win, coupled with a Northside Christian victory against Carrollwood Day, makes the Class 2A-District 5 playoff picture very interesting.

Gibbs (3-5) at Dunedin (1-7): A chance to win three games in a row lies in front of the Gladiators if they can defeat the Falcons.

Venice (6-2) at Osceola (6-3): In the Warriors’ last game of the season, they will have an opportunity to upset Venice and snatch a postseason berth in Class 6A-District 7.

St. Petersburg (6-2) at Sarasota Riverview (5-2): Winner of this contest will clinch the runner-up spot in Class 8A-District 7.
