Huge Football Friday In South Florida

No matter what week of the football season it is, you can guarantee that there will be a huge matchup in Miami-Dade and Broward Counties.

Spotlight games that not only affect the area, state and region, but games that peg the meter at the national level.

With district games starting to take place, there are some contests that will grab the attention of the fans, players and administration.

While there is a full slate of games scheduled for this Friday night, we have picked our three to keep an eye on:

No. 11 Coconut Creek at No. 10 Pompano Beach Blanche Ely, 7. This is a game that everyone has been pointing to since the schedules were made.

Coach Mike Bailey’s team, winners of 13 straight regular season games, playing host to a heated rival in easily one of the showcase games of the week.

Coach Johnnie Sloan and his Cougars have had a much tougher schedule, coming off a complete domination of Plantation. They have a belief that this is their year.

Two teams that are among the best in south Florida squaring off in a game that will certainly tell a lot.

No. 18 Miami Dr. Krop at No. 17 Hollywood South Broward, 7. While it’s only the fifth week of the season, here is a game that the winner will have a major advantage in the race for a district title and high playoff seed.

Coach Tom Caporale and his Lightning have answered almost every bell and are ready for his football team to start getting the attention they deserve. They are talented and loaded with quality playmakers.

Charles McCrae and the Bulldogs are looking to get back into the playoffs this season with a team that has plenty of talent and playmakers all over the field.

The Lighting won the district last year and will be ready to defend the title on the road, but the obstacle is real and undefeated.

Port St. Lucie Treasure Coast at No. 4 Fort Lauderdale St. Thomas Aquinas, 7. Another home game for the Raiders against a team that many have very little clue about – much like Cocoa.

The Titans and head coach Irvin Jones come to town loaded with talent and size, losing last season in Port St. Lucie to the Raiders, 21-7. They come into tonight’s game unbeaten.

Roger Harriott’s team has rebounded from an opening day loss to California power St. John Bosco. They are loaded with talent, but still looking for some new faces to step up.

St. Thomas Aquinas cannot afford to take this team lightly and they know that after playing them last year. Remember, Treasure Coast has played a really tough schedule so far an will be ready to play.

This is one of the state’s key matchups this season and many will be watching.
