Norland-Central Highlight Today’s Region Finals

They have waited nearly six weeks for this district rematch to unfold – and now the wait is over.

Tonight (7:30), perhaps one of the biggest games in the state of Florida in the Region Finals will take place at Traz Powell Stadium.

The day after Thanksgiving, south Florida will indeed jump into the spotlight when two of the best teams will collide – and this time – winner will take all and move on to the 2M state semifinals.

In the first meeting, No. 2 Miami Central (8-3) and head coach Jube Joseph ran out to a 20-0 halftime lead, only to see that advantage evaporate and lose. That was six weeks ago, and in that time the Rockets blasted off, outscoring the opposition, 219-25.

This team is going for a fifth straight state championship, which would be an amazing accomplishment.

For the No. 1 Vikings (12-0), it has been a season of domination as head coach Daryle Heidelburg and his team has scored over 50 points seven times on the way to a 547-point season.
