Booker vs. LaBelle — Booker got its first win of the season last week at Lake Placid. The Tornadoes return home tonight for their second district win of the season. Booker needs a win tonight to stay in the hunt for a possible playoff berth.
ODA vs. Imagine School of Naples — ODA returns home to face the Imagine School of Naples in a non-district game tonight. The Thunder, who is coming of its BYE week, will be searching for its first win at home this season.
Riverview at Southeast — Riverview travels to Southeast for a non-district game tonight. The Rams are coming off a 35-9 district loss to Palm Harbor University while the Seminoles are coming off a 23-7 victory over DeSoto County.

Sarasota at East Lake — Sarasota travels to East Lake for a non-district game tonight looking to rebound from last week's 48-12 loss to Venice.

Cardinal Mooney at St. Petersburg Classic — Cardinal Mooney returns to action tonight after a disappointing 20-17 district loss Oct. 8 at Lakeland Christian.
