Lakewood Ranch vs. Largo — Lakewood Ranch is coming off a 20-3 district victory over Dixie Hollins last week and will be amped up heading into tonight's heavily touted district contest. Both Lakewood and Largo remain undefeated in district play this season, and the Mustangs will be looking for something to prove after falling to the Packers last season. A win tonight over last year's district champion would set Lakewood up for a chance to win the Class 6A-District 7 title outright next week in its final district game versus Seminole Osceola.
Riverview at Sarasota — The two Sarasota County rivals will clash for the 54th time tonight. Both the Sailors (3-4) and the Rams (1-6) have had their share of disappoint this season. But when it comes to tonight's non-district rivalry game, records will be tossed aside. Bragging rights will be on the line. The Sailors won last year's meeting 36-0 and will look to quarterback Hunter DeWitt, who threw four touchdowns against the Rams last season, and playmakers Shawn Bane Jr. and Rod Tullis to give them some much-needed momentum heading into their final district game against national powerhouse Manatee next week.
ODA vs. First Baptist Academy — ODA is coming off a 52-16 rout of Southwest Florida Christian last week. The Thunder's playoff hopes will be on the line tonight when they host the Lions, who are undefeated this season. With a loss ODA, who had made consecutive trip to the playoffs from 2008-10, will be eliminated from playoff contention. Quarterback Evan Wilson, who threw for four touchdowns last week, will help determine whether the Thunder will be able to upset the Lions and remain in playoff contention.
Booker vs. Trinity Catholic — Booker returns to non-district action tonight after last week's 41-0 pounding of district opponent Avon Park. After losing the first four games of the season, the Tornadoes have rebounded to win their last three games, outscored their opponents 125-27.
