Week 4 Marquee Match ups

1.  No 3 Palm Harbor vs No 9 Tarpon Springs

This one could be an instant classic!

Both teams are entering this week's "Clash of the Coast" with big victories behind them. The stakes are high as both teams are eager to build momentum heading into the mid-season break. With a perfect 3-0 record, PHU is determined to maintain their winning streak. Meanwhile, Tarpon Springs, who is also undefeated at 2-0, is aiming to establish themselves as a formidable opponent. This should be one for the ages.

Perdiction: Tarpon Springs 22 Palm Harbor 18

2. No. 1 CCC vs No. 5 Clearwater

Once teammates and now the matchup that may decide the outcome of the game!

 Friday, a highly anticipated game will showcase multiple D1 prospects. Clearwater is determined to prove themselves as a legitimate team to the rest of Pinellas County. Although the Tornados have secured two noteworthy victories, they have yet to face teams of CCC's caliber. The Mauraders possess exceptional talent on both offense and defense and are widely considered the most skilled team in the county. The outcome of Friday's game will determine the ultimate champion in Clearwater

Perdiction: CCC 35 Clearwater 28

3. Cardinal Gibbons vs No 6 Northeast (Thurs)

UNC Commit QB Micheal Merdinger leads the Chiefs over No 5 Northeast 38-16

Cardinal Gibbons will be traveling to St. Pete to face off against the Vikings, who are known for their stingy defense. Although the Vikings had a remarkable win last week, they will be facing a formidable opponent in Cardinal Gibbons Chiefs (Ft.Lauderdale). QB Micheal Merdinger, who is committed to UNC, has been the driving force behind the Chiefs' success. If the Vikings can contain Merdinger, they could potentially stay in the game and keep it competitive.

* Update: Cardinal Gibbons overcame early mistakes to secure a much-needed win against the Vikings.

Final: Cardinal Gibbons 38 Northeast 16
