Friday Games:

Palm Beach Lakes at Seminole Ridge

KOKELL: Palm Beach Lakes

Jensen Beach at Boynton Beach

KOKELL: Jensen Beach

EL: Jensen Beach

“Falcons bounce back after that frustrating loss last week.” -EL

Hollywood-Chaminade Madonna at Pahokee

John I. Leonard at Santaluces

Jupiter at Wellington

KOKELL: Jupiter

EL: Jupiter

“Any other year this might be a game of the week. But Winning Welly can seem to win often. Jupiter is a strong team and I don’t smell and upset.” -EL

“Wellington could play inspired ball for suspended coach Tom Abel or they could be missing there leader and it could get ugly against a well coached Jupiter team.” -Kokell


Village Academy at John Carroll

KOKELL: John Carroll

EL: John Carroll Catholic

“Savion Baker has another big performance getting at least 3 touchdowns and the Rams will force a running clock.” -EL

“Jay Allen…. That is all.” -Kokell


Suncoast at Coconut Creek

KOKELL: Coconut Creek

EL: Suncoast

“Another test for Coach Clark and the Chargers but I feel despite the travel they get the job done.” -EL

“Some games shouldn’t happen.” -Kokell


Olympic Heights at Blanche Ely

KOKELL: Blanche Ely

Clewiston at Cardinal Newman

KOKELL: Cardinal Newman

EL: Cardinal Newman

“Not much to say here except the night will end early.” -EL

“Clewiston already has more wins this year than last year. Unfortunately, that win total will stay at three. Newman wins on the CW Network’s Friday Night Rivals Game Of The Week. Tune in!” -Kokell


St. Andrews at Ransom Everglades

KOKELL: Ransom Everglades

EL: St. Andrew’s

“This isn’t going to be easy as the Raiders have only allowed one touchdown all season. But they also haven’t faced an all-around team like the Scot’s. Expect a close game but the Scot’s pull off a brave-hearted victory.” -EL
