District tiebreaker fun Monday night in 12-5A and 7-2B 

By Matt Porter

For better or worse, here we are.

Tomorrow night, two districts will be settled. Districts 12-5A and 7-2B are going to the always-interesting three-team tiebreaker.

In 12-5A, John I. Leonard hosts Royal Palm Beach and Santaluces. At 7 p.m., Royal Palm Beach plays Santaluces for one 12-minute quarter. The winner plays John I. Leonard. The winner of that game is runner-up to Lake Worth, the district champ.

I’ll be there, and Jeff will be at Cardinal Newman for the 7-2B shootout. By virtue of Friday’s win over Inlet Grove, the Crusaders host North Broward Prep and Pine Crest.

The 7-2B scenario is similar. Pine Crest and North Broward play one quarter beginning at 7 p.m., and Newman gets the winner for one quarter. The winner is the district runner-up to Fort Lauderdale-University.

The FHSAA runs the show, and charges $6 at the door. Teams are allowed no more than 20 minutes for warm-up between quarters. Also, there are no marching bands allowed, so supply your own noise.

So, let’s turn it over to you. Who do you think wins? And is there a better way for the FHSAA to settle district ties?
