  • 6:19 pm Wednesday, October 27th, 2010 by Jeff Greer

We know there’s still three weeks of season–and plenty of playoffs–left before we can officially pick a winner.

Fort Pierce Central up, Atlantic down in new football rankings

  • 4:25 pm Monday, October 25th, 2010 by Jeff Greer

Friday night’s District 8-6A showdown between Seminole Ridge and Atlantic came down to the final minute. In a game that lived up to its pre-game hype, Atlantic drove down to the Seminole Ridge 18-yard line before turning the ball over on downs. Seminole Ridge held on to win 28-21.

The win put Seminole Ridge (7-0, 3-0 in 8-6A) in the fast lane to a district title. If the Hawks beat Park Vista (5-2, 1-1 in 8-6A), Seminole Ridge will win its first-ever district title. That’s a testament to how good Seminole Ridge is this year.

And that’s why we kept Atlantic in this week’s rankings (and didn’t drop the Eagles too much). The Eagles now get Boca Raton and Palm Beach Central to finish the season. Beating Park Vista means that Atlantic just needs to win its other two district games and hope that Ridge upends Vista.
