Boca Ciega (2-2, 1-0) at Sickles (4-1, 1-0): The Pirates, who have won two straight, will all but be assured of a postseason berth with a win over the Gryphons. The key for Boca Ciega will be stopping Sickles' ground game.
St. Petersburg (5-0, 1-0) at Gibbs (2-3, 0-0): The Green Devils have been rolling along through the first half of the season. But they could be tested against the Gladiators, who have scored 30 or more points in three straight games.
Burns: St. Petersburg
Niebuhr: St. Petersburg
Putnam: St. Petersburg
Countryside (4-1, 1-0) at Clearwater (4-1, 0-1): The Cougars try to bounce back after a tough loss to Lakewood. Countryside coach John Davis gets the perfect opponent, considering he has never lost to the Tornadoes.
East Lake (3-2, 1-0) at Palm Harbor University (2-3, 0-0): A matchup of teams headed in opposite directions. The Eagles have won three straight while the Hurricanes have lost two in a row.
Burns: East Lake

Leto (1-3, 0-1) at Largo (4-1, 1-0): After two hard games, the Packers get a break against the Falcons, who have struggled against athletic teams.
Clearwater Central Catholic (2-2, 0-1) at Indian Rocks Christian (4-1, 0-1): The Golden Eagles have been looking forward to this game to see how they stack up against one of the elite private school programs in the county.
Northeast (2-2, 0-1) at Seminole (1-4, 0-1): The Vikings can climb back into playoff contention with a win over the Warhawks, who have lost three straight.
Ridgewood (1-3, 0-1) at Tarpon Springs (4-1, 1-0): This game would have been a great one …two years ago. It won't be much of a contest tonight.
Canterbury (3-1) at Shorecrest (1-3): The Crusaders' great start could get even better with a win over a traditional small-school power.
Solid Rock Christian (0-1) at Northside Christian (3-2): The Mustangs schedule a team that is playing an abbreviated four-game schedule. Should be easy.
Blake (0-4, 0-1) at Osceola (0-5, 0-1): The Warriors showed some spunk in a close loss to Northeast last week and could have a chance against the winless Yellow Jackets.
Sarasota Riverview (3-1, 0-1) at Dunedin (0-5, 0-1): The bye week can't come soon enough for the beatup Falcons, who face another worthy opponent.
Burns: Sarasota Riverview
Niebuhr: Sarasota Riverview
Putnam: Sarasota Riverview
Dixie Hollins (0-5, 0-1) at Spoto (5-0, 1-0): The big story line is whether Spoto can post its fifth shutout of the season. It should happen.
St. Petersburg Catholic (4-1, 2-0) at Steinbrenner (1-1,1-1): The Barons get another first-year program as a tuneup to a big showdown with Robinson next week.
