Friday's matchups

All games at 7:30 unless noted.

Land O'Lakes (3-2) at Tarpon Springs (4-0)

The Gators need this game to keep their 11-year playoff streak alive. The Spongers need to stay on top in the district.

Burns: Tarpon Springs

Putnam: Tarpon Springs

Indian Rocks Christian (5-0) at Shorecrest (3-2)

The Chargers won five straight in this series before the Golden Eagles won last year. Can IRC make it two in a row?

Burns: IRC

Putnam: IRC

St. Petersburg (3-2) at Gibbs (3-2)

With a loss to Largo, the Green Devils need this game to stay in the district race. They'll have to kick away from the Gladiators kick returners, who can score.

Burns: St. Petersburg

Putnam: St. Petersburg

Keswick (2-3) at Calvary Christian (2-2)

After starting 0-3, the Crusaders have won two straight and a win tonight would put them in good position for a playoff berth.

Burns: Calvary

Putnam: Keswick

Clearwater (1-4) at Dunedin (3-2)

The Falcons need to rebound after losing two straight. Playing the Tornadoes should be the perfect tonic.

Burns: Dunedin

Putnam: Dunedin

Northeast (1-3) at Bogie (1-3)

Last year, both teams were undefeated entering this game. This year, both need a win to keep playoff hopes alive.

Burns: Bogie

Putnam: Northeast

Clearwater Central Catholic (3-2) at Berkeley Prep (3-1)

The Marauders get a big test against a Buaccaneers team that is off to its best start in years.

Countryside (3-2) at Palm Harbor University (2-2)

The Cougars are undefeated in the district, but they cannot look past the Hurricanes, who have won two straight.

Putnam: Countryside

Dixie Hollins (2-3) at Seminole (3-2)

The Warhawks have tripled their win total from last season and are undefeated in the district.

Burns: Seminole

Putnam: Dixie Hollins

Tampa Catholic (2-2) at St. Petersburg Catholic (0-5)

The Barons played their best game of the season last week. They'll need the same kind of performance to stay competitive with the defending state finalist Crusaders.

Burns: TC

Putnam: TC

Admiral Farragut (1-3) at Northside Christian (0-5)

After a brutal early-season schedule, the Mustangs return home against a team they have beaten three out of the past four years.

Mismatch alert! The Packers have allowed 23 points all season. The Patriots have scored 18.

Putnam: Largo

Lakewood (3-1) at Bradenton Bayshore (1-3)

The Spartans can put themselves in the driver's seat for a playoff berth with a win.

Burns: Lakewood

Putnam: Lakewood

Osceola (0-5) at Bradenton Southeast (3-1)

The Warriors are improving on offense, but it probably will not be enough to knock off the Seminoles.

Burns: Southeast

Putnam: Southeast
