This is not a "first," but it's worthy of note...7A TB Tech hanging 55 on Lakeland last night. Only Riverview and STA have ever done that. This was only the third time in playoff history that any team hung 42+ points on Lakeland.
7A Fleming Island is 0-4 in region finals, so will be looking for its first region title ever when it hosts Niceville next week.
7A Mitchell will be playing in its first region title game ever when it travels to Edgewater next week.
7A Venice has visited STA 3 times in the playoffs 3 of the past 4 years and lost by 20 or more points each time. They will try to break the streak when they visit Brain Piccolo Stadium next week.
7A Tampa Bay Tech will be hosting its first region title game ever and will be attempting to win its first region title ever. Bloomingdale will also be attempting to win its first region title ever, in only its second region title game appearance ever. So, someone is going to win a region title for the first time!
A good win for Apopka. I hope they don't look past Lake Mary which has a good passing offense. I agree that an Apopka - Seminole game in two weeks would be a great game with two very good QBs leading their teams. Either team would be a great representative for Central Florida going forward.
