Good question.  Based upon records/rankings and the score differential in the Escambia game, the Escambia and Suwannee losses last night were arguably upsets.  

Lakeland beat Niceville in 2005 State Semis. Lake Gibson beat Navarre as well in 2016 I believe. Those are the only two off the top of my head I can think of.

In hindsight that Lake Gibson team probably should have been considered the favorite considering they ended Armwood run in the 6a North and then when they got to states they gave a very good Carol City team all they could handle

You are right about Lakeland.  And Lake Gibson actually did it twice.

2004 Lake Gibson at Pensacola 30-29

2016 Lake Gibson at Navarre 35-14

Are you in mourning?

Nah I just figured it would be a good addition as it would mean in 2020 so far the road team was 1-3 in these matchups

 

Even if Lee had gotten by Pace they would have lost at St Augustine this week so regardless of how we do against Mainland we weren't gonna get a rematch
