Week 5 — The Aftermath

Can’t watch NFL RedZone, as youngest boy isn’t allowing me to watch as he’s not getting any homework done. So we’ll check our picks and see how we did (21-5 going into Friday):

PROVIDENCE 62, Arlington County Day 26. I’m actually surprised ACD put up three-plus scores in this one. 22-5.

FIRST COAST 54, Atlantic Coast 17. Not surprised at how far FC is ahead of most local teams. 23-5.

MANDARIN 42, Baldwin 0. Big homecoming win for the Mustangs to improve to 4-1. 24-5.

Hilliard 35, BISHOP SNYDER 0. Ouch. That one hurts. I hadn’t seen much from Hilliard before this one. 24-6.

BOLLES 35, Vanguard 6. Bulldogs make statement win on the road that they’re not done yet. 25-6.

PALATKA 56, Bradford 13. Tornadoes can begin to think about wrestling now. 26-6.

WEST NASSAU 28, Chiefland 22. Warriors on the move back to 3-2 now. 27-6.

Oakleaf 35, CLAY 21. Knights rule Clay County and now, perhaps, I’m off the bandwagon, but it was a 7A team the Blue Devils faced. 27-7.

FLETCHER 56, Creekside 14. I saw this one coming. 28-7.

COLUMBIA 24, Englewood 0. Seems like the Tigers have taken their feet off the gas early each of the past two weeks. 29-7.

Menendez 42, FERNANDINA BEACH 7. St Johns seems to be ahead of Nassau, all things considered. Didn’t call that one right. 29-8.

ED WHITE 40, Orange Park 7. Raiders can start thinking about wrestling a bit more, too. 30-8.

LEE 43, Terry Parker 7. Who had Lee in the 5-0 pool? I know I didn’t. 31-8.

BISHOP KENNY 34, Paxon 12. We should have gone to this game Friday night. Perhaps the next Crusader home game. 32-8.

Cocoa 37, RAINES 28. Vikings didn’t let down, Cocoa was just better. 32-9.

RIBAULT 62, Stanton 0. Ouch. Even when you see it coming….ouch. 33-9.

Fleming Island 25, RIDGEVIEW 21. Guess the Golden Eagles are in the “can’t figure ’em out” group this year. 33-10.

ST. AUGUSTINE 35, Ponte Vedra 14. Jackets are not in the “can’t figure ’em out” group. They’re only going to get better. 34-10.

EPISCOPAL 7, Trinity Prep 0. Tougher game than I expected, but Eagles stay unbeaten. 35-10.

YULEE 56, Wolfson 6. This is the Yulee I expected to see for most of the season. 36-10.

GAME OF THE WEEK: Westside 21, Baker County 13. Forest Whitaker, alas, could not join CeCe Jefferson on the D-line for Baker. 37-10.

So an 18-5 week after a 19-5 week. Not too bad.


I covered wrestling for 15 years up north and "retired" in both 1992 and again in 2011. But I couldn't stay away. Started Northeast Florida Matmen in 2013, Northwest Florida Matmen in 2015. We combined those sites into North Florida Matmen in the summer of 2018. And, we've started South Georgia Matmen in November of 2018. Our work is never paywalled, our content is searchable for all time. We're here because the kids keep lacing 'em up, so we'll keep writing 'em up.
