Ladies and gentleman, Jeremy Writt has left the building. While last-place Cotey and Wright saved their hides by going 12-3, Writt stumbled to a second straight 8-7 week. That means his 16-14 record is rock bottom, and he is outta here. Everyone else is 0-0, and our next two-week elimination starts ... right ... now!
All games at 7:30 unless noted.
Largo (2-0) at Dixie Hollins (3-0), 620-AM
LAST MEETING: Dixie Hollins 16, Largo 7 (2004)

Palm Harbor U (1-2) at Countryside (3-0)

Gibbs (1-1) at St. Petersburg (0-3)
LAST MEETING: Gibbs 47, St. Petersburg 14 (2004)

Clearwater (1-2) at East Lake (2-1)
LAST MEETING: East Lake 21, Clearwater 18 (2004)

Central (2-1) at Tarpon Springs (2-1)

Pinellas Park (0-3) at Seminole (2-1)
