September 20, 2013GAME 3 - The last time Bolles did not win a district championship - it happened in the 'Graveyard' - that mystical place known as Earl Kitchings Stadium at Raines High School. Located just across the street from a graveyard, the Vikings tend to get 'crunk' for the big games. Count on this one to produce some 'big game chills' as Raines and Bolles battle for first in the district.

PLAYERS TO WATCH:
Box scores and trends do not tell the whole story. But sometimes, they say enough to know which team will win.
The Vikings will not be able to get away with scoring seven points like they did against Northwestern, or even the 18 points that beat First Coast (in overtime). They will be up against a Bolles team that has only gotten stronger with every passing week.
The margin of victory has increased with every Bulldogs win.
The Vikings will need to keep multiple defenders on Dexter Carter at all times. He can beat you in the return game and in the passing attack.
Linebackers will need to be sharp as they watch dual-threat Quarterback Joe Edden and Running Back Christian Bermudez. For Bolles - it's maintain and endure. The Bulldogs will face a fast offensive threat that will have the backing of a vocal crowd behind them. The last time the 'Dogs lost a district game, it was on the road at Raines - a game Bolles led by double-digits in the 4th quarter.
The Vikings are coming off an emotional 18-10 overtime win over First Coast - a game which saw Carlton Williams intercept the potential tying TD pass.
