THE OUTLOOK Both teams are no stranger to the post-season, so this 'playoff-like' atmosphere will create some electricity. A Palm Bay win gives the Pirates the 12-5A crown and puts the Mustangs in a must-win against Rockledge next week.
Palm Bay will rely heavily on RB Sekai Lindsey to control the tempo and keep the Merritt Island offense off the field. LB Ty Schwab (committed to Boston College) will have a tough job of stopping Lindsey.
For Merritt Island, it's the simple formula that's worked for 7 games thus far - use the weapons you have and take advantage of miscues.
If you look at the common opponents, Palm Bay has dominated. The Pirates are on the road and look to claim the district crown in a tough and hostile atmosphere. We think they will.
