GAME 8 - SOUTHWEST SHOWDOWN - PART 2

The Skinny: Much like the aforementioned game between Dunbar and Immokalee - this game features two playoff-bound teams that are equally matched. The dual-threat running attack of Venice vs. the spread-it-out offense of Naples. Lots of scoring should be expected in this one as both teams have plenty of firepower to go around.

vs
VENICE
NAPLES
Prediction: NAPLES
PLAYERS TO WATCH:

Venice: DB Quaheem Kapinski, QB Kale Youtzy ATH Terry Polk.

NAPLES; DB [DB]Jules Dornevil[/db], RB Manny Morgan QB Kilton Anderson, LB/DB Jordan Perez, WR Malachi Esdale

THE OUTLOOK: This is a much better game than people may give it credit. Naples' offense has been consistent and so has Venice.

The Indians and Eagles are both headed to post-season - and this is as good of a test as it gets.

Venice is led by RB Terry Polk - who has rushed for 1475 yards this season - and QB Kale Youtzy (1221 yards rushing). The running game for Venice is lights out.

Naples will counter that with a fast-flowing defense that shut down Immokalee earlier in the year. The Eagles on the offensive side, ride the arm of Jr. QB Kilton Anderson and RB Manny Morgan. Anderson has thrown for 911 yards and 12 touchdowns - while rushing for 285 and scoring 12 more. Morgan is the workhorse on offense, 1247 yards rushing and 21 touchdowns.

Defensively, both teams bend but don't break. Look for a high scoring game.

PREDICTION: Naples 31 Venice 20
