The Cocoa Tigers fell 49-10 Friday night to the Nation’s number 1 team – the Booker T. Washington Hurricanes – in a game played at Traz Powell Stadium in Miami, Florida.

For the third year in a row, the Tigers were defeated by the Hurricanes in the playoffs, but Tiger Coach John Wilkinson, and Space Coast Sports Hall of Fame member, continues to keep his program performing at a high level, reaching the playoffs seven consecutive years.

MERRITT ISLAND FINISHES SEASON 12-1

On Friday night, the Merritt Island Mustangs traveled to Lake Wales to take on the Highlanders and put their perfect 12-0 record on the line. In a game that ultimately could have went either way, the Highlanders defeated the 5A fourth-ranked Mustangs 34-23.

Mustang Coach Jeff McLean said he was extremely proud of his team, and that the expectations going into next season will be high.

Merritt Island concluded the 2013 season with a 12-1 record, their best finish since 2004, and before that, the Mustangs went undefeated and won the state championship in 1979.

HERITAGE HAS BEST SEASON IN SCHOOL HISTORY

Heritage Coach Ajay Ulmer’s Panthers also traveled to Traz Powell Stadium in Miami, Florida and took on the Miami Central Rockets. The Rockets, ranked third in the USA Today Super 25 in the nation, defeated the Panthers 53-3.

The Panthers enjoyed their best season in the school’s history, finishing at 12-1, and will be in a rebuilding year in 2014 as Ulmer will graduate 19 seniors.

PLAYOFF CAPSULES & PREDICITIONS

HERITAGE @ MIAMI CENTRAL

WHEN: Saturday, Nov. 30
WHERE: Traz Powell Stadium, Miami, Florida
WHAT: 6A Regional Finals

Heritage will have its toughest test in the short history of the program. Miami Central is ranked No. 3 in the nation and No. 2 in Florida. Heritage is ranked No. 4 in 6A and looking for respect in its quest for an undefeated season and state championship.

QB Clinton Moxam will be involved in the running game as Heritage will look to show the 305 area code that the 321 can play hard-nosed football. (SpaceCoastDaily.com image)

This game will feature star running backs on both teams. Central has prized recruits Joseph Yearby and Dalvin Cook who have punished teams to the tune of 3,060 yards and 46 rushing touchdowns. Heritage, undefeated and underrated, has a stable of backs in Dedric Witherspoon, Josh Gaines and Josh Hardin.

QB Clinton Moxam will be involved in the running game as Heritage will look to show the 305 area code that the 321 can play hard-nosed football.

HERITAGEHELMETS-435

Heritage can emerge on the national stage with an upset victory. Look for Heritage to play close to the line of scrimmage to the stop the run of Yearby and Cook.

Heritage can emerge on the national stage with an upset victory. Look for Heritage to play close to the line of scrimmage to the stop the run of Yearby and Cook. Central will test the secondary with deep routes from Keith Reed and Da’Vonte Phillips. Expect Central to try and stop the Heritage running game and force Moxam to beat them with his arm.

Heritage must come out fast and not give up early scores like it has this season, and play four quarters of Panther Football.

Witherspoon and Gaines will have to keep the chains moving and have a big night to remain unbeaten. This game will be a thriller as Heritage hopes to upset the nationally-ranked Central Rockets. Heritage wins a close one.

HERITAGE KEY PLAYERS: Clinton Moxam (Sr. QB), Josh Gaines (So. RB), Dedric Witherspoon (Sr. ATH), Josh Harden (So. RB)

MIAMI CENTRAL KEY PLAYERS: Da’Vonte Phillips (Jr. WR), Joseph Yearby (Sr. RB) , Dalvin Cook (Sr. RB), Keith Reed (Sr. QB)

PREDICTION: Heritage 28, Miami Central 21

COCOA @ BOOKER T. WASHINGTON

WHEN: Friday, Nov. 29
WHERE: Traz Powell Stadium, Miami, Florida
WHAT: 4A Sate Semifinals Finals

Booker T. Washington is ranked No. 1 in the nation, has a healthy QB returner in 4-star recruit Treon Harris and have dominated all comers this season.

Cocoa is once again the top-rated team high school football team on the Space Coast. (SpaceCoastDaily.com image)

Cocoa is ranked No. 2 in Class 4A, and dealing with injuries in the past two weeks. In what was an already daunting task, Cocoa will be without four starters as they face the No. 1 team in the nation. (SpaceCoastDaily.com image)

This team looks unbeatable on paper and on film. Booker T. Washington is well coached and are determined to win a state championship and a possible national championship.

Cocoa is ranked No. 2 in Class 4A, and dealing with injuries in the past two weeks. In what was an already daunting task, Cocoa will be without four starters as they face the No. 1 team in the nation.

John Wilkinson

John Wilkinson

Coach Wilkinson will have to figure out the Booker T. Washington puzzle after going 0-2 in the past two seasons. Wilkinson wouldn’t want it any other way as Cocoa lives off being David in these Goliath match ups. Having gone out of state and defeating Abilene Texas, another No. 1 ranked team in the nation, Cocoa knows it can be done.

Will history repeat itself? Will Booker T. Washington continue its dominance over Cocoa? Will Cocoa defeat another No. 1 team when no one in the country gives them a chance? Look for a lot of points to be scored in this one as both teams averaged over 40 points a game this season, but BTW pulls away late in the fourth quarter for the victory.

COCOA KEY PLAYERS: Freddie Booth-Lloyd (Sr. DT), James Folston (Sr. ILB), Chauncey Gardner (So. DB), Jamel Jackson (Sr. DB), Lane Burnett (Sr. DL), Tavares Parks (Sr. DL), Lor’renzo Pratt (Sr. RB), Bruce Judson (Fr. QB)

BOOKER T. WASHINGTON KEY PLAERS: Treon Harris (Sr. QB), Krondis Larry (Sr. RB), Mark Walton (So. RB), Lamar Parker (Sr. WR), Nigel Patten (Sr. DB), Jared Miller (Jr. OL), Osvelt Joseph (Sr. DL), Akeem Jackson (Jr. LB), Terrawn Mcphee (Sr. WR), Deltron Hopkins (Sr. WR), Tevin Evans ( Sr. DE), Deiontae Lynch (Jr. DT), Chad Thomas (Sr. DE)

PREDICTION: Booker T. Washington 40, Cocoa 27

MERRITT ISLAND @ LAKE WALES

Lake Wales 13, Merritt Island 7 2nd quarter

WHERE: Lake Wales, Florida
WHAT: 5A Regional Finals

Merritt Island is having one of its best season since 1979 and has the formula for a perfect season. Great defense, balanced offense and great special teams could lead them to a state championship.

Ty Schwab

Ty Schwab

Standing in the way is a Lake Wales team that was in this position last season in the Regional Finals. This season, Lake Wales hope to use that experience and capitalize on any mistakes thMustangs make.

Look for Lake Wales to try establish a running game in this one. That could be a tough task as Merritt Island has great upfront pressure and some talented LBs that can come up and stop the run. Merritt Island will also try to establish the run to set up pass routes later on down field.

Nick Smith

Nick Smith

Mustang QB Nick Smith will be the key to this game. If he continues to be efficient when called upon, this could give Merritt Island the edge it needs to move on.

The difference-maker in this game could be Railond Garrett. If he can keep Merritt Island out of the box by hitting some passes downfield, that could open up running lanes for its ground game. Look for Lakes Wales to take plenty of shots downfield to Markus Walker, Dedric Drinson and Eddie Joseph.

Merritt Island will use its balanced attack to win a close game and move on to the State Semifinals.

MERRITT ISLAND KEY PLAYERS: Ty Schwab ( Sr. LB), Shaq Jones (Sr. ATH), Nick Smith (Sr. QB), Johnny Batch (Sr. DB), P.J Kellem (Sr. DB), John Batch (Sr. ATH)

LAKE WALES KEY PLAYERS: Railond Garrett (Sr. QB), Darion Staten (Jr. DB), Ernest Hamilton (Jr. RB), Juston Henderson (Jr. RB), Dedric Brinson (Sr. WR), Eddie Joseph (Jr. ATH), Markus Walker (Jr. ATH)

PREDICTION: Merritt Island 28, Lake Wales 24
