7 p.m. From Space Coast
BREVARD COUNTY, FLORIDA – Rockledge Raider (1-3) travel up to Vipers stadium to take on the Space Coast Vipers (2-3) Monday night after Friday night’s game was washed out due to rain and lightning.
Kickoff set for 7 p.m.
Rockledge heads into Monday’s matchup coming off a two-game losing streak with the most recent loss to Godby (Tallahassee) where the Raiders fell in a close game 20-14 on the road.
Space Coast is coming off of a blowout win against Poinciana, where the Vipers destroyed the winless Eagles 44-12.
Last year, it was Space Coast that barely got by Rockledge last year after a successful 2-pt conversion by Space Coast in the closing seconds that notched a big victory for head coach Jake Owens and his Vipers 29-28.
This year Rockledge is lead by their young and upcoming sophomore running back Jalen Mitchell. Mitchell has the vision and speed to break it loose in the open field, the Vipers defense will look to minimize Mitchell’s impact in the ground attack.
Space Coast is led by their junior quarterback Bradley Cantrell and their dynamic offense. Cantrell is completing 63-percent of his passes and has accumulated over 1200 yards passing in five games. Last week, he tossed for 300 yards and five touchdowns. Space Coast running back Johnny Jones is also averaging nearly 10-yards a carry. Add that, to the double threat wide receivers of the Vipers, (Browning and Perrine) the Rockledge defense will have their hands full tonight.
Alan Zlotorzynski and Zach Clark will be on the call tonight. Listen to the live action here on Space Coast Daily.
