REPLAY: Rockledge at Merritt Island with FNLR’s Steve Wilson, Orville Susong, Alan Zlotorzynski and Sam Martello providing coverage from Merritt Island.

BREVARD COUNTY, FLORIDA – The Rockledge Raiders are sprinting towards a special season.

For the second straight week the Raiders decisively defeated a rival for the first time since 2007 and as they did in last week’s 42-6 over Palm Bay, did it on the road. Rockledge used a dominating rushing attack and stifling defense to run past Merritt Island, 37-14 at the O Dome where the Mustangs were celebrating “Senior Night” and Homecoming.

With a win over the Titusville Terriers next Friday coupled with a Merritt Island win over Space Coast, the Raiders would wrap up the Class 5A District 14 championship for the first since the 07 season. If Rockledge wins and the Mustangs can’t beat the Vipers, Rockledge will have another clinching shot three days later when they play Space Coast in a make-up game from Irma.

In Friday’s contest, the two teams traded opening drive scores as Florida State commit Jashaun Corbin scored on a 14-yard run but the point after attempt kick failed. The Mustangs marched down the field and scored when Cody Clark hauled in a 15-yard TD pass from QB Mike Moss.

The extra was good and Merritt Island led for the only time in the contest, 7-6.

Rockledge then reeled off 23 unanswered points as Corbin contributed directly to 21 of them, scoring on runs of one and 71 yards and he also tossed a 29-yard TD pass to Ian Edwards. The Raiders defense also chipped in with a safety on a bad punt attempt by Merritt Island.

The Mustangs stopped the run in the fourth quarter as Moss hooked up with Deben Peterson for a 12-yard strike. But the Raiders answered to close out the Mustangs when Ladarius Tennison scampered in from 5-yards out.

The Mustangs streak of 10 straight years of reaching the playoffs took a serious blow with Friday night’s loss. They dropped to 4-3 and now have two home losses to district foes. If they fail to qualify it will be the first time Merritt Island misses the post-season since the last time Rockledge qualified for them, 2007.

Fernandina Beach 13 (4-4) vs Satellite 56 (6-1)

REPLAY: Fernandina Beach vs Satellite with Space Coast Daily’s Zach Clark, Graham McGowan and Daryl Durand providing LIVE coverage from Satellite.

BREVARD COUNTY, FLORIDA – The Satellite Scorpions (6-1) defeated the Fernandina Beach Pirates (4-4) Friday night 56-13 on Senior night in Satellite, shown on Space Coast Daily TV.

Brevard County’s Cinderella team, the Satellite Scorpions, have been one of the best success stories of the 2017 high school football season, and Friday night proved why.

Led by quarterback Noah Mumme, the senior broke the all-time passing record at Satellite on a historic night after passing for over 1,800 yards on the year with three games to go on the season.

The 6-foot-3, 190-pound quarterback recorded four total touchdowns on the evening.

Under first-year head coach Ted Kimmey, the Scorpions have flourished through seven games and improved their overall record to 6-1.

The Satellite offense was also led by senior running back Luis Morris who ran for nearly 100 yards and 4 touchdowns on the night.

Defensive back Cade Larkin led the defense on the evening and snagged his fourth interception which resulted in a pick-six touchdown after the senior returned it 45-yards.

The Scorpions hit the road next week when they visit Harmony (5-3) who are coming off a dominating win over Celebration 41-0.
