Breakdown

Two of the top teams in the section square off in their annual rivalry game. Cathedral is on a tear after totaling 90 points in back to back shutout wins. With no home games on their schedule, the Saints hope to continue their road tour with their biggest signature win of this shorten season.

Junior quarterback Charlie Mirer has looked solid so far, throwing for 377 yards and five touchdowns passing in the first two games. His main target Rex Haynes, who has proven to be a deep threat, has six catches for 231 yards and three trips to the end zone. The Dons' run game is led by fellow junior Lucky Sutton, who has 33 carries for 271 yards and four scores.

Junior defensive end Jaxson Moi is one of many key players in Cathedral's defense that hasn't given up a single point. Dee'Shon Swafford is a shutdown corner as well as a speedster who can score in the return game.

To keep their shutout streak going, the Dons must stop the St. Augustine passing attack led by senior Richard Colmenero III, who is no stranger to big games. Ayo Shotomide is having a breakout year, making plays for the Saints as a cornerback and receiver. Gracen Halton is most known for his explosive plays on the edge, but also look for him to complement Isaiah Pressley in the rushing attack.
