Six regional teams advance to Round Three on a tough night for the locals


Jacksonville, Florida. The third round of high school football playoffs is in the books and it was a tough night for the area teams.

Only six teams in the region survived the second round – Baker County, Polis, Nice, Pierce County, Trinity Christian and Union County.

The seasons of Bartram Trail and Riverside ended with fashion exploding. Christian University’s state championship contender was bounced back in the second round by Quincy Monroe. And Reines couldn’t atone for a slew of turnovers in the loss to Wakulla.

It didn’t get any better for the Georgia South teams in the region, either. Unbeaten Brunswick marked the end of its perfect season with a 29-21 loss to Dakula. Ware County lost the shootout to Calhoun, 49-42.

The biggest disturbance of the night was that of Nease. The seventh-seeded Panthers went into District 1-7A to defeat the third-seeded Niceville 24-19. Nease (8-3) earned a 29-yard touchdown by Marcus Stokes five minutes before to play for the Panthers Forever mode. They will need a superhuman effort to play in top seed Gainesville Buchholz next week.

Nease has not reached the regional finals since 2007 under former coach Craig Howard. The Panthers reached their third consecutive state championship game that year.
