It's starting to look like a countdown to the showdown on Oct. 5 as both the Lakeland Dreadnaughts and George Jenkins Eagles remained unbeaten following wins on Friday night.
Star running back Demarkcus Bowman exploded for four touchdowns on just six touches as the Dreadnaughts blasted St. Pete Gibbs, 58-0, while George Jenkins held off Ridge Community, 14-7, in a classic defensive struggle.
The unbeaten teams in Polk County are beginning to dwindle as now just Lakeland, George Jenkins, All Saints and Victory Christian hold 4-0 records.
