This fairly new rivalry which began in 2011 has quickly become one of northeast Florida’s most intense high school football rivalries. Atlantic Coast won the first meeting and went on to win three of the rivalry’s first four meetings, but Mandarin has claimed the three most recent which only added fuel to this already intense rivalry.

The Mustangs got three touchdowns from Carson Beck, but rival Atlantic Coast made them work for every bit of their 28-12 win in the Publix Bold City Showcase on Saturday. Beck, the state's reigning Mr. Football, had touchdown passes of 22 and 43 yards to Jaylen Smith, and added a 1-yard touchdown plunge. Beck, a Georgia commit and an Elite 11 selection, finished 10 of 18 for 223 yards. Smith had a team-best 109 yards on three catches. It was Mandarin's fifth straight win in the series. But the Stingrays were close throughout the game and played well defensively.
