Date And Time: 10/26/2018 7:00 pm
Location: Kathleen High School
With both schools established by 1928, this rivalry game includes the two oldest high schools in Polk County, Florida. After beating Lakeland in 4 of the last 5 meetings before the 2017 matchup, Kathleen went down to the Dreadnaughts 10-3 in a tight defensive matchup. Looking to establish themselves as the leader in the series, the Red Devils hope to upset the undefeated Lakeland squad this Friday.
The Lakeland Dreadnaughts defeated Kathleen for the first time in five meetings in 2017 and certainly didn't rest on their laurels or get complacent in 2018. They had the look of a team ready to start their own streak of victories against their bitter rival. The Lakeland offense could not be stopped. Led by MVP running back Demarkus Bowman, the Dreadnaughts ran all over the Red Devils. In the end, this one was a blowout, Lakeland 49, Kathleen 0.
