Since 1984, Stratford and Goose Creek have had a heated rivalry.  With a lead of 22-13, Stratford is the current series head. Last year, the Knights consistently scored throughout the game and were able to hold back the Gators from scoring until the fourth quarter.  They went home with a 32-14 win. Tensions are higher this year because the two teams will be competing for City Championship title. Will the Gators cause an upset or will the Knights remain victorious?

The gators came away with a huge interception to stop Stratford on a potential go ahead drive early in the 4th. With one last touchdown, Goose Creek won the game 27-7.
