Palm Beach Central wide receiver Markel King steps into the end zone to celebrate his second touchdown of the night.  His two scores pointed to a blowout of 44-14 when Dwyer visited on September 3.

5. Miami Carol City (1-3) at Glades Central (3-1)

In week five, an out of district game against a 1-to-3 squad doesn’t seem overwhelmingly exciting – until you realize this will be quarterback Garrison Kepley’s first game of the season.

After winning an injunction following a month-long battle between his family and the FHSAA, Kepley will finally have his senior season and Palm Beach County will see Glades Central to its full potential.

Friday, 6.30 p.m.

Prediction: 35-21, central undergrowth

4. Stoneman Douglas (2-1) at Boca Raton (3-1)

Stoneman Douglas has accumulated a total of 16 points this season. Boca – at its worst – scored 21 points against Palm Beach County’s No.1 team, Palm Beach Central.

The Bobcats will try their third consecutive district victory while Stoneman Douglas will try his first.

Friday, 6.30 p.m.

Prediction: 35-7, Boca Raton

3. American Heritage (1-3) to Benjamin (3-1)

Two private schools. Two periods of reconstruction. Guess which school is closest to the light at the end of the tunnel.

Benjamin, an underclass, suffered his first loss to a top ranked and reputable Gulliver Prep team. However, it was by far the most difficult competition for the Buccaneers. The Stallions have faced tougher competition – and they have impact players, including Super 11 wide receiver Brandyn Butler and junior defensive end and linebacker CJ Johnson.

Friday, 7 p.m.

Prediction: 24-14, Benjamin

2. Palm Beach Gardens (3-2) to Palm Beach Lakes (0-5)

The time has come for one of the county’s favorite rivalry games, and it could be one of the most exciting yet.

Of course, their records are clearly different, but one thing these two teams have in common is that they will fight tooth and nail until the end. Three of the Rams ‘losses have come by touchdowns and all of the Gators’ wins have been within 3 points.

Therefore, please be aware that I am making my choice based on recordings only, as this one could go both ways.

Friday, 6.30 p.m.

Prediction: 31-28, Palm Beach Gardens

1. Jupiter (3-2) at Palm Beach Central (4-0)

The fifth-ranked FHSAA team for Florida State and the Post’s No.1 team in Palm Beach County will look to continue their winning streak in Wellington.

The Warriors will be sidelined again, after a 21-point shutout against Suncoast (0-2) which should have been much more important. Week after week, Jupiter’s work in the trenches made victory possible, especially on offense – a good thing if they are to face the Broncos.

Friday, 6.30 p.m.

Prediction: 44-17, Palm Beach Central

Other zone games:

Lake Worth at Forest Hill, 6:30 p.m.

Santaluces at Park Vista, 6.30 p.m.
