Pope John Paul (5-7) at Avon Park (10-2) KICKOFF: 7:30 p.m. RADIO: None. ABOUT POPE JOHN PAUL: The Eagles are the only team remaining in any classification with a oelow-.5O0 record. They pounded Melbourne Central Catholic 44-14 in the first round and rallied from a 10-point fourth-quarter deficit to defeat Fort Lauderdale-Pine Crest 27-24 last week in the quarterfinals. Fullback Robert "The Diesel" Cazenave rushed for 1 55 yards and three touchdowns against MCC, and Chris Coleman rushed for 141 yards and two touchdowns against Pine Crest. Starting linebacker Scott Hanley, the Eagles' leading tackier during the regular season, will not play because of a broken collarbone he suffered in the last game of the regular season against Royal Palm Beach. ABOUT AVON PARK: The Red Devils, ranked No. 7 in the Class 3A state poll, defeated No. 9-ranked Fort Myers-Bishop Verot 46-14 In the first round and beat Frostproof, the 3A state runner-up last year, 24-1 4 last week. They feature an offensive backfield that loves to punish opposing defenses. Running back Boise Jones is 6-foot-4, 220 pounds, and runs behind the blocking of 6-5, 255-pound senior Derrick Crawford, who also anchors a big and aggressive defense that forced seven turnovers against Frostproof. DIRECTIONS: Take Route 27 north past Sebring to Avon Park in Highlands County. School is located at 700 East Main Street. 511 CODE: 11. Pahokee (5-7) at Clewiston (11-1) KICKOFF: 7:30 p.m. RADIO: WSWN-900AM, WAFC- 106.3FM. ABOUT PAHOKEE: Coach Joe Marx said he circled tonight's date back in August when the Blue Devils lost to Clewiston in the pre-season Kickoff Classic. Now, a berth in the regional final game is at stake in this rematch of two rivals who played each other 34 times between 1950 and 1984. "It's a mini-Muck Bowl," he said. Pacing the offense will be junior quarterback An-quan Boldin, whose running game is as threatening as his passing game. Pa-hokee's defense has allowed 9.3 points per game. Last week, they beat Miami-Gulliver 23-3 in a last week's second-round game. Pahokee's record is actually 8-4 because an ineligible player forced the Blue Devils to forfeit three non-district games. ABOUT CLEWISTON: "I told my players they're going to experience something Friday night that they've never experienced in their athletic careers in terms of excitement," said coach Al Morrell. Not only are the Tigers playing in the third round of the playoffs for the first time since 1986, they are playing it at home against an old-time rival. Morrell said his players watched a video of last week's Pahokee game while eating a pre-game dinner at the First Baptist Church. At least 4,000 and as many as 7,000 people are expected to watch quarterback Josh Polhill lead the Tigers' quest for a first state championship since 1981. DIRECTIONS: Cane Field, 601 W.

Glades Central has compiled a 65-5 regular-season record the Football Robinson certainly does not share the same kind of successful history as Glades Central, but the Knights reached tonight's game by beating, ironically, two of the teams that have stopped the Raiders in the playoffs in recent years Bartow in the first round and Haines City last week. "They're good," Watson said of the 11-1 Knights. "They beat a good Bartow team at Bartow, so they're no slouch." Neither, of course, is unbeaten Glades Central, which so far in the playoffs has lived up to its No. 1 ranking in the state poll.

The regional semifinals have been a huge roadblock this decade for Glades Central, which has not lost more than two games in a season since 1990. I Glades Central has reached this point of the playoffs four times in the past six years and lost three times. Haines City defeated the Raiders in 1991, Rockledge beat them in 1994 and Bartow stopped their state championship hopes last year en route to winning the Class 4A state title. ;..
