34-19: Knocking the Knights Down a Peg

Judging from the final score of this game last Friday night, Vanguard has hit a mid-season snag. Once the toast of the town, the Knights have lost their last two games, far from the #1 ranking they had just two weeks ago.

That’s not, however, to belittle the Gainesville Hurricanes, arguably Alachua County’s best high school football team. Still, where does that leave Vanguard? The Panthers will no doubt be another challenge, and for the Knights, it’s now or never if they want to stamp their postage into the playoffs.

Lecanto Panthers visit the Vanguard Knights

The once-ranked #1 Vanguard Knights have fallen from grace, losing two games in a row to drop them below .500 for the second time this season. Meanwhile, the Lecanto Panthers football team is 4-3, lost their last game by a narrow margin of 37-34 to the Lake Weir Hurricanes.

With just three weeks left in the 2012 regular season football schedule, both of these teams are still looking for their identities. But is it a little too late? We’ll see this Friday night as Real Oldies 104.7 returns to Booster Stadium, Home of the Vanguard Knights!
