It’s going to be a big Friday night for the Viera High football team.

Not only will the Hawks host Martin County in a 7 p.m. game that will likely decide the Class 7A, District 6 championship, it’s also Viera’s homecoming game

Martin County (5-1) is on a five-game winning streak, including a 31-28 victory over South Fork two weeks ago in a district game.

Viera (4-2) also opened district play two weeks ago with a 52-16 win against Melbourne.

The Hawks were set to play Palm Bay last week, but that game was cancelled because of Hurricane Matthew and won’t be rescheduled.

Should Viera get the win on Friday, it would need to defeat South Fork in a road game scheduled for Oct. 28 to claim its third straight outright district title. If Martin County wins, it can claim the crown with a home win against Melbourne, also on Oct. 28.

HOLY TRINITY TO PLAY TWICE IN FOUR DAYS

The Holy Trinity Tigers will certainly be keeping themselves busy over the next couple of weeks.

After hosting Village Academy (2-4) on Friday night, the Tigers (3-1) will play at Eau Gallie on Monday at 6 p.m.

Holy Trinity was originally scheduled to play the Commodores (3-2) last week, but that game was postponed because of Hurricane Matthew.

After playing two games in four days, the Tigers will head to Savannah, Georgia to play defending state champ Memorial Day.

That will be followed with an Oct. 28 road game against Class 3A, District 6 opponent John Carroll. The winner of that game will likely be the second-place team and qualify for the playoffs.
