Mercer commit Brandon Marshall would finish the game with 123yds and 1 TD on 14 rushes.

In the 3rd frame the Vikings' would put the Warriors on the clock when Iowa St. commit LB Aric Horne picked off a pass and out raced West Nassau 32yds to the house for the 28-0 lead. The playmaker Daivarus Thomas would log his 4th return TD of the year on a 56yd house call. Thomas would nearly tack on another punt return for a TD but was ultimately tackled before being able to cross the goal line. Janorris Robertson would end the defensive scoring downpour by scooping up a fumble and rumbling 68yds to the house for the 42-0 lead. LB Javon Bonsell had a huge game as well helping the Vikings stifle the Warriors, and hold them to just 89yds rushing on 39 carries. The Vikings' secondary had a great game as well as they smothered the Warriors Wrs to a dismal 24yds receiving. Raines will now host the 8-5 Dunnellon Tigers in the 4A Region 1 semi final game this Friday. The winner will move on to represent class 4A December 6th in Orlando at Camping World Stadium.
