It’s the 36th matchup between the two teams. FPD leads the series with a record of 21-13-1.
However, Mount de Sales took last year’s matchup by a score of 48-7.
Here’s Mount de Sales head football coach Keith Hatcher on the matchup against the Vikings.
“Well, FPD, they’re hot. They’ve played really well lately. We’ve seen them on film, and it’s going to be a really tough game. They’re another well-coached football team in Macon. Another one of those Macon rivalry games where all the kids are really excited about it, so we know it’s going to be a really tough game.”
Senior quarterback Dexter Williams – who came up huge in the Cavs win last week – says you can’t take FPD lightly.
“FPD this Friday. They have a better team than they’ve had in the past. They play hard. I mean, we have to have a good week of practice. A good week of preparation to beat this team.”
