Prep football: Things don't get that much easier for Hurricanes

While the Hurricanes may not see the likes of Our Lady of Good Counsel or Don Bosco Prep during the rest of their regular season, their remaining schedule isn't exactly a cakewalk.

Manatee is off Friday, but returns Sept. 30 to host rival Southeast, which takes a 3-0 record into next week's non-district game against Sarasota.

After a Class 7A-District 10 opener with Braden River on Oct. 7, the Canes host Class 8A Weston Cypress Bay (Oct. 14), which played into last year's Class 6A state semifinals, and rival Venice (Oct. 21) in a game that will probably determine the District 10 title.

The one caveat is Manatee doesn't travel too far from the friendly confines of Hawkins Stadium: the Canes' next four games are home. And when they do hit the road, the Hurricanes' longest ride will be a Nov. 4 trip to Sarasota High.
