Prep football: Canes and Tigers climb, Noles fall in AP Poll

Dave Marino's Palmetto Tigers and the Manatee Hurricanes have moved up in the latest Associated Press state football poll.

Southeast has moved down.

The Tigers, the area's only undefeated team t 5-0, is ranked sixth in Class 5A after debuting last week at No. 8. Palmetto beat Lakewood Ranch 27-0 on Friday and has recorded two straight shutouts heading into this week's District 10 game against Bayshore.

Manatee's 48-6 win over Southeast last week has vaulted the Hurricanes into a tie at No. 6 in Class 7A with Palm Beach Dwyer and Boyd Anderson. The Hurricanes (2-2) were ninth last week. They host Braden River on Friday in each team's District 10 opener.

Friday's loss was the first of the season for the Seminoles (4-1), but it was enough to send them from No. 3 to No. 8 in Class 5A. Southeast opens District 10 play Friday against visiting Arcadia DeSoto.
