WEST PALM BEACH, Fla. — Fort Pierce Central High School had a rough 2020 season, winning just one game on the year. None of that matters as the postseason begins, though.
The Cobras' defense led the way as Fort Pierce Central avenged an early season loss to St. Lucie West Centennial High School to keep their season alive.
Fort Pierce Central will travel to play Vero Beach High School next week.
In West Palm Beach, it was a private school battle between St. John Paul II Academy and Cardinal Newman High School.
St. John Paul pulled away in the second half and now has a tough trip to Miami next week.
In total, nine teams from Palm Beach County and the Treasure Coast remain in the postseason. Take a look at where they are headed next week.

Football isn't the only sport crowing a champion. Palm Beach County public schools crowned a champion in golf this week, thanks to some help from the First Tee of the Palm Beaches and Wellington National.
