This was the third and most important game of the season, and took place at Tropical park at 7:30 p.m. With an extremely close final score of 13-14, it is clear that the Cavaliers have some work to do.   "It was a far fought game on both sides.

Although it only lasted approximately 45 minutes, the pep rally demonstrated the students' excitement and pride for their football team, all in preparation for the Columbus versus Gables game at 7:30 p.m. at Tropical Park. The pep rally kicked off with the introduction of Power 96 by coanchors Alejandro Arzola and Holden Payne as the official DJs of the event. Similar to prior pep rallies, this one included performances by Color Guard, Cheerleaders, Band, Sisters With Attitude and Gablettes, all which highlighted the numerous talents at Gables. To reassure the attendees that Gables was destined to win the Columbus game, Principal Costa gave an inspiring speech about Cavalier pride. With the help of TV Production's Javier Cobas, a new video was showcased. The video footage documented past games versus Columbus, which ended both disappointedly and ecstatically. Furthermore, Power 96 held a relay r...
