When the two teams met at the center field, North Marion was in garnet and gold, while Atlantic wore green and orange. It looked to be a classic matchup of Florida State Vs. Miami. Although it was not the rivalry game that will be played on September 5th in Tallahassee, it was still a great game nonetheless.
The first score was a 15 yard pass from soon-to-be Junior QB Mike Brinkley. Then after a defensive stop North Marion scored again on a 45 yard pass from Brinkley to Sean Mackey. Mackey turned a 5 yard out into a 45 yard weaving scammper into the endzone.
At the half way point North Marion led 20-0. However, Preston Parker and company made a comback in the second half, but it wasn't enough to over come the defense of North Marion. When it was all over North Marion won 28-12, becoming the Sling and Shoot Champions in 2005.
