IC Catholic Prep vs Aurora Christian
It's Homecoming at IC Catholic Prep, and that might give the Knights (3-3, 2-2) just enough momentum Saturday to finish off Aurora Christian (5-1, 3-1).
The Knights are coming off a tough 38-21 loss last weekend to the undefeated Broncos of Montini Catholic. For what it's worth, the AC Eagles also are coming off a 35-14 loss, their first of the season, against Marmion Academy (5-1, 3-1).
Kickoff for this non-conference game is 1 p.m. Saturday, Oct. 12, at Plunkett Park.
Here's a look at the rest of IC's schedule. It's all SCC Gold Conference play from here on out:
- Oct. 19 vs. Walther Lutheran (1-5, 1-3)—1 p.m.
- Oct. 25 at Chicago Christian (Palos Heights) (2-4, 1-3)—7:30 p.m.
York vs. Downers Grove North
York has a lot in common with its opponent in Game 7. Both the Dukes and the Trojans are coming off wins last weekend, and both share a 3-3 overall record.
York got the better of Proviso West last weekend, bringing home a 27-20 win from the road. And the Trojans beat their cross-town rival, Downers Grove South, 42-21 in a non-conference game last week.
While the Dukes are 3-1 in WSC Silver, North has yet to win a Silver conference game. But the Trojans will have the home-field advantage. If the Dukes win this, they keep their playoff hopes alive.
Kickoff is at 7:30 p.m. Friday, Oct. 11, at 4436 Main St. in Downers Grove. If you can't make it to the game, Patch has you covered. The game will be streamed live, right here, thanks to High School Cube.
