Here are just a few intriguing Week One games (with last year's records in parentheses):
East Moline (United) (2-7) at LaSalle-Peru (3-6)*;
Brother Rice (10-2) at Marist (9-5) at Soldier Field;
East St. Louis (3-6) at Providence (3-6)**;
Montini (14-0) at Maine South (8-3);
St. Laurence (10-3) at Benet (8-3);
Simeon (9-4) at Oak Park River Forest (9-2);
Jacobs (7-3) at Huntley (10-1); and
Prairie Ridge (11-2) at Cary-Grove (11-2).
That last one looks particularly interesting.
* Admittedly not the best matchup of the evening, but it takes place at Howard Fellows Stadium (above) which is on my bucket list.
** Don't let those 3-6 records fool you; these are two perennial powers.
