Over the last three years...

...Montini and Maine South have traded victories, with the home team winning each time by an average of only two points. And in each of those three seasons both schools went on to the playoffs, with Montini taking the 6A crown in 2015 with a perfect 14-0 record.

Tomorrow night's game in Park Ridge should be just as exciting. It's my Game of the Week.

The Broncos are rated No.1 in the AP 6A, No. 7 in both MaxPreps' and the Sun-Times' preseason rankings and No. 10 in the Tribune. The Hawks, meanwhile, are only ranked No. 19 in the Times, No. 35 in MaxPreps, "On the Verge" in the Trib and nowhere to be found in the AP.

Beth Long at the Sun-Times has a nice preview of the game here. Bottom line: Can Maine South contain Montini's star running back Prince Walker (above)? My Magic 8 Ball says, Don't count on it.

Here are the scores from the last three years (home team in CAPS):

2015: MONTINI 20, Maine South 17
2014: MAINE SOUTH 36, Montini 35
2013: MONTINI 21, Maine South 19
