With win, Mater Dei can take control of SIAC race

MATER DEI (5-0, 3-0) at CASTLE (3-2, 2-1), 7 p.m. Friday
Castle has won back-to-back SIAC titles with undefeated league records. If MD takes this game, it will seize control of SIAC race, barring a slip down the line. Christian Peach ran for a school-record 307 yards in Knights’ 39-14 romp over North, but don’t expect him to get half that against MD’s “D.”

Prediction: MD 28, Castle 24

CENTRAL (3-2, 1-2) at HARRISON (1-3, 0-3), 7 p.m. Friday
Look for another high-scoring game as Central can light the scoreboard, but can’t stop anyone. Harrison has plenty of athletes to make things interesting. Both teams are coming off devastating losses.

Prediction: Central 42, Harrison 35

MEMORIAL (1-4, 1-2) at REITZ (3-2, 2-1), 7 p.m. Friday
After a 1-2 start, Panthers have rebounded with two successive wins. Look for them to make it three in a row, against stubborn Memorial.

Prediction: Reitz 27, Memorial 20

NORTH (2-3, 1-2) at BOSSE (3-2, 2-1), 7 p.m. Friday
Coming off back-to-back victories over Castle and Memorial, Bosse is seeking its first win over North since 1996. Huskies have been struggling.

Prediction: Bosse 35, North 28

Last week: 4-0
Overall: 20-7

Thanks for reading.
