Can Bosse’s last-minute heroics continue?

BOSSE (4-2, 3-1) vs. MATER DEI (6-0, 4-0), 7 p.m. Friday, Reitz Bowl
Bosse has lived a charmed life of late, winning two games in the final minute on Ian Nunley to Carrington Crutcher touchdown passes, then surviving a long FG attempt by North in the final seconds last week to win, 47-45. The Bulldogs have won 3 in a row for the first time since 2010 and are 4-2 for the first time since 1994. But their dream could come to a crashing halt against unbeaten MD, which is ranked No. 1 in Class 2A.

Prediction: MD 49, Bosse 35

CASTLE (3-3, 2-2) at HARRISON (1-4, 0-4), 7 p.m. Friday
Castle sophomore QB Will Randell grew up last week, recovering from 3 second-half interceptions to lead the Knights’ comeback, that fell short in a 31-24 loss to MD. Castle should get back on winning track against outsized Harrison

Prediction: Castle 41, Harrison 21

CENTRAL (4-2, 2-2) vs. MEMORIAL (1-5, 1-3), 7 p.m. Friday, Enlow Field
Avion Sullivan ran wild last week, gaining 354 yards and scoring 6 TDs in the Bears’ 63-21 romp over Harrison last week. Central probably has too much speed for Memorial.

Prediction: Central 42, Memorial 28

REITZ (4-2, 3-1) at NORTH (2-4, 1-3), 7 p.m. Friday
Winners of 3 in a row, the Panthers hope for the trend to continue at North’s expense. Huskies hope to bounce back from devastating 47-45 loss to Bosse.

Prediction: Reitz 35, North 21

Last week: 4-0
Overall: 24-7
