MATER DEI (7-0, 5-0) at CENTRAL (5-2, 3-2), 7 p.m. Friday
MD rolled to a 35-0 lead in playing its best half of the season last week against Bosse, then coasted to a 48-28 win. Watch out, Central. Bears QB Austin Fuchs has an ailing knee.
Prediction: Mater Dei 42, Central 24
BOSSE (4-3, 3-2) at REITZ (5-2, 4-1), 7 p.m. Friday
After winning three thrillers in a row, the Bulldogs came crashing back to earth against MD. Reitz is seeking its fifth consecutive victory.
Prediction: Reitz 38, Bosse 28
HARRISON (1-5, 0-5) vs. MEMORIAL (1-6, 1-4), 7 p.m. Friday, Enlow Field
After giving Central a good shot last week, Memorial hopes to use it as a springboard against Harrison.
Prediction: Memorial 35, Harrison 31
NORTH (2-5, 1-4) at CASTLE (4-3, 3-2), 7 p.m. Friday
The Huskies led Reitz 16-7, before giving up two TDs in the final 3:34. Will they recover against Castle, which is becoming more diversified? I doubt it.
Last week: 4-0
