PREVIEW: St. Anthony vs. St. Paul Football

The Saints are hosting a Del Rey League championship game tonight at Clark Field at 7 p.m.

If St. Anthony (3-6, 2-1) can pull off the upset of St. Paul, it would create a three-way league title between the Saints, St. Paul, and Harvard-Westlake. In that scenario, the three teams would share the league championship but coin flips would determine who was seeded first and second into the CIF-SS playoffs, with the third seed missing the playoffs.

The Saints have found their footing in league, after a 1-5 non league start. Nick Billoups has become a touchdown machine against Del Rey League opponents, and is now up to 17 touchdowns on the year.

This game is the Saints’ regular season finale, with a final week bye.
