After coming off a gritty 14-12 win against St. Genevieve, the Saints are looking to stay atop the Del Rey League, and hopefully, all but clinch a playoff berth Friday night against Harvard-Westlake.
Del Rey is neck-and-neck for the top three spots for playoffs, as St. Anthony, Harvard-Westlake, and La Salle are all 1-1 in league play.
In last year’s contest, the Saints won in dominating fashion, blasting past the Wolverines, 53-23. Within their common opponent, St. Genevieve, both teams barely escaped the Valiants. Harvard-Westlake defeated St. Genevieve 21-20 on Oct. 1.
The matchup to watch is the Saints defense and how they will contain Harvard-Westlake’s quarterback, Henry Wendrof, who averages about 260 yards per game.
Kick off is Friday, Oct. 21, at 7 P.M. at St. Paul High School.
