Game of the Week

Loyola (2-0, 1-0) at Br. Rice (1-1, 0-1)

April 1, 4 p.m.

Marist (2-0, 1-0) at Mt. Carmel (1-1, 0-1)

April 3, 4 p.m.

When the Chicago Catholic League and East Suburban Catholic Conference (CCL/ESCC) combined to form a superconference, it was for weekends like this.

The CCL/ESCC-Blue schedule is loaded, just like Week 2, and these matchups promise to be a ton of fun.

Facing the top team in the state, Br. Rice and senior linebacker Myles Jones (Georgetown) will look to slow down Vaughn Pemberton and the Ramblers. Loyola is coming off a home win against Mt. Carmel.

It will be up to QB Jack Lausch and the offense to put up points against a stingy Loyola defense.

On Saturday, Marist will look for a huge road win, and Mt. Carmel will try to get back on track after a tough Week 2 loss at Loyola.

The Caravan offense struggled late against the Ramblers. QB Justin Lynch aims to get the offense moving up and down the field again.

For Marist, junior QB Dontrell Jackson Jr. made some big throws in the Br. Rice win. Jamari Grant was huge in the ground game for the RedHawks.

Grant versus Kenenna Odeluga will be an exciting matchup of senior running backs.
