Last week's rankings in parentheses
1. Crete-Monee 8-0 (1)
The Warriors are looking for their second consecutive undefeated regular season, but Rich East will be ready to give them a game. Beware of the Wing-T. This team knows nine wins won't do. It has bigger plans. The "Cheap-Monee" defense has been very stingy.
2. Mount Carmel 7-1 (2)
It beat St. Rita and did so with a 27-0 shutout. Now it's Providence in another tough one, but a good way to enter the playoffs. The defense has two consecutive shutouts, and the offense is moving the ball and keeping the defense rested.
3. T.F. South 7-1 (3)
The Rebels can win the South Suburban Blue title, but a tough Oak Forest team is in town tonight. It would be the Rebels' first SSC Blue title since joining the league in 2009. South is back in the playoffs, and this is a great unselfish group which is one of the reasons it has won seven in a row.
