(Last week's rankings in parentheses)
1. Mount Carmel (1) 4-0
The Caravan did not look impressive in their Catholic League Blue opener over Brother Rice. Matt Domer had three touchdowns. They will have to really step it up a notch this week as they travel to St. Rita for another television game -- the second of three TV games in a row.
2. Homewood-Flossmoor (3) 4-0
The Vikings shut out Joliet Central and did not look past the Steelemen. Coach Craig Buzea's team has worked hard and has its hands fulll as Lincoln-Way East comes to town tonight. H-F has a lot of players who can step up and they have so far.
3. Crete-Monee (2) 3-1
Ouch! the Warriors suffered their first loss in 24 regular-season games. It also snapped a 17-game winning streak, and they got got beat in every facet of the game. It's time to go back to work as they travel to Rich East for what is always a tough Saturday afternoon game.
