(Last week's rankings in parentheses)
1. Mount Carmel (1) 1-0
The Caravan looked impressive in their season-opening win over St. Patrick. Christian Searles looked good on both sides of the ball. He returned an interception for a TD and caught two TD passes. Linebacker Nick Johnson had a pair of sacks. The Caravan host Morgan Park tonight at Gately Stadium.
2. Crete-Monee (2) 1-0
The Warriors had all facets of their game working in a 43-6 win over T.F. South. The offensive line was solid plus Crete has a good passing and running game. It hosts Evanston tonight in the first of three straight home games. The Warriors have Simeon and Benet Academy after Evanston, but cannot look ahead.
3. Thornton (3) 1-0
The Wildcats shut out Morgan Park 34-0 and travel to Naperville North tonight. The offense is explosive, but the defense really came up big last week. Cavion Clanton gives Thornton a strong ground attack to go with JoWahn Brown's passing.
