2. Nazareth Academy 6-0 (2)
Last Week: Beat Carmel, 55-17
This Week: vs Marist
EDGY's Take: It'll be a big, big test this week for the Roadrunners. Last year was ugly against Marist. Expect Nazareth to be ready for this one on Friday.

3. Batavia 6-0 (3)
Last Week: Beat Geneva, 48-0
This Week: @ St. Charles East
EDGY's Take: The Bulldogs take care of Geneva. Does this week's game at St. Charles East have "trap game" written all over it?  

4. Brother Rice 6-0 (5)
Last Week: Beat St. Rita, 21-14
This Week: @ Marmion Academy
EDGY's Take: The Crusaders snuck by rival St. Rita in a close win on Friday.

9. Marist 5-1 (9)
Last Week: Beat Marian Catholic, 42-0
This Week: @ Nazareth Academy
