De La Salle at Marmion
When: 7:30 p.m. Friday
Last Week: St. Laurence 55, Marmion 10; De La Salle 21, Mt. Carmel 14
What to watch for: Marmion (5-2, 2-1) has stumbled the past two weeks after starting the season 5-0. After a pair of emotional come-from-behind victories, the Cadets' momentum has slowed in recent weeks. They still have a great opportunity for a playoff berth , but a division rival in De La Salle (5-2, 2-1) won't make it easy with an offense that can points up in flurries.
Burlington Central at Marengo
When: 7 p.m. Friday
Last Week: Woodstock North 17, Burlington Central 7; Richmond-Burton 35 Marengo 7
What to watch for: Central's defense had a hard time stopping the methodical Woodstock North triple option, and now the Rockets (3-4, 1-4) have to win out in order for a shot at the playoffs. Marengo (2-5, 1-3) began the season 0-4, but picked up two wins before another loss last week. With Burlington's playoff lives on the line, expect an all-out effort.
