8A Quarterfinals -
Lyons @Loyola Academy – Sat. 11/12 High Noon.
Hard to figure out this Lyons team. They took a beating from fellow 8A quarterfinalist Stevenson and Downers Grove South. Hindsdale Central & Glenbard West also took it to Lyons during the regular season.
Lyons is hot right now. They put up 45 points against #3 seed Bartlett and another 34 on #5 seed Glenbrook South. If senior running back Jamie Jones can rush for 174 yards on Loyola, like he did against Glebrook South, the Lions could pull another upset.
Good news for Loyola Academy. They are at home and if they win, they don't have to play Maine South in the semi-finals. The Ramblers are undefeated, play in a very good conference and have their eyes set on the big prize this year.
The Ramblers have the home-field, they have the difference maker (Malcolm Weaver) at quarterback and they have one of the toughest defenses in the state.
Loyola over Lyons.
