TRAC Football Blog Week 7 Kewanee Looks to Remain Undefeated

The Kewanee Boilermakers will be at home against the Mendota Titans following a tough, hard fought victory over the Hall Red Devils last Friday night. The kicking game saved the Boilers in the end as Brady Clark kicked two crucial field goals that proved to be the difference in a 24-22 victory.

Mendota comes into Kewanee following a 60 to 0 win over the Sherrard Tigers on Friday night. Mendota is 5 and 1 on the season with their only loss coming in a week 4 loss to Princeton, 28 to 7. Mendota has outscored opponents 233 to 118 this season while the Boilers have beaten opponents 243 to 204, including a 49 to 21 win over common opponent, Princeton.

Speaking of the Sherrard Tigers and Coach Brandon Johnston, they are now 0-6 on the season following their blowout loss to Mendota. Sherrard has been outscored this season, 278 to 26, something they hope to change a little as they take on the 3 and 3 Rockridge Rockets on the road in Taylor Ridge. Rockridge won last Friday over the Morrison Mustangs 28 to 7.

The Morrison Mustangs are 1 and 5 this season with their only win coming against Sherrard in week 5. The Mustangs will host the 2 and 4 Orion Chargers coming off a hard fought loss to the Mon-Rose Titans in Week 6. It was the first time in Orion history that the Chargers have lost to Mon-Rose. Final score 34 to 28.

Mon-Rose is now 5 and 1 and playoff eligible this season. The Titans only loss came against the still undefeated and now state ranked, Kewanee Boilermakers. Mon-Rose will look for win number 6 against the struggling Riverdale Rams on Thursday. The Rams come into Friday’s game 0 and 6.

The team that sent Riverdale to 0 and 6 this season were the E-P Panthers who look to become playoff eligible this weekend when they travel to Manlius for a game against the reeling Bureau Valley Storm. Erie Prophetstown has played three of the closest games of the season including a barn-burner against Rockridge in week 4 which the Panthers won 50 to 48.

The Bureau Valley Storm head into their game against a very good Erie-Prophetstown team riding a four game losing streak after the Storm lost a close game against the St Bede Bruins, 13 to 7. The Storm are now 2 and 4 this season with their only wins coming against 0 and 6 Sherrard and O and 6 Riverdale.

With a win over Bureau Valley last week, the St Bede Bruins moved to 5 and 1 on the season with their only loss coming against the Kewanee Boilermakers in week 3, 51 to 27. The Bruins will play host to the Princeton Tigers this Friday, a fellow 5 and 1 team. It’s a pivotal match up for two teams that have only one loss, each having lost to the top team in the conference, the Kewanee Boilermakers.

Princeton shutout Newman Central Catholic last Friday night 41 to 0. The Comets return home to Sterling on Friday to host the Hall Red Devils whose 2 and 4 record is deceiving. Hall has losses this season to Kewanee, Mendota, Mon-Rose and Princeton, the top teams in the conference but only their game against Princeton was a blowout loss, 49 to 20. In fact, Hall has cumulatively outscored their opponents this season 223 to 202. All of this is to say that the 3 and 3 Comets will have a fight on their hands on Friday night.
