9. Oswego (7-0, 9): If you wondered how Oswego would deal with the imposing defense brought forth by its district rival, Oswego East, the answer was quick and unequivocal. Up next: vs. Joliet Central.
8. Nazareth (6-1, 2): It will be interesting to see how Nazareth responds to its first loss to a team that seems to have its number. Up next: vs. Joliet Catholic.
7. Simeon (7-0, 7): Simeon got the week off because of a forfeit, odds are it won’t slow the momentum of the Wolverines at all. Up next: at Taft.
6. Mount Carmel (6-1, 6): Program mentor Frank Lenti, now at St. Laurence, gives this game a little more juice. Up next: at St. Laurence.
5. Maine South (6-1, 5): Very quietly Maine South has maneuvered through an imposing regular season nicely. Another big challenge lurks here. Up next: at No. 21 New Trier.
