ST PAUL’S: St. Paul’s is coming off of a 35-0 victory against Fontainebleau High School last Friday. The Wolves held the Bulldog offense to no points, and it is the first time Fontainebleau has finished a game scoreless. St. Paul’s has proven this year that they have a top notch defense. The offense also stepped up towards the end of the end of the year by putting up 35 points, the most against a district opponent this year. The offense will be the key for the Wolves to win. The Wolves are going to need support from the fans to help them pull off the upset
HOLY CROSS: The Tigers are coming off of a 42-41 win against St. Augustine last Friday. Holy Cross is 5-5 in one of the hardest districts in the state, consisting of John Curtis, Rummel, Brother Martin, and Jesuit. Holy Cross has shown strength from both sides of the ball in certain games. They held the number one Catholic League seed Rummel offense to 17 points despite losing the game. Their offense scored 42 against St. Augustine as well. Holy Cross will have to find a way to perform well on both sides of the ball in order to win against the Wolves in the first round of the Catholic League Playoffs.
