Illinois Games of the Week - Week Two

Posted by Jacob Plunkett on 9/1/16 1:34 PM



Last week was just a taste.

Maybe the team looked a little sloppy. Too many penalties. Too many missed tackles.

No worries - the season is still in its infancy. 1-0 doesn't guarantee a playoff spot, and 0-1 doesn't mean the sky is falling. 

Heck, some teams haven't even played their first game yet. 

So sit back, relax, and enjoy this preview on a couple of the top Week 2 games on the NFHS Network.


Mount Carmel Chicago vs. Gary West Side

Friday, September 2nd - 7:00pm CT

Coming off their season-opening victory against Taft at Soldier Field in Week One, Mt. Carmel looks to keep rolling as they host Gary West Side from Indiana.


Joliet Catholic vs. Wheaton North

Friday, September 2nd - 7:30pm CT

Last season, Joliet Catholic's star running back, Michael Johnson ran for 242 yards as the Hilltoppers beat the Falcons 34-14. Wheaton North is looking for a little revenge, and they won't have to deal with the graduated Johnson.


Watch these games and MUCH MORE all season long on the NFHS Network!
