The 2012 season is still a week away, but there's already some big schedule news for next year.
According to Montini coach Chris Andriano, the Broncos and Maine South have agreed to meet in Week 1 of the 2013 season. It'll be a home game for Montini, which has won the past three Class 5A state titles. Maine South won three consecutive 8A championships before falling in the second round of the playoffs last fall.
Playing good competition is something that never gets old for the Broncos, according to Andriano.
"What [reason] have we got to duck [good teams]?" he said. "We really have everything to gain, nothing to lose."
Montini started the 2011 season with games against Palatine and eventual Class 8A runner-up Loyola and opens with games against big-school powers Palatine and Lincoln-Way East this year.
