Montini, Maine South to meet in 2013

| 2 Comments | No TrackBacks

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.

Rough stretch for Prairie Ridge

Prairie Ridge started seven juniors and sophomores in last year's Class 6A title game against Peoria Richwoods, which the Wolves won 35-14.

But two of those players won't be with Prairie Ridge when preseason workouts begin on Aug. 8.

Jordan Getzelman, who ran for 175 yards and two touchdowns against Richwoods, recently committed to play baseball at Missouri and he's skipping his final football season to prepare for that.

Then came the news that Nick Lanaski, a starting linebacker a year ago, is expected to miss the entire 2012 season after suffering a broken vertebra.

"It's been a tough week," Wolves coach Chris Schremp said.

Prairie Ridge will look for its other running backs to pick up the slack in Getzelman's absence and will rely on Northern Illinois-bound Sean Folliard to pace the defense.
