RIVALRY WATCH: BOYS

 

The following matchups showcase some of the most heated rivalries of the 2014 season:

 

MARCH 11

Oak Park at Lyons
The Huskies travel to LaGrange to take on the Lions with the hopes of shaking things up in the West Suburban Conference in 2014. Lyons went undefeated in the WSC last season, but they'll have to be at their best if they want to avoid an early blemish on their record.


MARCH 19 & APRIL 16

Hoffman vs Schaumburg
Endless possibilities exist for both the Hawks and Saxons in 2014; regardless, they both know they will be in for a dogfight when the two teams meet in two key MSL West games on March 19 and April 16.


MARCH 19 & APRIL 16

Fremd vs Palatine
The stakes are always high whenever Fremd and Palatine get together for water polo matches; with both teams seeking a conference title in 2014...


MARCH 20 & APRIL 16

Prospect vs Wheeling
The two former Co-op teams meet twice in the regular season in contests that could play a major factor in the MSL East title race by the time the regular season wraps up.


MARCH 25 & APRIL 29

Curie vs Whitney Young
The Condors knocked off the Dolphins in the CPS title game last year, so expect Whitney Young to be revved up to prove they can once again be the biggest threat to Curie's conference title hopes.


MARCH 27

St Charles North at St Charles East
The North Stars appear ready to make some noise when the postseason rolls around in 2014; they have to avoid overlooking the revitalized Saints when the two teams meet for their annual rivalry game in late March.


APRIL 1 & APRIL 29

Lockport vs Sandburg
The heated rivalry between the Porters and Eagles continues in April when the SWSC Red teams meet twice for what could be conference bragging rights when all is said and done.


APRIL 7

Brother Rice at St Patrick

To be honest, I wish I was an alum of either Rice or Pats coming back home to see these two teams clash every year. The Catholic League teams square off in early April for a contest that never lacks interest or intensity and could be a major factor in the Catholic League standings at the end of the season.


APRIL 8

Stevenson at Mundelein
The Patriots look ready for another strong postseason run, but they know better than to overlook nearby Mundelein in a game that might decide the North Suburban Conference title and could also serve as sectional final preview when May rolls around.


APRIL 22

New Trier at Evanston
Can the Trevians continue their winning streak against Evanston on the road in a key CSL contest; expect the Wildkits to be clicking on all cylinders when the teams meet late in the season in a game that could  have major implications on the conference standings when all is said and done.
