|Manatee (6-0) Bradenton, FL
Manatee had little trouble with a solid Cypress Bay team. Cypress Bay
made the Hurricanes sweat a bit as they kept it within two scores for
most of the second half. A trip to Venice should be Manatee's best test
in the last month.

|John Curtis (7-0) River Ridge, LA
The predication used last week to describe the likely outcome of the
game against Newman was "pummel". Curtis complied, handing
Newman a 50-0 beating. The Patriots are off this week, and 1-6 Clark
wishes they were off on the 26th as well.

|Trinity (8-0) Louisville, KY
Louisville Male used to be considered a scary game for Trinity. Those
days seem like a long time ago as the Shamrocks walloped Male in a 38-7
victory. At the beginning of the season, Trinity's matchup with
Archbishop Moeller looked like a game that could decide the FOX Sports
Next National Championship. That game lost some luster as Moeller
dropped a pair of games earlier this season, but the Crusaders got back
on track last week beating Indianapolis Cathedral 48-13.

|Bellevue (7-0) Bellevue, WA
Mount Si was undefeated coming into the game against No. 4 Bellevue.
They left the game defeated. Bellevue left little doubt about who was
the best team in Washington with a 49-10 victory. Bellevue has two games
left in the regular season that should amount to roughly 100-0 wins.
Last: Def Mount Si.

|Katy (6-0) Katy, TX
Most of the Top 10 has been feasting on cupcakes. Katy didn't want to
miss out and blew out Katy Taylor last week before they go and blowout
Seven Lakes this week. Katy isn't likely to be given a decent game until
11/3 against Cinco Ranch.

|St. Ignatius (8-0) Cleveland, OH
Here's hoping St. Ignatius enjoyed its trip to Niagra Falls last week as
St. Francis was no match for the Wildcats. The going will be tougher
this week as St. Xavier is going to be a handful coming off of a bitter
loss to St. Edward.

One streak was broken as Providence was the first to put up double

winning big. The latter streak is likely to continue this week, while
the former streak is likely to begin anew against 1-8 South Mecklenberg.

Good Counsel was efficient in its beating of Bishop McNamara with a 22-0

better than to overlook the 5-3 Cadets who have played well this season
even in losses.

Yes Bishop Gorman beat Good Counsel earlier this season. Yes they have
the same records, and yes Good Counsel has the better wins including
Bergen Catholic who beat Bishop Gorman but lost to Good Counsel. That's
about the only interesting thing to talk about with regards to Bishop
Gorman, because the rest of their season is a snoozer.

much better than its trip to Fairfield.

For years high school football fans in Georgia lamented Camden County's
easy region schedule. Well, the Wildcats are in arguably the toughest
region in the state, and Camden County continues to roll. Trips to
Lowndes and Colquitt County to finish the season loom large.

|St. Edward (8-0)
St. Edward got a modicum of revenge on St. Xavier who ended the Eagles'
season last year. St. Edward outlasted St. Xavier after jumping to a 24-9
halftime lead. Some teams start with a tough schedule, but St. Edward
finishes with Moeller and No. 6 St. Ignatius after having knocked St.
Xavier out of the Top 50.

Don Bosco appears to have found its way after a loss in its season
opener to Gilman handily beating a good Paramus Catholic team. Now the
Ironmen have a week off to get ready for Bergen Catholic who was just
beaten soundly by Cocoa (FL).

Grayson is rounding into shape and its Week 3 loss to Parkview is

better than Central Gwinnett and Berkmar did the last two weeks.

It isn't Gaffney's best year, but unlike most of the opponents on
Byrnes' schedule, the Indians don't cower in fear of the mighty Rebels.
Gaffney pulled off the upset. Byrnes is still on track to win a State
Championship, but any thoughts of a mythical national championship went
out the window.

Central had the week off last week. With the early schedule the Rockets

Central's caliber, Booker T. Washington laid the lumber to them in a

St. Joseph handled St. Peter's Prep in a tight game. The Green Knights

continue their quest towards a season finale against Don Bosco on 11/22.

Mission Viejo destroyed league rival San Clemente. The Diablos jumped
