+++The Ste. Genevieve Dragons are hosting the Fredericktown Blackcats in our J-98 WebTV “Game of the Week. Both teams are heading in opposite directions in the early going as the Dragons have lost their last two games. On the flip side, the Blackcats have dominated their last two opponents winning 41-14 over Herculaneum and 28-13 over Perryville. After limiting the Pirates to 90 yards through the air, Fredericktown coach Paul Sauer knows Ste Gen presents a bigger challenge offensively.


+++Ste Gen coach Ken Weik says their biggest focus is slowing down running back Matt Williams.


+++With confidence sky high for Fredericktown after back-to-back wins and Ste. Gen putting up huge numbers offensively, this game could come down to the wire. The Blackcats will look to surpass their 2 wins from all of last year with a victory and the Dragons will try to even their record at 2-2.

+++Kickoff for the J-98 WebTV Game of the Week is at 7 and don’t forget to tune into the Fliegs Equipment Pre Game Show starting at 6:15.
