It’s a winner-take-all game for the I-55 Conference championship as the St. Pius Lancers face the Valle Catholic Warriors Friday evening in Ste. Genevieve on the MyMoInfo SportsStream.

Both teams enter at 7-1, but the Lancers are red-hot, having not lost since the season opener against Windsor.

Lancers head coach Dan Oliver says his team is aware they have a chance to do something special.

Oliver says while Valle Catholic has been the focus, the Lancers have their eyes on the postseason as well, and that’s why they’re worried about doing what they do best.

Valle Catholic is ranked sixth in the state in Class 1 and has not lost since Week Three.

Warriors head coach Judd Naeger says while his team has succeeded, they’re feeling even better with the recent return of their senior starting quarterback.

The Warriors have been stingy on defense all year, but Naeger believes his team is getting ready to see one of the best offenses they’ll face all year.

The Lancers will look to become the first team other than the Warriors to win the I-55 Conference since Herculaneum in 2012.
Pregame coverage for St. Pius-Valle Catholic starts at 6 Friday night on the MyMoInfo SportsStream.
