The Old Settlement Showdown Heads To The State Playoffs Friday Night On J98

(Ste. Genevieve) The Old Settlement Showdown is going where previous matches have never gone before: into the state playoffs. #3 Ste. Genevieve will head to Father John Dempsey Field to take on #2 Valle Catholic in the Class 3 District 2 Semifinals Friday. The Warriors won the week 2 matchup 46-0, but Valle coach Judd Naeger sees a different Dragons team this time around.

Ste. Gen has been rolling of late. The Dragons are on a four-game win streak and haven’t scored less than 55 points in each game. But Ste. Gen coach Jay Pope isn’t expecting a back-and-forth battle with the number-two team in the state in Class 3.

Valle, meanwhile, had a bye last week. Naeger would’ve liked to play instead.

Ste. Gen did not have a bye. They beat #6 Bayless 56-8 last Friday in the district quarterfinals. But Pope says his team is playing their best ball ahead of this rematch.

The undefeated 9-0 Valle Warriors host the 7-3 Ste. Gen Dragons Friday at 7 o’clock on J-98.
