(Festus) An I-55 Conference showdown will help determine a league champion on this week’s edition of Jefferson County Friday Night Football.
Valle Catholic visits St. Pius Friday on KJFF with the Warriors looking to win an 8th straight conference title.
Valle is having another spectacular season, with an 8-0 record and the number-two ranking in the state in Class 3.
And Warriors head coach Judd Naeger says his team continues to get even better.
Sophomore quarterback Chase Fallert has orchestrated an offense that is piling up almost 54 points per game.
But Naeger knows that St. Pius has some past and present tricks up its sleeve.
After a 2-1 start to the season, St. Pius has lost four of its last 5 games and is looking to regain its rhythm.
Lancers head coach Dan Oliver says the unpredictable nature of the 2020 season has made that difficult.
Pius junior running back Nate Ruble has been a force this season, with 960 yards from scrimmage and 10 total touchdowns.
Oliver believes it’s a matter of the rest of the team finding some momentum heading into the postseason.
The Warriors knocked off the Lancers 24-6 last season to add to an impressive 17-game win streak in the series.
Valle Catholic meets St. Pius once again on Jefferson County Friday Night Football.
Coverage begins at 6 Friday evening with the Flieg’s Equipment Pregame Show on AM 1400 KJFF.
