Tough playoff tests loom for MSL teams, St. Viator
It’s football playoff time, what better way to celebrate the occasion than to gather in homes and at local restaurants on Saturday night to find out about about the opening-round matchups. Barrington, Fremd, Rolling Meadows and Hersey each earned another postseason voyage after qualifying last season. Palatine and St. Viator, meanwhile, return to the playoffs after a one-year absence. Palatine, Barrington and Fremd all qualified in 8A, which is loaded with talented teams this year. All three of those Mid-Suburban League teams drew tough assignments in the first round in the brutal North bracket.
