Glenbard West (3-0, 1-0) at Downers Grove North (2-1, 0-1)

Game time: 7:30 p.m. Friday.

                                                                                                                                                                                                                       
 

The quick hit: Glenbard West's offensive diversity is starting to shine. Last week quarterback Brian Cochrane completed 13 of 14 passes for 185 yards and 3 touchdowns while running back Sam Brodner added 4 scores to give him 10 on the season.

Downers Grove South (0-3, 0-1) at Addison Trail (2-1, 1-0)

Game time: 7:30 p.m. Friday.

The quick hit: The Blazers' offense is struggling with consistency as their inexperienced line settles in. Darrion Conrad offered an interesting look behind center in the Wildcat. Linebacker Josh Simko continues to be extremely disruptive for Addison Trail.

Hinsdale Central (3-0, 1-0) at York (1-2, 0-1)

Game time: 7:30 p.m. Friday.

The quick hit: Linebacker Matt Bradley, safety Frank Saltiel and lineman Frank Rayis have led a dominant Hinsdale Central defense. Lucas Alexander and York's punishing ground game aims to chew the clock and keep the Red Devils' potent offense off the field.

Willowbrook (1-2, 0-1) at Hinsdale South (2-1, 1-0)

Game time: 7:30 p.m. Friday.

The quick hit: Despite last week's crushing loss to Addison Trail, Willowbrook saw some major bright spots, starting with the quarterback pressure led by Elijah Rochel. That'll come in handy again while facing talented Hornets quarterback Sean McCormack.

Lyons (3-0) at Leyden (2-1)

When: Friday, 7 p.m.

The quick hit: This should be a great test for Leyden, which has played quite well in the first third of the season. The young Eagles have shown tremendous growth in matching last year's win total. Lyons has looked very good to open their part of the season. Leyden piled up 44 points last week against Proviso East thanks to the play of running back David Demarais. Lyons has posted a pair of shutouts including last week's 36-0 win over Proviso West.
