Game of the Week Blog- Reitz vs. Mater Dei

The 2015 high school football regular season could not possibly end on a higher note.

Reitz vs. Mater Dei. 8-0 vs. 8-0. Number-1 in Class 4-A vs. number-1 in Class 2-A.The West Side Nut Club Trophy and the S-I-A-C title on the line. And most importantly, 13,000 rowdy fans packing the Reitz Bowl.

The Wildcats hold a slight advantage in recent years of the rivalry, having won the last two matchups, and 3 out of the last four. And the last three showdowns, have been decided by an average of 5 points per game.

As for this year, both Reitz and Mater Dei have scored about 6 touchdowns per contest. The Panthers defense has given up just 14 points per game, as opposed to 22 for Mater Dei.

Even though they're undefeated, both teams have had multiple close calls in 2015. The Wildcats beat Tri-West in a thriller by a touchdown, held on to beat Harrison by 4, and survived another close call against Castle.

Reitz also struggled against the Knights, gutting out a 5-point victory. The Panthers also nearly lost to Memorial, scoring the winning touchdown in the final minute.

It's nearly impossible to predict an outcome for this one, but I'll give it a shot.

Mater Dei barely extends it's winning streak in the series, in a classic game that lives up to the hype. And the West Side Nut Club Trophy stays with the Wildcats.

Prediction: Mater Dei- 41, Reitz- 38
