SPP (4-1) has had the upper-hand against the Crusaders (3-2) lately, having won five of the last six meetings.  Two of those St. Peter’s wins were in the Non-Public Group 4 semifinals in 2014 and last year.  The Marauders won the state title in 2014.

Bergen Catholic will be coming-off its bye week, while St. Peter’s has won its last two games in come-from-behind fashion against nationally-ranked Paramus Catholic, the team that beat them in the state championship game last year, and DePaul on Friday 22-21.

The biggest mover this week is Pope John XXIII, which jumps two spots to No. 5 after taking-down Paramus Catholic, which was ranked No. 52 in the nation coming into the game. PC drops to No. 6.

The Lions, who are No. 98 nationally, will look to climb higher this week when they face No. 3 St. Joseph Regional (Montvale), which is coming-off its own come-from-behind 16-15 win over No. 9 Don Bosco Prep.  St. Joe’s is ranked No. 46 in our Top 100.
