Trinity came off its big win against St. Xavier (OH) with another solid win

scheduled to play Treasure Coast before its bye week, but that game was
cancelled. University will have nearly three weeks between games.

the ship against Passaic County this week.
Last: Lost to St. Joseph Regional 38-37

|Bishop Gorman (3-1) Las Vegas, NV
Bishop Gorman beat a Servite team that is a shadow of its former self. The
Gaels won't be challenged the rest of the season. If anyone plays them
within 20, I'd consider it an upset.

The Tigers put another dominating performance on the books against

If there was any doubt Washington was back on track after its convincing win
over Cedar Hill two weeks ago, those questions were answered as the
Tornadoes blew out a good Jones team from Orlando. It's a quick turnaround
this from Saturday to Thursday, but Washington should handle Edison.
