Revenge is the name of the game this week for the Broncos, who seek to get Marmion back for a tough loss last season, the Cadets’ first over the Broncos since 2009. Both Montini and Marmion are 2-0 but this game will be the first big test of the season for each team. Look for Marmion to employ its power-sweep running game against the Montini defense, which has forced three safeties in the first two games without giving up any points. The Bronco offense will look to spread the field against the Cadet defense, with Fedanzo getting the lion’s share of carries on the ground. Special teams proved to be the difference in last season’s contest, and could play a major role in this game.
In lower-level action, the sophomore Broncos host Marmion at 5:00, while the freshman team travels to Aurora for a 9:30 AM kickoff on Saturday, with both levels also looking to maintain their undefeated seasons.
