>>Maroons Host Warrensburg-Latham for Homecoming
It's a must win for the Clinton Maroons tonight as the Warrensburg-Latham Cardinals come to town for Homecoming.
After a disappointing 26-0 defeat at Shelbyville last Friday night, the Maroons enter tonight's Homecoming matchup 3-4 and need to win-out to qualify for the postseason for a second straight year.
Warrensburgh-Latham is 4-3 and looking to get themselves a postseason birth under coach Scott Godfrey.

>>Sages At Rantoul
The Monticello Sages will yet again put their undefeated record on the line tonight when they travel to Rantoul.
The winless Eagles and a one-win Monmouth Roseville team are the only teams between an undefeated regular season for the Sages, who are 7-0 entering play tonight.
The Sages will face some injuries heading into action tonight. Defensive starters Jack Leinhart and Johnny Dawson are questionable after suffering injuries in last week's 39-14 win over Champaign St. Thomas More, which clinched an Okaw Valley title for the Sages.
Offensive lineman Noah Zimmerman is doubtful for Friday's contest.
