Kaneland football’s 2009 slate features the same slate, save one.

No longer suiting up against Marmion Academy of Aurora, the Knights will square off against visiting Huntley High School on Friday, Sept. 4.

The usual opening contest of Kaneland-Burlington Central stays status quo, with the ‘09 version taking place in Maple Park on Friday, Aug. 28.

The final Western Sun Conference schedule kicks off at Rochelle on, Friday, Sept. 11, followed by another road contest at Sycamore on Friday, Sept. 18.

Batavia comes to town on Sept. 25, as does Glenbard South on Oct. 2.

The final three games of the season feature the Knights headed to DeKalb High School, rather than Huskie Stadium, on Saturday, Oct. 10, at 1 p.m. for the Barbs’ homecoming, Oct. 16 vs. Geneva for Senior Night and a jaunt to Yorkville on Friday, Oct. 23.

Coach Tom Fedderly’s Knights finished 5-4 in the regular season, with a 23-21 loss coming at the hands of future Northern Illinois Big 12 mate Sterling in the first round of the 2008 playoffs.
