Kaneland @ DeKalb preview
Kaneland (4-2, 3-1) vs. DeKalb (1-5, 0-4) 1 p.m. at DeKalb High School
Saturday afternoon’s contest could make for a rude homecoming if you’re
Kaneland will be raring to get the offense going after submitting its lowest
output of the season on Friday in a 21-7 loss to Glenbard South, while
DeKalb is hosting homecoming on the grounds of DHS after losing a 55-0 game
to Geneva on Friday.
The Knights will be coming off of their worst offensive output since an Oct.
17, 2008 matchup with Geneva, 42-7. The Knights were victims of a Geneva
team winning its 17th Western Sun outing in a row.
While this marks the final WSC meeting between the Knights and Barbs, the
two teams will still be conference mates in the new Northern Illinois Big 12
beginning in 2010. Kaneland has won the previous three meetings with the
Barbs by a combined score of 133-28.
The Barbs have lost five in a row after kicking the Coach Marty Sanders era
off in style with a 38-12 win in week one over Ottawa. Sanders’ previous
head coaching stop was the Kewanee High School Boilermakers from 2003-2007
in which the NCIC school went 11-34.
