This week’s WWL Radio Prep Game of the Week features two teams coming off big wins last week from the Catholic League, as the St. Augustine Purple Knights take on the Jesuit Blue Jays in a District contest at the Shrine on Airline. 

The St. Augustine Purple Knights come into this game off of a 56-0 thrashing of the Capitol Lions.  St. Augustine had a balanced attack both on offense and defense.  The Purple Knights had 304 yards of offense and held Capitol to only 108 yards. This was the 2nd shutout for the Purple Knights this year having shut out McDonogh #35  6-0. 

The Jesuit Blue Jays likewise took care of business last week beating up on a Central Wildcat team 42-10.  Led by Running Back Michael Torry’s 83yd. opening kickoff return for a touchdown, the Blue Jays coasted the rest of the way.  The Blue Jays also had a balanced attack mounting 278 yds of offense, 162 yds rushing and 116 yards passing.  Defensively for the Blue Jays, Ethan Kerrigan had 2 interceptions for the night. 

Both teams will be looking to start district play with a win, but as we all know the Catholic League is one of the toughest districts in Class 5A. 

Join myself, Tony 'The Ironman' D’Amico with the color and Brad 'The Esquire' Luminais handling the play by play this Friday beginning at 7:00 p.m. on WWL Radio 105.3fm HD2, on or the WWL Radio app on your smartphone.  This should be a very tight and hard fought battle in district play.
