Maine West (1-3) at Deerfield (2-2)
When: 7:30 p.m. today at Adams Field
Last week: Maine West lost to Maine South 49-0; Deerfield lost to Evanston 39-10
Outlook: Parity appears to be the theme in the CSL North behind favorite Glenbrook North, and Maine West hopes this is a game where it can emerge as one of the division's top challengers. "We feel it's kind of wide open but we feel we still have to fight to get to the top," said Maine West coach Chris Hare. Deerfield, which beat 0-4 Zion-Benton 27-20 in its opener and got a forfeit win over Julian, has gone from a spread to a flex-bone double slot where RB Jeremy Kritt has had games of 95 and 90 yards. "We're mirror images of each other," Hare said. "It's a tough offense to stop and that's why we both went to it." Deerfield LBs JR Rothing and Kyle Friedman will look to stop QB Ziggy Krycka and RB Calvin Williams; Maine West will be without WR Jezz Buluran for a second straight week as he waits for MRI results on his knee. Deerfield won 48-0 and 45-0 the last two years and has won nine of the last 10 meetings.
