No. 12 seed New Trier (6-3) visits No. 5 seed Glenbrook South (7-2)
at 7 p.m. Friday in a Class 8A battle. The Titans won their
regular-season CSL South meeting 21-10 Sept. 30 in Glenview. The winner
will play No. 4 Bartlett (7-2) or No. 13 Lyons Township (5-4).
Three-time defending Class 8A state champion and No. 2 Maine South (9-0) plays No. 15 Curie (5-4) at 12:30 p.m. Saturday at Lane Stadium in a Class 8A game. Despite being a higher seed, Maine South will not play at home in the first two rounds as a result of IHSA sanctions against the program following incidents during last year’s state playoffs. With a victory, the Hawks would meet No. 7 Stevenson (7-2) or No. 10 York (6-3).
No. 16 Evanston (5-4) visits No. 1 Loyola (9-0) at 1 p.m. Saturday in a Class 8A game in Wilmette. The Wildkits lost to the Ramblers 40-0 in the season opener Aug. 26. The winner plays No. 8 Taft (7-2) or No. 9 Dunbar (6-3).
