No. 2 Chaminade-Madonna & No. 5 Northwestern Kickoff Week 3

The one thing that both Hollywood Chaminade-Madonna (2-0) and Miami Northwestern (2-0) fully understand is if you don’t play a challenging schedule, very few people will respect the talent you have.

So far this year, both programs have had huge games to prepare for tonight’s (7:00) meeting at Traz Powell Stadium.

The No. 2 Lions (2-0) and the No. 5 Bulls will meet in a game that could easily be the best showcase of Week 3.

Both coaches are certainly used to the spotlight – as each program has state championship experience, especially head coach Dameon Jones and his football team which is bidding to get to the state finals for the sixth consecutive season – while head coach Max Edwards and his always talented program wants to get back in the mix.

Plenty of talent on both sides of the ball as this showcase contest is expected to draw quite a crowd at “The Mecca” – which has been home to many, many memorable contests through the years.
