St. Benedict Prep (N.J.) vs. Salesianum (3-1-2) at Caravel, 7:30 p.m. Last year the Prep was ranked No. 1 in the nation, and the Sals shocked them with a 1-0 overtime win on the road. Salesianum is not as strong this year but are coming off an impressive win over Kingsway (N.J.), 4-2.




Salesianum (3-2) at Martin Luther King (Pa.), 6 p.m. The Sals face another strong out of state team and this has the potential of being the NBC 10 game of the week.

Caravel (3-2) at St. Elizabeth (2-3), 7 p.m. The Vikings are coming off a nice win last week and now face the tough Buccaneers, who grabbed a win at Archmere last week.


Appoquinimink (1-4) at Archmere (3-2), 4 p.m. This homecoming game for the Auks is important as Appo is a Division I team will provide much-needed points when playoff teams are determined. This past Saturday, Archmere lost a tough one to No. 2 Caravel, 23-13. The Auks got on the board right away as J.M. Nocket returned the opening kickoff 90 yards for a touchdown. Both defenses were stellar. Nocket threw a 14-yard TD pass to Patrick Udovich with 13 seconds left in the half for a 13-3 lead. Trailing, 16-13, the Auks were inside the Caravel 10 yard line, but the Bucs Mandela Montgomery intercepted a pass in the end zone and returned it 100 yards to make the final Caravel 23, Archmere 13.
