Contract has been signed between Mater Dei and Arizona 5A state champ Centennial of Peoria for Week 2, Sept. 6 (in Arizona - potential national TV game per article) ...https://www.azcentral.com/story/sports/ ... 954515002/
Peoria Centennial coach Richard Taylor says in the article that “I think (MD is) looking for an easy victory; the following week they go to Washington D.C. to play DeMatha HS. We’re kind of like NAU playing ASU.”
Aside from the interesting self-motivational quote, he has MD’s schedule incorrect. They are set to play St. Frances Academy of Baltimore the following week, in the Trinity v. USA showcase at Bosco (Sat Sept 14).
Regardless of date, this is the first I’ve heard about a MD-DeMatha matchup. Monarchs are rumored to be playing DeMatha’s league rival instead, national power St. John’s, on an undetermined date.
