In this Week 5 Matchup, we’re taking a look at the Peotone Blue Devils (3-1) vs the Wilmington Wildcats (4-0). Both of these teams have talented players on both sides of the ball. Peotone is coming off of a tough loss against Lisle and Wilmington is coming off of a great win against Coal City that went down to the wire. Let’s dive into the preview for this Week 5 Matchup going down on Friday, April 16th.


Peotone was shut down last week not putting up any points against Lisle, that being said the Blue Devils are physical and aggressive in the run game with their four-back rotation. Heading into this game, the Blue Devils are recovering from injuries so that is going to be something to keep an eye on. Ben Balmer and Ryan Moe might end up being the go-to backs in this game with TJ Chenoweth and Dawson Piper being questionable for this game. Either way, look for Peotone to stay with their double-wing offensive attack and to come out swinging against powerhouse Wilmington.

Wilmington showcased their perseverance and dominance in last week's win against Coal City with their comeback win. Look
