Home is sweet to Dwenger-Lowell

Home-field advantage has played a pretty important role in the budding postseason rivalry between Bishop Dwenger and Lowell.

The Saints and Red Devils have played in the Class 4A semistate each of the past two years and will make it a third next Saturday.

Two years ago, Lowell won 10-7 at home, while Dwenger won last season 38-22 at Zollner Stadium.

This time, it will be back at Lowell.

"We went up there two years ago and were unsuccessful," Dwenger coach Chris Svarczkopf said. "We have learned a lot of lessons since then, and it is not very often that you get a second chance in life. We want to make good on it."

A difference from two years ago will be the day of week, with the game previously at Lowell being played on Friday.

Last year's game, as well as this year, will be held on Saturday because of the distance between the two schools.

The Saints (13-0) come into the game ranked No. 2, while the Red Devils (12-1) are No. 7.
