Luers tuning up

Bishop Luers weaved through a regular season that included five Class 5A teams, two 3A opponents and finished with its only 4A opponent in Bishop Dwenger.

Following the Knights' SAC clinching 26-15 win over the Saints on Friday, Luers is 7-1 (8-0 on the field with a forfeit loss to South Side).

It's safe to say the two-time defending Class 2A state champion and top-ranked Knights are the team to beat as the playoffs begin next week.

Possessing an offense that ran for 324 yards against Dwenger and having a quarterback is on verge of becoming the SAC's all-time leading passer in James Knapke (144 away) and a defense that allowed Dwenger (5-4, 4-3) about 150 yards of total offense, Luers has an edge on the 2A competition.

"I am glad (race for SAC title) is over, and we can move onto the playoffs and see where we fit in," Luers coach Matt Lindsay said.
