While the Panthers are on a four-game win streak, Mater Dei suffered their first loss of the season last week. Reitz is 5-3 overall, 4-2 in the SIAC and 4-1 in the city while the Wildcats are 7-1, 5-1, 5-0, respectively, but you can throw out the records when it comes to this game…it’s the West Side War! Added value is that, should the Panthers get the win, they would share the city title with Mater Dei (and potentially Central, as well).
Reitz leads the all-time series, which began in 1952, 43-17. The two teams have played for the West Side Nut Club Trophy since 1970.
