Falcons fly into West Aurora showdown
WHEATON – While the matchup with a 1-5 West Aurora team Friday night might not seem big on paper, it will hold a little extra importance for Wheaton North.
With the Blackhawks moving from the DuPage Valley Conference to the Upstate Eight Conference after this year, this could be the last time these two teams meet for quite a while.
“We had a program meeting on Monday,” said Wheaton North coach Joe Wardynski, “where we talked to the whole program at once. We talked about the tradition at West Aurora, they have been playing football since the 1890s. It’s a great place to play a football game and it’s a great atmosphere for football.
