Two football powerhouses in Missouri’s 6th Class, at least one of these two programs have played in the state final the past five years, combining for four championships. These division foes play yearly, and often find themselves in a rematch in the postseason. Just last season, the Christian Brother College Cadets took down the De Smet Spartans in both matchups, on the way to their fourth state championship, in a season where they only lost once. This season, De Smet looks to get back on track and take down their division rival while working to make it back to the state final that they played in the two years before. There is always a lot at stake when these two teams take the field, and it will be no different story when they meet this season.
