Summary:

 

This will be a rematch, as Alden defeated the Wildcats 28-7 in week 4 for their 7th consecutive victory over Depew. Other than a loss to Lancaster, Depew dominated opponents (I.e. defeated Eden by scores of 45-16 and 39-17, while Alden had to come back form an early deficit to beat the Raiders 22-15.) The Bulldogs have won 39 consecutive games against Section VI opponents and look to win their 4th consecutive Title. If the Wildcats get solid play from the QB position, they can beat the Bulldogs. The route, however, to a Class B Sectional Title goes through the Bulldogs since they have the "Stoldt factor" (who has accounted for 55 TDs and 3,400 yards in his career.)
