McDONOGH 35 AT ST. AUGUSTINE, Sept. 21

The longtime New Orleans rivals, separated by about a dozen blocks, played last year following a one-year hiatus after Hurricane Katrina, and St. Augustine lost 33--6 to the Roneagles en route to a 1--9 season. Now the Purple Knights are off to a 2--1 start, while a young McDonogh 35 squad is 0--3 and has scored just 14 points. A capacity crowd of 27,000 is expected at Tad Gormley Stadium; look out for St. Augustine running back N'Gal Tillman (above), who had 136 yards and a TD in a win over Bonnabel two weeks ago.
