PARK RIDGE — Maine East is hoping to turn things around this season after going 1-8 last year.
The Blue Demons, coached by Gabe Corey, have their first chance to equal last year’s win total when they head into the city to take on Schurz at Lane Stadium at noon Saturday.
The Bulldogs were 5-4 last season and beat Maine East 20-14 to open the 2011 campaign.
The Blue Demons’ lone win last year came in Week 8 with a 27-7 victory over arch-rival Maine West.
It will be a family affair for Maine East this season as Corey has four sons playing on varsity: senior Gabe, junior Alex, sophomore George and freshman Woody.
