Who wants it more?
We are putting High School Lites, Chicagoland's top prep sports show, in the hands of area football fans in our "Viewers' Choice Game of the Week." Fans will get the chance to pick one game that the NBC Sports Chicago (@NBCSPreps) crew will cover on Friday night. We will send our cameras to the game that gets the most votes; highlights of that game will appear on that night's "High School Lites" broadcast at 11 p.m. The show also live streams at NBCSportsChicago.com/watchlive. High School Lites will also have broadcast replays at 6:30 a.m. and 7:30 a.m. the following Saturday. This week, it's all about Bubble Watch. All of the featured games below include teams who are fighting to get on the right side of the playoff bubble. Which game is the most worthy for our cameras?
Evergreen Park at Tinley Park, 7:00 p.m.
Woodstock at Richmond-Burton, 7:00 p.m.
Elmwood Park at Aurora Central Catholic, 7:00 p.m.
Poll opens Monday at 12 p.m. and closes Thursday at 4 p.m. Here is what fans need to do to vote:
— Follow @NBCSPreps on Twitter.
— Note the "pinned Tweet" atop the @NBCSPreps feed. Vote for the game you want us to cover.
— Spread the word!
We will make an announcement on @NBCSPreps just after 4 p.m. Thursday with the official results of which game will be covered. And as a reminder, be sure to follow @NBCSPreps for updates on the "Viewers' Choice Game of the week," along with other high school sports news, scores and highlights this season.
High School Lites featured plenty of great action on Friday night as NBC Sports Chicago had highlights of many of the area's top matchups. There were a few clashes between ranked teams and a tight game in the MSL East as our own Edgy Tim was there for the finish.
