Vermilion Catholic in search of its first win over Kaplan

In the last two meetings between the Vermilion Catholic Eagles and the Kaplan Pirates, one team combined to score 62 points and the other team only scored 28.
With its wide-open offense, one would think it would be the Eagles who scored the 62 points and Kaplan who scored 28. Think again.
In 2015, Kaplan cruised to a 32-15 win over VC. The next year in a rainstorm, Kaplan won 30-13.
Tonight in Kaplan, the Eagles (2-1) look to get their first win over the Pirates (2-1). Kick-off is set for 7 p.m.
