Don Bosco Prep and its coach, Greg Toal, pictured above right, had little trouble in its regular-season opener Saturday, beating Mission Viejo, Calif. 35-7.
It's the 36th win in a row for the Ironmen, who head to Hawkins Stadium to play Manatee on Friday and are ranked No. 1 in the nation by USA Today, ESPNRise and MaxPreps.
Misson Viejo (1-1) entered the game ranked sixth in the county by ESPN and fourth in the West by USA Today's Super 25 regional rankings.
The Hurricanes (1-1) and Ironmen play at 6 p.m. to kick off the Manatee Memorial Hospital Suncoast Challenge.
Tampa Plant and Bergen Catholic (N.J.) will play Game 2 beginning at 8:30 p.m.
The last time the nation's top-ranked team came to Hawkins Stadium was December 2009, when Fort Lauderdale St. Thomas Aquinas played Manatee in a Class 5A state semifinal.
Manatee ended Aquinas' 37-game winning streak with a 28-20 win.
