While York may have a new football coach, one thing that hasn’t changed is its schedule.
The Dukes will have a carbon-copy of their 2017 schedule this fall. York, under the direction of new coach Mike Fitzgerald, is coming off a 1-8 season and a tough six-year stretch where it went a combined 14-40 since last making the playoffs in 2011.
York kicks off the 2018 sea-son at home on Friday, Aug. 24 at 7:30 p.m. against New Trier out of Winnetka in a non-conference game.
The Dukes then head to Addison in Week 2 on Friday, Aug. 31 at 7:30 p.m. to face Addison Trail in a West Sub-urban Conference crossover game.
York begins West Suburban Conference Silver Division play on Friday, Sept. 7 at 7:30 p.m. at Lyons Township at the Bennett Field on the Lyons South campus.
The Dukes return home Fri-day, Sept. 14 at 7:30 p.m. to face defending WSC Silver champion Glenbard West.
York’s only afternoon regular season contest occurs on Saturday, Sept. 22 at noon when the Dukes face Hinsdale Central in Hinsdale.
York’s traditional game against neighbor Willow-brook happens in Week 6 on Friday, Sept. 28 at 7:30 p.m. Willowbrook won the WSC Gold title last year and ad-vanced deep into the IHSA playoffs.
The Dukes hit the road in Week 7 for a Friday, Oct. 5 7:30 p.m. contest at Oak Park-River Forest. York re-turns home for the final two regular-season games of the year. York hosts Proviso West on Friday, Oct. 12 at 7:30 p.m. and welcomes Downers Grove North on Friday, Oct. 19 at 7:30 p.m.
York will face seven teams this season that made the playoffs in 2017. From the WSC Silver, Glenbard West, Hinsdale Central, Lyons Township, Downers Grove North and Oak Park-River Forest all were playoff teams a year ago, as was Willow-brook, which advanced to the state quarterfinals last season. New Trier also made the playoffs and finished with a 6-4 record last year.
