Mother Nature showed up and showed out this weekend in the Chicagoland area as it was ABSOLUTELY gorgeous football weather. In the end, teams made their presence felt while others who struggled early are making a strong surge.
St. Patrick flexed Friday night!
The Shamrocks dominated from the kickoff to the final whistle defeating the host ESCC team Marian Catholic 41-0.
This got started right away when sophomore Marcus Wright sprinted the down the field for their first score. On the next possession, the Shamrocks scored again but in the air on a 51 yard pass from senior Anthony Mazzenga to Jonathan Hamilton. And literally less than 3 minutes later, Wright scored again, this time on a 32 yard pass from Mazzenga. Right before half, Joey Solak intercepted a quick pass, Mazzenga tossed yet another touchdown to Andrew Edgar making the score 27-0. Edgar would score again in the third quarter this time from 63-yards out. The final score came with a running clock when Hamilton hauled in a 36 yard TD pass. Talk about an offensive explosing for the Shamrocks.
A bright note for the spartans came from Christian Simmons, who gained 62 yards on 12 carries for Marian (1-3, 0-2 ESCC). For highlights from this contest via CSNSport, visit http://bit.ly/2cQtNIw

Richards wins two in a row…
Talk about a turnaround as Bulldogs wins their second game in a row defeating the Astros 38-10 in a South Suburban Red contest Friday night.
Richards (2-2, 2-0) senior Anthony Quinn led the way rushing for over 100 yards and three touchdowns from 40, 1 and 39 yards.
“I want my team to do good,” Quinn said with a smile afterward. “I want to do whatever I can to make that happen.”
Bulldogs quarterback Jake Moran finished the game going 9-for-15 for 107 yards and scored on a 5-yard run and tossed a 42-yard TD pass to Noah Petrusevski.
Shepard, who loss for the very first time this season (3-1, 1-1), scored on a 41-yard field goal by Mike Iturbe and a 78-yard pass play from quarterback Jack Carberry to Rishard Blake.
Crusaders cruise Friday night…
Call it an old school game featuring the Crusaders (4-0), but in the end, whew…. they defeated Montini 42-7. Behind the outstanding play of quarterback Dino Borrelli, who reached the final score at half by tossing s-i-x touchdown passes.
He had a Madden video game type of night going 14 of 15 passes for 331 yards and the six TDs. His lone incompletion came when he threw away a pass to avoid a sack.
“It was definitely the best game of my life,” Borrelli said. “It was awesome. We practiced all those plays all work and then they actually worked in the game. It was a great feeling.”
Ricky Smalling finished the game with 5 catches for 186 yards and three touchdown passes.
The Vikings continues there winning ways….
Senior QB Bryant Wright scored s-e-v-e-n times in the high scoring contest against Lockport as the won 53-24. He took there in on the ground and tossed four others.
“I haven’t had that type of run-and-pass game,” said Wright, who finished 7-for-11 passing for 209 yards and rushed for 153 yards on 13 carries. “I just took what they gave me. That was my first time running for three touchdowns.”
In the end, the Vikings had over 500 yards of offense and the punter had the evening off as they didn’t punt one time.
H-F remains undefeated at 4-0, 2-0, while Lockport is now 3-1, 1-1.
St Laurence holds on against stingy St. Rita
In a nailbiter the Vikings (3-1) defeated the Mustangs 45-42 primarily on a deflected pass not intended for senior Levy Hamer, but he took it in to score.
“I was in the right place at the right time,” Hamer said. “I was there as a safety net. I live for those type of moments.”
St. Rita quarterback Jake Zylman finished the contest going 11-for-20 for over 200 yards and connected with Tim Zaleski twice. Zylman also rushed for over 130 yards.
It was the first victory for St. Laurence over the Mustangs since 1987, a span of 12 games.
