Let conference play begin…..
H-F continues winning….
It was homecoming and the Vikings wanted to not only secure the victory for a serious school celebration but also to stay in first place within the Southwest Suburban Conference. In the end, they defeated foe Lincoln-Way West (4-1, 2-1) 27-11.
The Vikings are now 5-0, 3-0 in conference and totally owns the top spot.
The Vikings got on the board first on a 15-yard sprint by Herbert Hughes. Shortly after that, Bryant Wright connected with Justin Hall from 20-yard out.
Senior QB, Wright, finished with 81 yards on 18 carries and passed for 144.
Hughes then scored for a second time on a 5-yard run to make it 21-0 halfway through the second quarter. At the half, it was 21-2 – yup 2 as West snagged a safety on a bad snap which sailed into the endzone.
The Warriors had another safety on the Vikings as their defense tackled them in the endzone. And they did get on the board in a traditional fashion as Ryan Robbins scored on a short run in the third making the score 27-11.
Up next for H-F is Sandburg, while Lincoln-Way West will play Normal Community.
Rita wins as time expires…
Talk about a wonderful, nail-biting conference game… St Rita vs Mount Carmel goes back many many years but on this Friday… whew!!! tied at 28 with .6 seconds left, it came down to a field goal for the Mustangs….
Sophomore kicker Gavin Mottl converted a 34-yard field goal as time expired to give St. Rita (3-2, 2-0) a stunning 31-28 Catholic League Blue win over Mount Carmel (3-2, 0-2) after two timeouts.
“I was thinking that I was practicing kicks with my coach,” Mottl said. “I blocked out the noise of the crowd. Had no doubt I was going to make the kick.”
What a difference a week made for Mottl, who missed a potential game-tying 44-yard field last Saturday against St. Laurence. The week before that, Mottle converted a game-tying field goal as time expired against Providence that led to a 32-31 overtime win.
“The life of a kicker,” Mottl said. “It’s a roller coaster.”
St. Rita will play tough-as-nails Loyola Saturday; Mount Carmel will play at Brother Rice Friday night.
Lemont who… you better recognize the school soon!!!!
Still under the radar Lemont continues their winning ways as they defeat conference foe Oak Forest 38-0 Friday night.
They have one the stingiest defenses this season only giving up 38 points through five games.
Linebacker Frankie Letizia made sure the Indians left that way, too.
Letizia was all over the field Friday night, disrupting the line of scrimmage and making plays downfield as the Indians rolled against the host Bengals.
“Our D-line did a great job,” Letizia said. “(Oak Forest) had no penetration. We were getting deep upfield, and they had nowhere to run.”
Lemont will play Hillcrest Friday night, while Oak Forest will play TF South.
