Let conference play begin…..
Kays spoil Olympians Homecoming
On this wet Friday night in Olympia Fields, District 227s Rich Central played host to their southern foe, Kankakee, who a week ago played Crete-Monee very tough in a lost. But, tonight the Kays were able to spoil the Olympians homecoming with a 21-12 victory.
Kankakee (3-3, 2-1) got on the board first with a rare error by junior QB Jyran Mitchell who tossed a pick 6 to Franklin Levelle, in which he returned it for 84 yards making the score 7-0 with 4:13 in the 1st and never looked back even though the Olympians would keep the game close. On the kickoff, Brendan Hutton took it 91-yards to the end zone but the extra point failed, making the score 7-6.
Kays would score again in the second quarter, this time on a special teams effort that blocked a punt that they recovered in the end zone. Extra point failed – 13-6.
With their never give-up attitude, Rich Central (4-2, 2-1) responded 4 minutes later Kamari Vassar scored – 2-point conversion failed. Score now was Kankakee 13, Rich Central 12. This would be the last time the home team found the end zone in the contest.
Bad field conditions and a slow sideways rain kept both teams from scoring in the third quarter, but the patience of the Kays would pay when Deandre Caldwell scampered through the Olympians defense for an 88-yard score which was the winning touchdown. On top of it, they went for two and was successful.
Up next for Kankakee travels to Bloom for a Saturday noon game, while Rich Central travels over two towns to play Crete-Monee next Friday night.
Crusaders continues to cruise…
Senior Dino Borrelli put on another wonderful performance Friday night against conference foe Mount Carmel, as the Crusaders won 49-42. He finished the contest going 25 of 34 passes for 387 yards and four touchdowns and added a rushing TD.
“Dino every week has gotten better,” Brother Rice coach Brian Badke said. “He’s a winner.”
The entire offense seemed to be on the same page as they racked up over 500 yards of productivity.
Ricky Smalling, an Illinois recruit, caught 10 passes for 175 yards and two TDs. His 55-yard TD reception with 20.6 seconds left in the third quarter forced a 35-35 tie and will not soon be forgotten.
Mount Carmel did have a chance to tie the game as they moved the ball down the field to ‘Rices 26 yard line with 31.2 seconds left but quarterback Alek Thomas was intercepted by Aarion Lacy at the 5 to seal the victory.
Thomas, a junior, completed 13 of 21 passes for 219 yards and three TDs. Jordan Cousert had two TD catches, and Phazione McClurge had one TD reception for the Caravan.
Thomas also rushed for 93 yards and a TD. His 5-yard rushing TD at 7:09 of the fourth quarter created a 42-42 tie.
Senior running back Michael Kennedy rushed for 148 yards and a TD. Kennedy also fired a 70-yard halfback-option pass to Cousert for a TD that tied the game 21-21 in the third quarter.
It was the third straight time Rice (6-0, 2-0) has beaten the Caravan. Three turnovers doomed Mount Carmel (3-3, 0-3).
Lemont wins big!
The Indians dominated the Hawks in a complete shutout, 27-0, in the South Sub Blue conference game Friday night.
Lemonts’ D held Hillcrest to just 67 total yards in the contest.
Put it this way, they got a nice long run by quarterback RonRecus Griffin on the first play from scrimmage. They didn’t pick up another first down until late in the fourth quarter after the Indians (6-0, 3-0) had wrapped up the victory.
Offensively, Lemont quarterback Spencer Nagel finished going 10-for-18 for 253 yards.
“Defensively, we did a lot of good things,” Lemont coach Bret Kooi said. “Offensively, we need to take advantage of that a bit more. We had the ball in good field position a lot of times and didn’t convert.”
Marist defeats St. Patrick
A fast start is just what the RedHawks drew up as they defeated top-knotched St. Patrick Saturday afternoon 41-13. And they did it behind the fine play of running back Delonte Harrell, who scored on three occasions…. TD runs of 1 and 18 yards and added a 6-yard TD catch. He finished with 117 yards on 22 carries.
“It was huge,” Harrell said of the early lead. “It’s hard to bounce back from 14 points and having your opponent score on two straight possessions to start the game.”
played a big part in helping the RedHawks achieve that goal.
The 5-foot-10, 170-pound junior accounted for two touchdowns on Marist’s first two possessions as the RedHawks cruised to a 41-13 East Suburban Catholic Conference victory at Hanson Stadium.
Marist (5-1, 4-0) quarterback Morgan Taylor completed 10 of 13 passes for 171 yards and two TDs and added 45 yards rushing. Taylor hooked up with Turon Ivy on a beautiful 69-yard TD reception that stretched the Marist lead to 21-0 with 9:14 remaining in the second quarter.
Any chance the Shamrocks (4-2, 2-2) had of cutting into a 21-7 deficit in the second quarter evaporated as RedHawks intercepted a pass on a fake-punt attempt.
