Rich Central 60, Kaneland 20
Junior Sean Tyler saw “open field and opportunity” as Rich Central defeated Kaneland 60-20. Tyler finished the contest with 4 touchdowns including two long-runs. He reminded everyone of his winning track and field ability, team won State in the 4 x 100 and 4 x 200, in this game.

The visiting Knights (1-2) got on the board first on a short pass from Jack Douglas to Alex Moses at the 8:35 minute mark in the first quarter. On the kickoff, Tyler received the ball and darted down the field for 85-yards. Extra point failed, making the score 7-6.

The Knights scored again on the next possession with a short run by Jonathan Alstott taking the lead for the final time, as on the very next kickoff to the Olympians, junior Zachery Roebuck, caught the kickoff and return it to the endzone from 80 yards out. They tied the score at 14 on a successful 2-point conversion. Rich Central (2-1)  never looked back as on a few plays later, senior Derrick Maxwell Jr., jumped in front of a quick screen pass and returned it to the endzone. The score now was 20-14 and we were still in the first quarter and the Olympians offense hasn’t ran a single play. There first offensive play came early in the second quarter.

Later in the second, senior quarterback, Jyran Mitchell, put together the offenses first score on a well-managed drive that concluded with a 14-yard pass to Dionlashen Washington.

After intermission, the Olympians picked up where they left off and NIU-recruit Mitchell connected with Jason Johnson from 25 yards out then he showed his speed as he kept the ball and ran through the defense for a 67-yard score. On their next three possessions, it was Mr. Tyler who scored from 48 yards, 7 yards, and a video-game style run from 68.

The Knights did score on more time on a kickoff to Max Gagne.

Up next for Rich Central will be cross-town rival Rich South.

“The kids worked hard (this week),” coach Terrell Alexander shared after the game. “Next week we have work even harder as they (Rich South) is a varsity football team too.”

Richards 27, Shepard 21
Derek Flowers put on a show Friday night in the win against Shepard 27-21, a South Suburban Red contest. He finished the game with over 200 yards on the ground and four scores.

“Derek is one tough player,” Richards coach Tony Sheehan said. “We’re going to run with him. We’ve got to get down and dirty.”

Shepard was without head coach Dominic Passolano, who according to Porter, notified the staff he had a family emergency. That wasn’t the only loss the Astros suffered.

It was being reported via social media that the game became “very chippy” and two players from each team ejected.

Providence 28, St. Rita 21
Providence cools St. Rita off with a 28-21 victory in the Catholic Blue even though they let a 13-point lead slip away in the second half, but rallied to regain the lead for good on Caden Kalinowski’s 27-yard touchdown pass to De’Shon Gavin with 1:00 left in the game.

The Celtics collected over 300 yards on the ground including Gavin finishing with 114 yards on 18 carries and Magurany added 91 yards on 15 attempts.

“Jake with the power and De’Shon with the speed, that’s what we wanted to build our offense on,” Providence coach Mark Coglianese said. “The first two weeks (in losses to East St. Louis and Vianney, Mo.) we couldn’t quite get untracked. We were a little bit overmatched.”

Lemont 14, Hillcrest 7
Overtime was needed for Lemont to defeat Hillcrest 14-7 in a BIG South Suburban Blue contest.

The winning pass came from senior quarterback Mark Mathias to Matt Slee. It was a a floater to the right side of the end zone on the first play of OT.
