2016 IHSA Week 3 Recap

Week 3… separation week?

September 9, 2016

What a weekend of high school football in the chicagoland area! Two-top ranked conference foes face off during week 3 and we were at both games…

35H-FLWEast 30

The SouthWest Surburban contest put two undefeated teams on the same field: Homewood-Flossmoor visiting Lincoln-Way East… Both teams area offensive powerhouses as the Griffins put up 84 points in the first two weeks, and the Vikings 110. In the end, it was the visitors, the Vikings who are still undefeated winning 35-30.

Before everyone could get in their seats good, the hometeam, Griffins, grab an early 14-0 lead. Quarterback Jake Arthur (13-for-19 ,162 yards) found Jeremy Nelson on a pair of TD passes. The first covered 28 yards and the second 41. But this game wouldn’t be settled in the first quarter.

Bryant Wright led an impressive comeback. The 5-foot-10, 160-pound senior hooked up with Tyrice Richie on TD passes of 40 and 44 yards. Bryant also contributed a 5-yard TD run and hit Richie with a 2-point conversion pass to create a 21-21 tie with 9:59 to go in the second quarter.

“We were down, but we knew it wasn’t over,” Richie said of the 14-0 deficit. “The coaches told us to keep fighting.”

Running back Herbert Hughes, transfer from CPS Stagg, gave H-F their first lead of 28-21 with 2:44 remaining in the first half. Hughes stutter-stepped at the line of scrimmage before sprinting up the middle through the secondary down the field.

Hughes finished the contest for over 160 yards on the ground on just 10 carries.

The Griffins, however, struck back. Randy Scianna’s 3-yard TD run with 5:12 left in the third forced a 28-28 tie and set up a nail-biting finish.

Vikings scored their final touchdown when Wright tossed another pass to Richie with 6:20 left to play. Richie caught 10 passes for 223 yards and three touchdowns. Wright finished the game with over 275 yards and also rushed for a TD.

“I wanted to make a statement,” Richie said. “I felt like I was underrated coming into this season. This is a great win for us. A lot of people doubted us.”

The Griffins pinned H-F deep on the other side of the field and instead of punting, coach Buzea decided to take a safety, making the score 35-30, and take their chances on defense.

Lincoln-Way East (2-1, 0-1) had a chance to win, but H-F’s Dylan Duplessis came up with an interception near the Vikings goal line with 1:17 remaining and the Vikings (3-0, 1-0) just ran out the clock.

“I’m proud of our kids,” Buzea said. “They were resilient. Hat’s off to our defensive staff. After those first two drives, the defense really stepped up.”

It was an especially emotional win for H-F. Senior receiver/punter Tyler DeMartra suffered a compound right ankle fracture in the second quarter trying to catch a pass and had to be taken off the field by ambulance.

“We were waiting for this,” Buzea said. “Wright made some great reads. He’s just going to keep getting better and better. And Richie, all I’ll say is Northern Illinois got a steal.”

You will be able to relive this contest via Comcast Sports starting Saturday at noon. Check local listing for channel. In the meantime, you can watch some game highlights at via their YouTube channel.

H-F will play another undefeated team Lockport (3-0) next Friday night; LW East travel to Bolingbrook (2-1).

Loyola & Mount Carmel have been the gold standard of Illinois high school football every year. The Ramblers did just enough to stay undefeated Friday night at Gately stadium winning 35-28.

“[Mount Carmel] is a great team and [Thomas] is a hell of a player,” Holecek said. “We did just enough to win.”

The Ramblers jump out to an early two-score lead, 28-14 at the half, but the Caravan (2-1, 0-1 Catholic League Blue) found a spark when do-it-all athlete Alek Thomas took over at quarterback and even ran a couple of an unprecident trick plays with running back Michael Kennedy throwing a pair of halfback passes including one for a 33-yard touchdown to Phazione McClurge.

Thomas had 11 carries for 95 yards, including a seven-yard touchdown. He caught two passes for 16 yards and threw two passes for 64 yards. He played quarterback, running back and wide receiver for the Caravan (2-1, 0-1).

But Jake Marwede rose to the occassion and managed the game perfectly. He finished the contest going 69 yards on teh ground and three touchdowns.

“Overally offensively [we were] impressive,” Holecek said. “[Marwede] shows he’s the best kid in the state, to me.”

The Caravan had a chance at the end, but failed on a 4th and six from the Loyola 11 with 2:00 to play. Quarterback Dan Trudeau went for a receiver in the end zone, but the pass fell incomplete.

Loyola will play St. Francis next Saturday; Mount Carmel will play DePaul College Prep next Friday afternoon.

Chicago Classic Recap…

High School Football

What a way to cap off week 1 in high school football… six teams going at it at legendary Soldier Field. Things got started with the battle of the Saints… Rita vs. Patrick……

SoldierField2016

St. Patrick wins in a nail biter…

St. Patrick 47, St. Rita 44: Jake Zylman passed for 206 yards and four touchdowns — three to Tim Zaleski — but the Mustangs’ second-half rally fell short. Zylman also rushed 10 times for 83 yards and Shaun Rule had 18 carries for 89 yards and a TD for St. Rita, which trailed 33-14 at halftime.

St. Rita will play host to Rich Central Friday night (we will be onsite for this one); St. Patrick will face Glenbrook South.

Caravan roll in the opener….

… knocking off Chicago Taft 49-7.

It was the Alek Thomas show as he made it to the end zone three (3) times in the season opener at legendary Soldier Field including an opening score for 49 yards on a screen. The other two were from 1 yard out on a wildcat QB keeper and from 26 yards out.

Taft did get on the board at the end of the game on a nice fade toss from sophomore Peter Fusek to senior Joshua Meyer.

Dan Trudeau went 3-for-4 for 112 yards and two TDs to finish the game. Jake Moriarty also put on a show in the contest adding 83 yards on nine carries for the Caravan.

Apparently the Caravan “embraced the suck!” coach Frank Lenti’s mantra for summer training.

Game highlights can be seen by clicking here via MaxPreps.

Mount Carmel plays Gary West Side next Friday night; Taft will face Chicago Uplift Saturday afternoon.

Crusaders topple the RedHawks

Marist  BrRice

Two top-ranked teams, faced off at Soldier Field Sunday for the BATTLE of PULASKI! As a four-loss Marist team rolled to the Class 8A state title game last season and with many of those key players back this season. they were the favs… but Brother Rice dominated 3 1/2 quarters to seal the victory 31-7.

Offensively the Crusaders did it behind the play of senior quarterback Dino Borrelli and Ricky Smalling. The Illinois-recruit Smalling grabbed a 56-yard touchdown pass on the Crusaders’ first drive of the game and showed not only his ability to catch but he displayed his natural speed sprinting to the end zone.

“It’s just amazing,” Smalling said. “I’ve wanted to play at Soldier Field a long time and it’s special to come out here and get the win against Marist.”

Marist kept it close in the first half thanks to TJ Ivy’s 57-yard TD reception from junior quarterback Morgan Taylor, but the RedHawks trailed 14-7 at halftime, but couldn’t find much rhythm after that. Taylor did show his talents over all, finishing the game 14-of-19 passes for over 130 yards.

“When you look at this game, there were a lot of opportunities out there,” Marist coach Pat Dunne said. “This hurts all of us, but it’s Week 1 of the season. We’ve been in this position before.”

Borrelli, in his first start, finished the opener going 11-for-21 for 185 yards with two touchdown passes and a two-yard TD run after an interception from Aarion Lacy, giving the Crusaders a commanding 28-7 lead less than three minutes after Smalling’s second TD grab.

“Dino is a heck of a football player, he just needs to get some experience with us,” Brother Rice coach Brian Badke said. “Having his first start in this type of setting is pretty intimidating but he did a great job. He’s a good kid and a leader, I’m really proud of him.”

The Crusaders also got things going on the ground with running back Xavion Valladay, who ran for over 120 yards on 16 carries including a spectacular sprint for 71-yards and a score in the second quarter.

Now on the other side of the ball, Brother Rice defense was solid keeping them from scoring after first quarter.

In short, the Crusaders dominated the game and showed everyone that they should be taken seriously in the Chicago Catholic Blue conference.

Rice will host Crete-Monee next Friday night, while Marist host Simeon.
