It’s time to separate… time for homecoming… and time for conference play… It is unseasonable warm here in Illinois… most Friday night lights kick off were around 82 degrees… Whew!

Here’s our recap for conference play in our coverage area:

VAC365-TPOSBuilding Men & Women via Athletics

Saturday, September 23

Crete-Monee 48, Rich East 12

Crete-Monee knocks off conference foe Rich East 48-12

Rich East (1-4, 0-1) took an early 6-0 lead on a well-orchestrated seven-play, 83-yard drive, which concluded with Malik Ecford (3 of 9 passes for 90 yards) hit Robert Sanner on an 11-yard pass for the score at 7:17 of the first quarter. But, that was about it for the Rockets.

Isaiah Rucker and the offense took over. Rucker then demonstrated his QB talents on the afternoon in the victory by completing 14 of 16 passes for 337 yards and four touchdowns.

“There’s nothing wrong with short passes,” Rucker said with a smile. “I get a little itchy to throw it long. But we’re winning and that’s all that matters.”

On the ground, Da’Tuan Carter got into the endzone on two different occasions, runs of 23 and 3 yards. He finished the game with 71 yards on six carries.

Warriors’ defense held Rich East to 247 yards.

“I’m happy we won,” Crete-Monee coach John Konecki said. “We can play better. We have a lot of guys who can touch the ball and take it to the rack.”

Up next will be a first-place showdown Friday night between the Warriors and Rich Central (4-1, 2-0) in Olympia Fields. Get your popcorn ready….

Friday, September 22

Hillcrest soar over Titans

In front of a jammed packed crowd, Hillcrest defended their homecoming quest defending South Suburban Blue Tinley Park, 33 – 7.  The humid conditions didn’t really play a role whatsoever in this game. Both teams came out with lots of energy which included three back-to-back penalties on the Hawks D for off-sides.

Once the nerves calmed, the Hawks attacked. Hawks score first and never looked back.

QB Rocky Griffin finished the game with two touchdown passes both to Nick Lindley. On the ground, Andre Smith scored twice from 5  and 30 yards, along with Dakari Smith, who also scored on a strong two-yard blast right before the half.

The visiting Titans (2-3, 1-2) got on the board with a 8yd pass from senior Ryan Zientara to 5’9″ David Morgan.

This was solid victory for Hillcrest (4-1, 2-1) as they begin to set the tone for the conference play.

Childers finished with 90 yards rushing and added a 24-yard touchdown reception for St. Rita (4-1, 1-1).

“The O-line does great, I just need to make better reads on my runs,” he said. “I need to be a little more patient.”

“I know that I have to execute when my teammates are counting on me in key situations,” Tomas said. “(Quarterback Isaiah Rucker) and I put in a lot of time together, and I want to be that big-play guy for him.”

Quarterback Rucker finished 20 of 30 passing for 271 yards and four TDs including a wonderful connection with Tyler Mays for a 33-yard TD in the fourth that sealed their final score.

The Crusaders fought back as best they could as John Bean connected with Dylan Summers for a 77-yard TD and Bean ran in the 2-point conversion to cut the lead to 33-25 with 2:59 left. Bean finished the game going 7 of 12 passes for 134 yards and running eight times for 68 yards and a TD.

The Olympians (1-1) grabbed some momentum at the end of the first half when Sean Tyler returned a kickoff 95 yards for a touchdown. Tyler finished with 63 yards on 12 carries.

IHSA Week 1 Recap…

What a solid weekend of high school football and we were on the sidelines for many excellent games….

 

Olympians have a strong showing…

OLYMPIA FIELDS: After a slow start, the Rich Central got things going and never let up as they defeated Thornwood 38-0.

First quarter of the game was full of jitters as both teams turnover the ball and couldn’t get started. The Olympians scored on a 22 yard run by junior tailback Michael Joshua. Joshua would score again late in the fourth quarter.

On the night, it was senior Jyran Mitchell, Northern Illinois-recruit, who guided the ship for the Olympians. Mr. Mitchell scored on three separate occasions: 58 yard run; 42 yard pass to Dionlashon Washington; and a 61 yard run late in the third quarter.

Rich Central dominated not only the scoreboard but all of the positive statistics in the contest including 483 total offense to 166.

Sean Tyler also reached the endzone on a 5 yard run in the third quarter.

A bright spot for Thornwood was the play of Peerless Jackson, 13 for 39; and Christian Simmon 6 for 8 for 73

Up next for Rich Central will be a repeat battle against St. Rita next Friday night in Chicago.

VAC365-TPOSBuilding Men & Women via Athletics

2017 Battle of Pulaski goes to….

CHICAGO: In this years edition of the Battle of Pulaski, Marist came out on top 23-14 behind the strong defense of the RedHawks and defensive lineman Gavin McCabe. He finished with ten tackles, four for a loss.

Each of those big plays were especially key since the RedHawks were suffering through a strange mass-cramping incident.

In the third quarter there were at least eight players getting cramps worked out on the Marist sideline.

“It was crazy,” McCabe said. “I drank about seven coconut waters, that’s what the tell us to do. And I started cramping up at the end. At one point I think we had three of our starting wide receivers out. That’s something we are going to have to check out and make sure it doesn’t happen next week.”

Marist sealed the win by tackling Brother Rice quarterback Evan Sullivan for a safety with 4:50 left in the game. Linebacker Colin Bohanek, a sophomore, made the tackle. McCabe and Danny Meehan helped provide the pressure.

Offensively, Marist junior Billy Skalitzky sprinted down the field for 66 yards score which game them the lead. On the very next possession the Crusaders fumbled the snap punting and Kendric Nowling fell on the ball for the touchdown, 14-0 in the first quarter.

The Marist backfield was surely a bright spot as Delonte Harrell had 16 carries for 53 yards, and Jadon Thompson caught four passes for 64 yards. Quarterback Mike Markett finished 9 for 18 passing for 91 yards.

“[This win] is so much bigger than just our team,” McCabe said. It’s for every Marist RedHawk that has played Brother Rice. It’s really special.”

Griffins topped the Warriors

FRANKFORT: Lincoln-Way East traveled well and was prepared on Friday night as the knocked off the hometeam Warriors, 27-7.

Brendan Morrissey put on a offensive show, passing for two touchdowns and rushing for two more in the victory.

“I woke up a few times during the night,” Morrissey said. “I was nervous. After the first play, I settled in.”

East rushed for 258 yards. Sophomore A.J. Henning showed flashes of being a dominant running back, picking up 75 yards on six carries. Ryan Scianna added 33 yards on the ground.

On the other side of the ball, the Warriors quarterback Isaiah Rucker did the best he could. He finished the game going 20 of 43 passes for 275 yards, including a 48-yard TD pass to Joshua Tomas.

But East’s defensive line, led by Northwestern recruit Devin O’Rourke, Dylan Shelton, Ben Ravetto and Jaden Hacha, applied consistent pressure including sacks by O’Rourke and Hacha.

St. Rita wins at Soldier Field

CHICAGO: Chris Childers made his debut as St. Rita’s No. 1 running back an impressive one Friday in the Mustangs’ 49-21 victory over St. Patrick at Soldier Field.

The 6-foot, 200-pound senior rushed 17 times for 89 yards and three touchdowns. The scores were from 1, 2 and 2 yards out.
“I worked really hard in the offseason,” Childers said. “But it was all about during the summer going out to the field with the team and getting extra work in. We all really prepared for this.

“I felt great. It’s always good to get back out there. Me and the team were really excited for this. I knew we were going to perform very well.”

Homewood-Flossmoor 63, Michigan City (Ind.) 21
H-F (1-0): Justin Hall 4 18 carries, 214 yards, 4 TDs.

Joliet Catholic 34, Geneva 27
JCA (1-0): Ke’Von Johnson 3 TDs, including 64-yard run.

Lincoln-Way Central 41, Lake Central (Ind.) 0
L-Way Central (1-0): Matt Pollack 114 yards rushing, 3 TDs.
