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.

 

Other scores for around the league…

Loyola 35, St. Rita 3: Kyle Rock, 18 carries, 102 yards, 2 TDs; Tommy Herion, 14-26 passing, 179 yards, TD; rush TD. St. Rita — Shaun Rule, 13 carries, 88 yards; Gavin Mottl, 40-yard FG

Benet 56, Marian Catholic 7: Cameron Thomas’ 87-yard TD pass to Joe Stith was the big play for Marian (1-5, 0-4 ESCC).

Mother Nature showed up and showed out this weekend in the Chicagoland area as it was ABSOLUTELY gorgeous football weather. In the end, teams made their presence felt while others who struggled early are making a strong surge.

St. Patrick flexed Friday night!

The Shamrocks dominated from the kickoff to the final whistle defeating the host ESCC team Marian Catholic 41-0.

This got started right away when sophomore Marcus Wright sprinted the down the field for their first score. On the next possession, the Shamrocks scored again but in the air on a 51 yard pass from senior Anthony Mazzenga to Jonathan Hamilton. And literally less than 3 minutes later, Wright scored again, this time on a 32 yard pass from Mazzenga. Right before half, Joey Solak intercepted a quick pass, Mazzenga tossed yet another touchdown to Andrew Edgar making the score 27-0.  Edgar would score again in the third quarter this time from 63-yards out. The final score came with a running clock when Hamilton hauled in a 36 yard TD pass. Talk about an offensive explosing for the Shamrocks.

A bright note for the spartans came from Christian Simmons, who gained 62 yards on 12 carries for Marian (1-3, 0-2 ESCC). For highlights from this contest via CSNSport, visit http://bit.ly/2cQtNIw

The Shamrocks will face Niles Notre Dame next, while Marian Catholic will play Marist.

Richards wins two in a row…

Talk about a turnaround as Bulldogs wins their second game in a row defeating the Astros 38-10 in a South Suburban Red contest Friday night.

Richards (2-2, 2-0) senior Anthony Quinn led the way rushing for over 100 yards and three touchdowns from 40, 1 and 39 yards.

“I want my team to do good,” Quinn said with a smile afterward. “I want to do whatever I can to make that happen.”

Bulldogs quarterback Jake Moran finished the game going 9-for-15 for 107 yards and scored on a 5-yard run and tossed a 42-yard TD pass to Noah Petrusevski.

Shepard, who loss for the very first time this season (3-1, 1-1), scored on a 41-yard field goal by Mike Iturbe and a 78-yard pass play from quarterback Jack Carberry to Rishard Blake.

 

Crusaders cruise Friday night…

Call it an old school game featuring the Crusaders (4-0), but in the end, whew…. they defeated Montini 42-7. Behind the outstanding play of quarterback Dino Borrelli, who reached the final score at half by tossing s-i-x touchdown passes.

He had a Madden video game type of night going 14 of 15 passes for 331 yards and the six TDs. His lone incompletion came when he threw away a pass to avoid a sack.

“It was definitely the best game of my life,” Borrelli said. “It was awesome. We practiced all those plays all work and then they actually worked in the game. It was a great feeling.”

Ricky Smalling finished the game with 5 catches for 186 yards and three touchdown passes.

The Vikings continues there winning ways….

Senior QB Bryant Wright scored s-e-v-e-n times in the high scoring contest against Lockport as the won 53-24. He took there in on the ground and tossed four others.

“I haven’t had that type of run-and-pass game,” said Wright, who finished 7-for-11 passing for 209 yards and rushed for 153 yards on 13 carries. “I just took what they gave me. That was my first time running for three touchdowns.”

In the end, the Vikings had over 500 yards of offense and the punter had the evening off as they didn’t punt one time.

H-F remains undefeated at 4-0, 2-0, while Lockport is now 3-1, 1-1.

St Laurence holds on against stingy St. Rita

In a nailbiter the Vikings (3-1) defeated the Mustangs 45-42 primarily on a deflected pass not intended for senior Levy Hamer, but he took it in to score.

“I was in the right place at the right time,” Hamer said. “I was there as a safety net. I live for those type of moments.”

St. Rita quarterback Jake Zylman finished the contest going 11-for-20 for over 200 yards and connected with Tim Zaleski twice. Zylman also rushed for over 130 yards.

It was the first victory for St. Laurence over the Mustangs since 1987, a span of 12 games.

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….

MC

… 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.
