Stretch run…

Saturday, October 18

Mount Carmel 42, Hales 16
Caravan (4-4) get a BIG win Saturday night and still keep their eyes on another playoff run.

“Every week is a new week,”  Mount Carmel coach Frank Lenti said. “It’s always going to be win or go home from here on out. We’re not making too big a deal out of it. It’s in the kids’ hands. Everybody’s all excited about, ‘what do we have to do,’ but I say we have to play well against good competition, that’s all it really comes down to.”

DePaul Prep 35, St. Joseph 0
DePaul Prep (4-4, 2-0): Paulie Rivas 2 rushing TD, 80-yd TD pass; Marwan Smith TD; Chris Jerome Smith 2 rushing TD

Friday, October 17

Homewood-Flossmoor 68, Lockport 21

Wonder twin power activated again as the Vikings win BIG against Lockport Friday night.

The Harley-Hampton brothers — Deante and Devonte – combined for the first six touchdowns in the first half of the 68-21 win. They are nicknamed for their speed: Devonte is nicknamed “Squirrel” and Deante is nicknamed “Rabbit”.

“We both ran a 4.47 40,” said Deante, who scored from 76 yards out on the Vikings first offensive play. “Great execution by the team and good blocks.”

“Once he seen the opening he pushed it,” Devonte said.

Deante finished with seven carries for 175 yard and three TDs. Devonte had the same number of carries for 46 yards and three TDs — one receiving.

With this win, the Vikings (6-2, 5-1) keep pace for the SouthWest Suburban Blue title.

Providence 45, Brother Rice 42

Talk about an offensive game where both teams put up lots of points and over 1,000 yards of offense… but in the end, the Celtics held off the Crusaders to snag a 3-point victory.

Things got started when Richie Warfield returned a 94-yard kickoff return, and from that, each team went back-and-forth throughout.

The Celtics’, Justin Hunniford, completed 22-of-34 passes for 364 yards and five touchdowns – three of those touchdown passes were a part of a first-half that saw the Celtics (7-1, 3-1) build a 28-7 lead at intermission.

As the score states, the Crusaders did not give up, they only needed just 11 minutes to turn a three-touchdown deficit into a 28-28 tie. Rice’s biggest weapon was quarterback Alex Alarcon, who finished 33-of-46 for 430 yards. Sophomore Ricky Smalling caught 11 of those passes for 207 yards and three touchdowns, covering 61, 31 and 22 yards. It was the duo’s 31-yard score with one minute remaining in the third quarter that tied the game 28-28. Alarcon rushed for scores of nine and two yards in the fourth quarter.

Hunniford converted a 27-yard field goal at 10:43 of the fourth quarter that gave Providence a 31-28 lead. This lead they would not relinquish, though Rice did score two mroe times.

“I’d say the fans got their money’s worth,” Providence coach Mark Coglianese said. “It was a wild one, that’s for sure.”

Rice needs to beat St. Rita on Friday to earn a share of the Blue title with Providence.

Lincoln-Way East 23, Bolingbrook 9

Liam Morrissey did it all in this Friday night contest including rushed for 173 yards on 38 carries and touchdowns to lead East to a BIG conference win over Bolingbrook.

“It was a direct reflection of how good our line is this year,” Morrissey said. “They’re doing some amazing things. They’re all great.”

With this victory, the Griffins clinched atleast a tie for the conference title.
