Bloom 35, Rich Central 28

Rich Central came out on Friday ready to move into a first place tie with Bloom Township in the Southland Conference. The Olympians scored twice in the first 4 minutes on their opening possessions when quarterback DeQuan Richie (20 for 41, 347 yards, 3 TD, 2 INT) tossed a pair of touchdowns. The first went to Jordan Fuqua (3 TDs) from 17 yards out. The next came a minute later to Deshon Kelly from 29 yards away.

After this, the Blazin’ Trojans scored the next 35 points on their way to a 35-28 win in Olympia Fields.

The play that turned the game around came early in the third when Kyle Pugh recovered a fumble at the Olympians’ 7-yard line. After an offside penalty and a 3-yard run by Emmanual Williams, quarterback Jordan Benavides punched it in from 9-yards out for a 28-14 lead with 5:30 left in the third.

“We never gave up on each other and we knew we would come back and make our plays,” Bloom coach Tony Palombi said. “We kept our focus today and they are on a mission.”

Williams scored the first three touchdowns on runs of 60, nine, and nine yards. He added his fourth from 29 yards out with 2:19 left in the third to give his team a 35-14 lead. The 5-5 senior finished with 193 yards on 24 carries.

“We are one and we protect each other,” Williams said. “My line blocked beautifully tonight. We have one things on our mind— one game at a time.”

Fuqua pulled the Olympians within 35-28 on a 2-yard TD run with 7:07 left in the fourth and a 5-yard TD catch with 34 seconds remaining. An onside kick was recovered by the Olympians on the ensuing kickoff but on the first play Richie threw and interception to Johnson to end the comeback bid.

“There is a lot of football left to play for us,” Rich Central coach Terrell Alexander said. “Our kids played their hearts out to the end and I respect my kids and I love them to death.”

St. Rita 55, St. Joseph 14

St. Rita running back Tyre Lee piled up 129 rushing yards and three touchdowns as host St. Rita rolled to a convincing 55-14 win over St. Joseph on Senior Night in a Catholic League crossover.

“I leave it up to my linemen. They go up there and do everything for me,” Lee said with a smile. “They work so hard for me that I’ve got to put some stats up for them. Just keeping it going running, just keep pushing.”

St. Rita improved to 6-1 overall, clinching a playoff berth for sure with the victory.

The road does not get any easier for the Mustangs, who close the season on the road at Loyola and Brother Rice with the Catholic League Blue title still very much up for grabs.

St. Joseph fell to 2-5. Armone Elem rushed 14 times for 119 yards, including a 74-yard touchdown run in the first quarter for the Chargers.

Homewood-Flossmoor 35, Bolingbrook 28

Vikings hold off the stingy Raiders 35-28 in a different way than everyone expected… through the air.

Things finalized when Jared Sharp hit Bryce Gray for two long touchdown passes in the fourth quarter. Gray’s 80-yarder to Sharp with 9:00 left gave the Vikings a 28-21 lead. But the Raiders were not done… Quincy Woods returned the kickoff 66 yards to the HF 4-yard line and Julian Huff scored from a yard out two plays later to tie the score at 28.

But just like that, Gray and Sharp hooked up again, this time for a 39-yard touchdown with 6:18 remaining for the final lead change in a wild second half.

It was sweet redemption for H-F (5-2, 4-1), which let double-digit leads slip away in losses to Stevenson and Lincoln-Way East.

“We knew we’d face adversity,” Gray said. “We started off slow. All we wanted to do was execute our game plan, and we knew if we did that, we’d win the game.”

Deante Harley-Hampton finished the game with 21 carries and 133 yards, and 1-touchdown. Twin brother, Devonte, also scored scored in during the contest

“Our kids persevered,” H-F coach Craig Buzea said. “They’re growing up. We could easily be 7-0 and the No. 1 team in the state. I think we hit some bumps in the road and we learned from it.”

Rich Central 42, Rich South 0

The Southland cross-town classic started with lots of tensions, but NOT on the field, as police presence was VERY visible at the stadium due to past tensions between the schools. On the field… no tension as the Olympians handled the Stars in a shutout.

Quarterback DaQuan Richie ran 12 yards for a touchdown and also threw a 60-yard scoring pass to DeQuan Dudley to lift visiting Rich Central (3-1) in the Southland opener for both teams. Rich South just couldn’t get anything going during the contest and fell to 1-3.

Rich East 40, Gary Roosevelt (Ind.) 6

The Rockets red glare went bursting in the air on Saturday afternoon as Rich East knock off Panthers 40-6 as thunderstorms rolled in. The first Rockets’ TD was set up by a blocked Roosevelt punt. B.J. Stewart scored from 4 yards out for East and then scored again with a 48-yarder on the next possession.

“It was a good victory for us. We came out and executed a few things well,” said Rich East coach Barry Reade, who also got two TDs each from Marcel McDonald and Kendall Miller. “We ran the ball well and got a few turnovers on defense. We did what we came here to do, which is win [going] interconference play next week.”

Defensively, Rich East (4-0) held Roosevelt to only 56 yards and two first downs in the two quarters. The first came with 3:15 left in the half, the second produced a 15-yard passing TD for Roosevelt (1-3), with Young hitting Ronald White Jr.

Loyola 42, Fenwick 0

Loyola (3-1) scored on its first two possessions, both scores set up with the run, to race out to an early 14-0 and NEVER locked back. Junior Dara Laja gained 29 yards on his first carry and finished with 135 of his game-best 147 yards in the first half. On the Ramblers’ second series, they ran the ball all 10 plays, with senior Cal Falkenhayn scoring from one yard out. Laja carried the ball seven consecutive times for 70 yards on the drive

St. Rita 23, Mount Carmel 21

Crosstown rivalry like none other as the Mustangs grabbed the lead early but fault back against the Caravan winning 23-21 in front of a jammed pack stadium Friday night.

Things got started with an acrobatic 43-yard touchdown catch by Lee from a pass from C.J. Weydeman to go up 7-0. Then they struck again with a little more than 8 minutes in the second on a Brandon Gaston 25-yard TD pass to Dion Bobo.

St Rita had a 14-0 lead, but you know the Caravan were going to adjust and make a run which including three lead changes in the final 6 minutes of the game.

They got on the board with a 1-yard touchdown run by A.J. Lewis, who finished with 17 carries, 83 yards, with 14.9 seconds left in the first half. Anthony Ries tied it at 14 with a 4-yard scoring run at 5:18 of the third quarter. And they took the lead on a 5-yard TD pass from Anthony Thompson (6 of 12, 74 yards) to Demetrius Lewis with 2:01 remaining.

But when the Mustangs kicker Bailey Marth, who missed an extra point after St. Rita’s go-ahead touchdown with under six minutes to go, but he redeemed himself with just 23.1 seconds left to play by kicking the winning field goal from  about 30 yards out.

Mustangs quarterback Weydeman completed 12 of 29 passes for 194 yards, including that touchdown pass to Lee. And Gaston threw a touchdown pass in the first half before running for the go-ahead score at 5:55 of the fourth.

“We were fine,” Gaston said of Mount Carmel’s comeback. “It was just our team chemistry was off a little bit. We’re all brothers. We all will come together in the end to make it up.”

The Caravan had one last chance, but ran out of time at the St. Rita 39. This is the first time they are 1-3 under coach Frank Lenti’s tenure.

“We did everything we possibly could do wrong in the first half,” Lenti said. “You’ve got to say our kids showed a lot of character coming back from 14-0 down and taking the lead in the last few minutes.”

A bright spot is Mount Carmel’s (1-3, 0-2) defense held St. Rita’s Tyre Lee — who was coming off back-to-back 200-yard rushing games against Dunbar and Montini — to 48 yards on 17 carries.

And if you thought St. Rita used everything in the playbook Friday night, wide receiver Gaston has some news.

“We’ve still got a couple more up our sleeve,” Gaston said after throwing for one touchdown and running for another in a stirring 23-21 Catholic League Blue home win over Mount Carmel.

Richards 46, Oak Lawn 21

Who throws a screen on third and long (22)? The Bulldogs…. as they executed the perfect screen from Hasan Muhammad-Rogers to Pat Doyle turned into a 65-yard touchdown and a 26-0 lead. Richards went on to post a 46-21 South Suburban Red road win over Oak Lawn on Friday.

“I thought we played a good first half, did a lot of good things, then got complacent,” Richards coach Tony Sheehan said. “We have to learn to put the hammer down.”

Muhammad-Rogers completed 14-of-21 passes for 273 yards.
