Plainfield South 31, Joliet West 27
The Plainfield South Cougars (1-1) and Joliet West Tigers (1-1) played an exciting and see-saw battle from the opening kickoff until 39 seconds remained in the contest before a victor was determined. In all, the lead changed hands seven times before the Plainfield South Cougars defeated their area rivals 31-27. After Cougars Sr. QB Ricky Luna (3 Carries for 103 Yds Rushing, 2 TD's & 1 TD Passing) scored the winning touchdown with 1:40 to go.
But, the Joliet West Tigers still wouldn't go away quietly as they nearly broke the ensuing kickoff for a touchdown return. Luckily the tackle was made, but the Cougar Defense still needed to come up big one last time against a team who had made it a habit of scoring tit-for-tat this evening. This time, though, it would be up to Joliet West's QB Ashton McCullough to engineer the final drive even though the second of their QB Tandem, Anthony DiNardo had tossed two long TD's earlier. Tough call, but I do understand it as McCullough probably gives the Tigers more offensive options with his ability to pass and run. But Ashton McCollough didn't run and he couldn't complete a pass against a now fired-up Cougar Defense. Four straight passes would fall incomplete, including the last one which was thrown into the end zone. Plainfield South had held and took over on downs with 39 seconds remaining.
The game was finally over, but it sure was one heck of a barn-burner!
The game began with Joliet West fumbling the opening kickoff and the Cougars' Mason Matesevic recovering inside Tiger territory. Plainfield South then moved the ball towards the goal line. With a little more than a minute and one-half off the clock, QB Ricky Luna attempted to run the ball in for the score but was hit at the one yard line and coughed-up the ball. WR Mike Valentine, though, was able to recover for the TD. 6-0! PK Matt Imburgia made the PAT and the Cougars were up 7-0!
Joliet West, though, would go on to match the Cougars nearly score-for-score the rest of the evening. On the 1st play of the 2nd Quarter, RB Korey Rogers busted a long 76 Yard TD Run up the middle and after the PAT the score was tied at 7-7. With 7 minutes remaining in the Half, Cougars QB Ricky Luna ran 16 yards for the TD (Imburgia PAT) and the Cougars were up 14-7. The Cougars and Tigers were both moving the ball well, but drives stalled as 11 Penalties (8 by South and 3 by West) were called in the 1st Half by an officiating crew that at times resembled the NFL replacements we have been seeing of late. But hey, penalties (real or perceived) are part of the game and after a penalty was called on South before the half, RB Korey Rogers scored from the 1 yard line and then caught the 2 Point Conversion Pass from QB Ashton McCullough as the Joliet West Tigers took a 15-14 lead at the Half.
Man, what a 1st Half! Plainfield South's Ricky Luna and Joliet West's Korey Rogers were giving the fans one heck of a show and there was still another half to go. You could just sense that this was not going to end, you know? Sure enough too as Cougars QB Ricky Luna hit RB John Kosirog with a 26 Yard TD Pass (Imburgia PAT) and Plainfield South had re-taken the lead at 21-15 with 8 minutes to go in the 3rd Quarter. But you guessed it - Joliet West did it again a minute later as Tigers' QB Anthony DiNardo threw a 66 yard bomb for a TD and tied the score at 21-21. Joliet West then attempted another 2 Point Conversion but failed to score. With 2 minutes remaining in the 3rd, Plainfield South's Matt Imburgia split the uprights for a 24-21 lead.
Joliet West wasn't going to let that bother them though. With 10 minutes remaining, QB Anthony DiNardo uncorked another bomb, this time for 49 Yards to retake the lead at 27-24 (PAT Failed). Plainfield South, though, weren't going to give up. This is a tight unit and know how to play during crunch time. On the game-winning drive the Cougars not only moved the ball effectively but did so in a confident manner to get closer to the goal line. With a little less than 2 minutes on the Game Clock, QB Ricky Luna again scampered into the end zone for a TD (Imburgia PAT) and the Cougars took the lead for good at 31-27. But the fans had to be holding their breathes at this point because Joliet West would be getting the ball back. So, if there were ever a time for the Plainfield South Defense to really step-it-up - this was it!
Especially after the Tigers had played them tit-for-tat all night.
And it looked as if they were going to do it again after Joliet West's WR Niko Messino received the kickoff and nearly broke it for a Kick Return down the Cougar Sidelines. Plainfield South's CB Terrance Russell had other ideas and was able to come up with a game-saving tackle on Messino near the Cougar 30 Yard Line. Now it would be up to the defense to stop QB Ashton McCullough (instead of DiNardo who had tossed 2 TDs earlier) from pulling out a win for the Tigers. The Cougar Defense, though, had other ideas as they forced the speedy QB into throwing 4 Pass Incompletions, including the last one into the end zone.
Plainfield South took over on downs with 39 seconds remaining and ran out the clock. Joliet West had finally been stopped after trading scores with the Cougars all night. The Tigers were no doubt disappointed, but I gotta strange feelin' that the teams of the Southwest Suburban Blue are not going to look at this team as the same pushover from year's past. Head Coach Jason Aubrey has not only improved this Joliet West Football Program, but he also has a group of talented athletes who will be making some noise this season.
As for Plainfield South, QB Ricky Luna has now established himself as the leader of this squad and that is not by accident. He has worked hard ever since joining the program and has his earned his chance to lead this team. And he will succeed because his teammates not only respect him, but they trust him too! Of course it doesn't hurt that Ricky Luna is as tough as nails either. And while we are the subject of toughness, how about the mental toughness displayed by Cougars PK Matt Imburgia? This kid is a weapon in his own right ( 1 FG / 4 PAT's) That was a pretty big 7 Points!
Next Up: @ Plainfield North Tigers (1-1)
Plainfield North 35, Lockport Township 2
The Plainfield North Tigers (1-1-0) and Lockport Porters (0-2-0) were both reeling from Week One defeats and were hoping to turn it around on Friday Night. Unfortunately, the Lockport Porters weren't up to the task as Plainfield North demolished them 35-2. The Tigers were led by QB Kurt Palendech who threw for 150 Yards (9/11, 1 TD) will rushing for another 107 Yards ( 1 TD). In addition to Palendech, Sr. RB Jay Roberts (8 / 115 Yards, TD) and Jr. RB Trenton Cavin added another two touchdowns (2 Yds, 4 Yds). Cavin, who scored two touchdowns versus Bradley-Bourbonnais has given himself a memorable beginning to his Varsity Career. Nice Job Trenton! Your late Grandfather would have been very proud and is no doubt smiling down upon you.
Lockport, meanwhile, just don't have much to smile about after their first two games of the season. Not only are the Porters off to a slow start, but they must be wondering where their offense is hiding. They have scored a total of 9 points with 2 being the result of a Safety. Lockport, who had not lost a season-opening game since 2002, allowed the Downers Grove North Trojans (2-0-0) score on every possession while putting together one sustained drive of 80 yards in 15 plays for a 17 Yard TD Pass to Brendan Reed from QB Ryan Dalton. That's it - the only offensive points thus far in the season! That drive was also the only possession the Porters would have in the 2nd Half. The only offensive bright spot for Lockport has been a very respectable 6.6 Yards per carry average by RB Brenden Bays who has managed a 6/54 and 15/85 performance versus Lockport's first two opponents.
I have to believe that things will also get worse for the Porters before they get better. Lockport must now face the Lincoln-Way East Griffins who are off to a solid 2-0 start with victories against Mundelein Carmel (31-6) and the three time (consecutively) defending IHSA Class 5A State Champions Lombard Montini (20-14). I don't know for sure but Lockport should be able to get into the win column in Week Four versus Joliet Central (0-2-0).
Then again, that is not a certainty either because the Steelmen have been pretty competitive in their first two losses to Rich Central (24-14) and Reavis (7-6).
Plainfield North, meanwhile, will meet their district rivals, the Plainfield South Cougars (1-1-0) at home this Friday Night. And the way I see it, this could very well be one of those "classic games." Both teams are more than capable of producing points and this one could come down to whichever offensive unit has the last possession of the game. Of course we mustn't forget that these two teams already have a pretty good history of sticking-it to one or the other in "Big Game Situations." Now I am not exactly sure which rivalry is bigger for South (Plainfield North or Minooka), but I do get the feeling that North has always viewed South as their biggest and natural rivals. Either way, these kids will show up ready to play! Good Luck Guys.
Next Up: Home vs Plainfield South (1-1)
Oswego East 31, Oak Lawn Community 6
The Oswego East Wolves (2-0-0) have now completed a repeat of last season's start, against the same opponents. And if there is one thing I am fairly confident about here is that the Rich South Stars' (0-2-0) and Oak Lawn Community Spartans' (0-2-0) season won't be helping Oswego East accumulate too many opposition points used to determine potential State Playoff Tie-breakers. Thus - if the Oswego East Wolves are to qualify for their first ever IHSA State Playoffs - then they must win a number of conference games this season. Pretty straight forward if you ask me.
In Oswego East's 31-6 victory over Oak Lawn this past Friday, the Wolves used a combination of big plays and smash-mouth football. On the Wolves 1st possession, QB Sean Kennedy found Scooter Smith with a short pass and he turned it into a 54 Yard TD up the sidelines for a 6-0 lead (PAT failed). On the second possession, QB Sean Kennedy found Chase Skenendore in the end zone and after a 2 Point Conversion by Cooper Fell, the Wolves led 13-0.
But it was Branden Lowe (16 Att / 115 Yds, 2 TDs & 1 TD Passing), who was playing in the place of injured Chris Cooper, who would propel the Wolves offense. After rushing for 2 TD's (6 Yds, 2 Yds) in the 2nd and 3rd Quarters, Lowe shocked the Spartans by throwing a 26 Yard Halfback Option Pass to Chase Skenendore to close out the scoring. Oswego East had built a 31-0 Halftime lead and the Oak Lawn Spartans couldn't muster much of anything versus the Wolves Defense. The Spartans did put together one 15 play - 60 yard drive but turned the ball over on downs at the 20 yard line after being stopped on a 4th and 6 play. Oak Lawn finally scored on a 1 Yd run by Spartans QB Bob Oleson in the 4th Quarter after the Spartans recovered an Oswego East fumble.
It appears that new Head Coach Tyson LeBlanc has gotten the Oswego East Wolves to buy into his winning methods resulting in two positive results. Tyson LeBlanc compiled a 33-27 career record at Chicago Curie, but that record is misleading. LeBlanc built Curie into a winning program as they made the IHSA State Playoffs in each of his five seasons there. In 2010-2011, Chicago Curie won the Chicago Public League Championship while competing in the ultra-tough CPL Illini-Red. He gets his teams to play that's for sure. In last season's State Playoffs, Chicago Curie played Maine South incredibly tough before losing 35-13 in the First Round. No wonder people in Oswego are feeling that the Wolves program is in good hands.
But as I stated earlier, Rich South and Oak Lawn aren't exactly tough competition for any team in the SPC. But Tyson LeBlanc is a winner and the Wolves will benefit in the long run. The Wolves will now face an 0-2 Plainfield East Bengals Team that is hungry for a win and a coach known for getting the most out of his club. And the Bengals will give Oswego East a good game Friday Night and are way better than their record indicates.
Who wins? Hmm...I think I have to go with the Bengals.
But hey - we'll see right?
Next Up: @ Plainfield East Bengals (0-2)
Plainfield Central 14, St. Charles North 7
Like Oswego East, the Plainfield Central Wildcats have wrapped-up their non-conference schedule against the same competition as the year before. And like the Wolves, won't be getting too many of those precious opposition points from Chicago Amundsen and/or St. Charles North - but I like Coach John Jackson's chances this season because he has three of his most important offensive weapons back intact. Matter of fact, I think the Wildcats have the opportunity to go 5-1 going into the toughest part of their schedule requiring only one more victory. Will it happen? Not sure - but it is possible.
The Plainfield Central Wildcats (2-0-0) did not need a last second score against the St. Charles North North Stars (0-2-0) to win this year. But they did need some late defensive heroics to stop a North Stars rally late in the game in their 14-7 victory. I don't know folks, but these two teams seem to play some close games even though I thought this would be more of a blowout for the Wildcats. Well, at least I got the win part right.
St. Charles North played a solid defensive game, especially by Nick McCullough. But after forcing two Wildcat turnovers, a fumble recovery by Rich Mix and an interception by Nick McCollough in the 1st Quarter the North Stars could not convert them into scores. Plainfield Central eventually settled down and were able to score when Jordan Ellingwood ran it from the 1 Yard line with D1 Recruit Bryce Douglas leading the way after lining up in the backfield. The Wildcats led 7-0. With 30 seconds remaining in the half, Gino Giarratano scored from 2 Yards out with Bryce Douglas leading the way again. 14-0!
St. Charles North's offense was anemic in the 1st Half netting only 3 first downs. Central, meanwhile, racked up 13 while out-gaining the North Stars 201 - 53. After the half, though, St. Charles North started getting their offense going with an old-fashioned 6 minute drive that went 73 yards on 14 plays. A pass interference penalty against the Wildcats, though, kept the drive alive on a 3rd and 19 play. North Stars Jr. QB Erik Miller then threw a 31 Yard TD Pass to Zach Kirby just out of the reach of CB Akwasi Aikens who was defending. 14-7!
With a quarter and one-half to go, the North Stars would get the ball back a total of 4 times and could not get the equalizer. Plainfield Central had an opportunity to extend their lead with a Field Goal with 6 minutes to go, but Nick McCullough blocked the 32 yard attempt to keep the margin at 7. Bryce Douglas was equally as effective for the Wildcats defensively, but it was his punting that stifled the North Stars. With 4 minutes remaining, Douglas nailed a booming 56 yard coffin corner that pinned St Charles North at the 5. But QB Erik Miller (12/33 157 Yds, 1 TD) made an effort to get the North Stars down field and was able to engineer 3 first downs on their final drive with RB's George Edlund and Matt Prestemon combining for 56 Total Yards. After Miller hit Ben Kaplan with a 26 yard pass to get the North Stars out to the Wildcats 41. The drive ended, though, when the Central Defense was able to sack Miller and then force him into 3 pass incompletions.
Next Up: Home vs. Romeoville Spartans (0-2)
Waubonsie Valley 54, Oswego 28
This game was actually much closer than the score would indicate. But the Oswego Panthers (1-1-0) committed three crucial turnovers in the 2nd Half and could not keep the Waubonsie Valley Warriors (2-0-0) from capitalizing on them and opening the floodgates. The Warriors led 19-14 at the half on the strength of two Austin Guido touchdowns. For the night, RB Austin Guido rushed for 214 yards (4 TDs) and caught 3 Passes for 52 Yards (1 TD). But he wasn't the Warriors only weapon either as QB Dylan Warden Passed for 183 Yards (2 TDs) and Rushed for 66 Yards, Jr. RB Demario Webb Rushed for another 57 Yards (2TDs) and Troy Fumagalli had 4 Receptions for 79 Yards. This is one potent offense! But hey, so is Oswego's! QB's Steven Frank and Brett Wainwright combined for 170 Yards and Sr. RB Mikeel Stewart Rushed for 190 Yards, including a 65 Yard TD Run.
After going into the half trailing 19-14, Oswego forced Waubonsie Valley to punt after their 1st possession of the 2nd Half, but immediately forced a fumble at the 7 Yard Line in what became a turning point. Austin Guido scored on the very next play to make it 26-14. After the Oswego Panthers was able to cut the lead to 26-21 in the 3rd Quarter, the Waubonsie Valley Warriors blew it open with a 28-7 surge. And what a surge it was as Dylan Warden hit Christian Gibbs with a 52 Yard TD Pass and Austin Guido exploded with TD Runs of 41 and 88 Yards.
You have to give Waubonsie credit though, this is an extremely potent team that could very well go deep into the IHSA State Playoffs. Oswego, will now travel to Minooka for an early SPC Conference Showdown and don't kid yourselves this will be a very tough game in an hostile environment. However, I don't think all the pressure is on Oswego here, especially given the way Minooka (0-2) has opened their season with an anemic offense. But one does get the feeling Minooka will be trying to make a statement here because an 0-3 start is not only a possibility, but one I predicted before the season began.
As for Oswego, well, I still believe that they are one of the premier teams of the Southwest Prairie despite losing to Waubonsie since I predicted that that was also a probability this early in the season. The Panthers are still adjusting to the loss of Ryan West, but Steven Frank and Brett Wainwright will provide plenty of offense. And if they keep from making turnovers versus Minooka, they should emerge 2-1.
Next Up: @ Minooka Indians (0-2)
Batavia 30, Plainfield East 14
You really have to feel for Coach Mike Romeli's guys. They could have been 1-1 going into their conference opener versus Oswego East, but they were their own worst enemy against the Metea Valley Mustangs in the Season Opener. The Bengals fumbled the ball 7 times and losing 4 of them. But none were bigger than the final two as they were trying to protect a slim 22-21 lead and looking to run out the clock. Metea Valley's Tamal Kumar first fumble recovery with 6 minutes left led to the game-winning field goal. After the Bengals got the ball back - Kumar recovered yet another fumble with 4 minutes left that allowed the Mustangs to then run out the clock. That was a tough loss for the Bengals!
The Plainfield East Bengals (0-2-0) were on the road again this past Friday versus the Batavia Bulldogs (2-0-0). But they lost 30-14 as Anthony Scaccia racked-up 176 Yards Rushing (2 TDs) and 112 Yards Receiving (1 TD) in a dominating performance. The Bengals, who lost 48-7 to the Bulldogs last season, kept this year's game close for the 1st Half. The Bulldogs went up 10-0 after Anthony Scaccia scored the first of his two rushing TD's from the One Yard Line with 10 minutes left in the 2nd Quarter and Daniel Albrecht kicked a 22 Yard FG with three minutes remaining in the half. On the ensuing Kickoff, Bengals WR Aris Irazarry unleashed an 85 yard Kickoff Return, but the PAT attempt failed giving the home team a 10-6 Halftime lead.
Batavia would extend their lead to 16-6 after Anthony Scaccia caught a 12 Yard TD Pass from QB Micah Coffey (PAT Failed) with 8 minutes left in the 3rd. And four minutes later, QB Micah Coffey (16/31 195 Yds, 2 TD) completed a 20 Yard TD Pass to Zachary Strittmatter (PAT Good) for a 23-6 lead. Shortly after the 4th Quarter began, Bengals RB Cullen Rompa busted loose for a 51 Yard TD Run (2 Point Conversion Good) to cut the lead to 23-14. But 3 minutes before the end of the game, Anthony Scaccia scored his second Rushing TD from 2 Yards out (PAT Good) to make the score 30-14 after the Bulldogs put together one final time consuming 11 Play Drive. The Bulldogs will meet their conference arch rival Geneva Vikings (0-2) in their conference opener next.
Next Up: Home versus Oswego East Wolves (2-0)
Bolingbrook 46, Romeoville 10
Was there ever any doubt in this one folks? After all, the Bolingbrook Raiders (2-0-0) and Aaron Bailey are the #1 Team in the State according to the Associated Press and play at an entirely different level than most schools in the area. Matter of fact, they are so good that Bailey only wound up playing a half against the Spartans and will probably do the same Saturday Afternoon versus the Joliet Central Steelmen (0-2). Aaron Bailey (8 Att/113 Yards, 1 TD) pretty much let his teammates carry the load.
And carry the load they did. With 7:38 remaining in the 1st Quarter, RB Omar Stover (7 Att/141 Yards, 2 TDs) peeled-off a 92 Yard TD run (PAT Failed) for a 6-0 lead. With 2 minutes left in the quarter, the Romeoville Spartans cut the lead in half when Steve Derdzinski kicked a 3 Yard FG. 6-3! Bolingbrook, though, weren't too concerned as they went on to score 3 TD's in less than four minutes to blow the game open to start the 2nd Quarter.
RB John Hall started the onslaught with 11 minutes to go in the 2nd on a 2 Yard TD Run (PAT Adam Klein) and a 13-3 lead. With 10 minutes to go, Aaron Bailey threw an 8 Yard TD Pass to John Howard (PAT Klein) for a 20-3 lead and then peeled-off a 63 Yard TD Run (PAT Klein) to extend the lead to 27-3 with 8 minutes to go. Then a minute before the half, Freshman Linebacker Tuf Borland made it 34-3 (PAT Klein) after a 45 Yard Interception Return.
Well, not really because there was another to play and Bolingbrook hadn't established a running clock yet. But hey - that was coming. On the Raiders first possession of the 2nd Half, Omar Stover scored from 10 Yards out (PAT Failed) and it was 40-3. Four Minutes later, Sophomore QB Quincy Woods scored from the 1 Yard Line (PAT Failed). It was 46-3 and the running clock began. Romeoville was able to punch home a TD when Miguel Ford scored from the 2 Yard Line (PAT Derdzinski) to end the scoring at 46-10.
For Romeoville, well they now know what it feels like to be run over by a Mack Truck - but this was no embarrassment because Bolingbrook is just that good and Coach Jeff Kuna knows that unless his teams play high caliber competition they won't grow as program. Now many people have picked the Spartans to be finish at the bottom this season and might just do so. But, the Spartans have also lost a ton of players to graduation and they are in a rebuilding mode. Understandable. But I will say this - I still think the Spartans will come out and play some of their conference foes tough I am not sure if they will be able to repeat last year's season ending victory against Plainfield Central this Friday - but you just never know maybe some of that "Magic Bailey Dust" rubbed off on a few players. Right?
Next Up: @ Plainfield Central Wildcats (2-0)
Providence Catholic 28 Minooka 10
The Minooka Indians (0-2-0) have a new coach, a new offensive scheme and no victories thus far. Although this isn't the first time Minooka has started winless against the same teams (last year), this team will have a hard time duplicating their 6-4 record of 2011. Super RB Kalvin Hill and his nearly 9 Yards per Carry are gone and that is hard to replace. Yes Minooka still has Joe Carnagio, their fine running quarterback, WR Max Brozovich, WR Luke Stovall and RB Nathan Gunn - what they don't have though is an offense that is scoring points. Opposing teams know who their go-to guys are and have a fine job shutting them down as well as keeping the Offensive Line on their heels. If Minooka doesn't figure out a different strategy then they could be in trouble, especially with Oswego coming to town for the conference opener on Friday Night.
Providence Catholic (2-0-0) barely squeaked by with a 7-0 victory last season, but had no such trouble this past Friday Night as they scored a solid 28-10 win. Junior QB, Dominic Lagone (9/11, 106 Yds, 2 TD and 13 Att/69 Yds, TD) put together another good game for the Celtics and seems to be steadily improving. Providence have a balanced attack this season and could surprise quite a few more teams than Joliet Catholic.
The Celtics took a 14 -0 lead on the Indians when Chad Weaver ran it in from the 3 Yrd Line with 3 minutes remaining in 1st. It was 7-0 (PAT Regan). The Celtics made it 14-0 one minute into the 2nd when David Kaminski took it in from the 15 (PAT Regan). The Indians, however, didn't buckle as RB Nathan Gunn (5 Att/38 Yds, TD) rambled in from the 24 Yard line one play after Dionte Reed recovered a Lagone fumble. It was 14-7 (PAT Stytz). And just before the half, PK Jacob Stytz split the uprights with a 38 Yard FG to cut the lead to 14-10.
Perhaps Minooka could pull this game out after all. The Indians clearly had the momentum and Providence were playing without RB Brandon Price and WR Miles Boykin due to ankle injuries even though Chad Weaver (23 Att/107 Yds, TD) and WR David Kaminski (TD) had done a great job thus far and Cody Kirby had also contributed with 3 Receptions for 59 Yards.
But Minooka wouldn't threaten again after running only 9 plays from scrimmage in the 2nd Half. Providence Catholic was able to stop Minooka's momentum when, on their second possession of the 2nd Half, executed a 10 minute, 96 yard drive that resulted in a touchdown. Much of the credit goes to the Celtics Offensive Line, for opening up holes against the Indians. Lagone picked up 35 yards rushing on that drive and that included two consecutive runs of 11 and 12 yards after the Celtics had a 2nd and 17 situation. The end of the drive came when Lagone hit Brandon Denler for a 15 Yard TD. It was now 21-10 (PAT Regan). With a minute to go in the contest, Celtic QB Lagone ran the ball in from the 1 Yard line to make the final score 28-10 (PAT Reagan).
This was a heck of game by Providence Catholic and they are a much better team than some thought they would be. Dominic Lagone will only get better as the season progresses. Minooka, though, have shown little thus far for the talent they have and that must concern coaches, players and fans alike. Minooka will open their SPC Conference Schedule Friday Night versus an Oswego Panthers team that is playing much better than the Indians. A loss wouldn't necessarily end the Indians season - but the SPC figures to be tougher this year and that could have more teams scrambling for a state playoff spot in the end. The time has come for the Minooka Indians to Kick Out The Jams!
