Rich East 35, Rich Central 29
This game was somewhat sloppy for a standard Southland conference game, in which Rich East came back to snag the 35-29 victory. This contest came down to the last seconds of the game with the Rockets trailing 29-27, when Malcolm Miller and the Rockets scrambled around then found a wide-open Rondell Willingham down the sideline for a 62-yard touchdown.

“I couldn’t believe it,” Miller said. “I was looking for people, and I couldn’t find anyone. At the last second, I found Rondell and launched it.”

Willingham had 125 rushing yards on 24 carries and a score, a two-yarder, for Rich East (4-1, 2-0). Miller had a 16-yard rushing touchdown and added another score in the air, a nine-yard pass to Anthony Perkins, for the Rockets.

“One breakdown,” coach Terrell Alexander said. “Great throw. Great catch. I probably should have backed the guy up 30 or 40 yards, but they had been beating us underneath. There was enough time for a couple more plays so you cant go absolute prevent (defense). It was just a nice throw.”

Central quarterback Devonte Black finished 12 of 21 for 285 yards and two touchdowns while rushing for one more for Rich Central (2-3, 1-1). Shawn Mitchell caught both touchdowns, 35 and 52 yards, ending with seven catches for 183 yards.

Shepard 50, Reavis 26
Jimmy McClinton rushed for 3 TDs and threw for 2 more for Shepard (3-2, 2-1 South Suburban Red).

Andrew 44, Thornridge 6
Tyler Hook threw 3 TD passes for Andrew (2-3, 2-1).

Mount Carmel 35, Brother Rice 24
It was Brandon Greer's night! The Central Michigan-bound senior rushed for a career-high 240 yards and three touchdowns on 16 carries to lead Mount Carmel to a 35-24 victory over Brother Rice Friday night at Gately Stadium.

"He (Greer) is awesome," said Mount Carmel quarterback Don Butkus, who scored two touchdowns. "He's an amazing athlete. He helps us out so much. He controls the game."

The Caravan scored touchdowns on their first four possessions but had to survive some tense moments in the second half to remain undefeated heading into next Saturday's showdown with Loyola.

Bolingbrook 41, Homewood-Flossmoor 28

Bolingbrook's goal was to take the Homewood-Flossmoor crowd out of the game, it took them just a quarter to accomplish it.

Bolingbrook jumped out to a 27-point lead and never looked back after obtaining a 41-28 victory over the Homewood-Flossmoor.

"We capitalized on their mistakes early, and they did the same in the second half," said Bolingbrook coach John Ivlow, whose team will play Lincoln-Way East next week. "Are we 40 points better than them? Probably not. I think the final score is more realistic."

The Raiders also outrushed the Vikings 269-4 in the first half.

The Viking never gave up scoring 21 consecutive points in the second half and had a chance to pull within a possession early in the fourth.

Aaron Bailey of Bolingbrook finished with 23 carries for 154 yards and 3 TDs. Homewood-Flossmoor was led by quarterback Tim Williams (13-for-28, 193 yards, 3 TDs, 2 INTs) and Sean Jones who grabbed 4 catches for 102 yards and 2 TDs.

Crete-Monee 35, Kankakee 7
Have you ever witnessed a game where it was truly over at halftime? If not, you should have been at the Crete-Monee vs Kankakee game Friday night, as the Warriors jumped out early and often for a 35-7 victory.

Junior quarterback Marcus Terrell threw first-half touchdowns of 53 and 58 yards to wide receiver LaQuan Treadwell. Terrell finished with 6-of-10 passes for 169 yards.

The Warriors built a 32-0 halftime lead on touchdown runs of 2 and 4 yards by running back Kenneth Kidd (18 carries, 107 yards) and 1 yard by Kyle Tilley. The Warriors did not throw a pass in the second, in a show of high school class, but Carlos Posada booted a 32-yard field goal in the third quarter.

“We wanted to get the victory and leave the game healthy,’’ Warriors coach Jerry Verde said. “We did that.’’

Rich South 6, Bloom 2
Brandon Zachery tossed a 33-yard TD pass to his brother Jaylen in the fourth quarter to give Rich South (2-3, 2-0) the win.

Lemont 49, Tinley Park 20
Chris Giatras had 18 carries for 151 yards, 2 catches for 76 yards and 2 TD runs; Tyler Jay added 2 TD catches of 22 and 27 yards for Lemont (5-0).
