As stated, many teams opened their playbooks and demonstrated that they are going to be a tough opponent this weekend. But first... let's give a shout-out to Mother Nature, who provided the Chicagoland area with some excellent football weather. At many points over the weekend, you couldn't find a cloud with a NASA telescope, which helped packed the stands throughout the Will-Cook-Kankakee Youth Association (WCK).

One thing is for sure, WCK has some terrific fans.

NOTE: One game (varsity), between University Park and Park Forest, was played under protest. More details to come...

In the inaugural Blue & Orange Classic game, hosted by Eastside Bulldogs featured the Matteson Bears. In short, home field proved to give the advantage to the Bulldogs, who captured all four trophies (14-13, 6-0, 33-0, and 44-6).

In the JV game, the Bulldogs opened up lots of offense, and got into the end zone early and often against the absent head coach for the Bears - Virgil Giles. Mr. Rashard Willingham struck first with a 42-yard sprint in the first quarter, followed shortly by Mr. Ariez Andrew. The Bulldogs jumped out to a 13-0 lead within 8 minutes of play. Three other players also scored on the afternoon: Mr. Morion Burtis, Mr. Garion Hammond, and Mr. Tyron Hundley. Mr. Hundley received the final touchdown of the game with a 33-yard pass for touchdown reception.

In the final game, 'the MAIN EVENT,' it was all Bulldogs from start to finish. Mr. DaQuan Bell and DeBraun "Debo" Mayo got into the end zone twice. Mr. Bell scored the first two touchdowns in the game... one on a run and the other on a punt return for over 75 yards. Debo wasn't outshined by his teammate getting in the end zone. He scored on a 31-yard run on the Bulldogs first possession in the second quarter, but the icebreaker was when he ran two straight touchdowns that were called back due to penalties. The coaching staff called his number once more and on the third try, he cross the end zone.

The Bears did score in the third quarter from an interception and two plays later with a 31 yard pass.

Mr. Jerrico Johnson (Eastside - varsity)

Both varsity teams are now 1-1 and have a chance to see each other again - in the playoffs.

Other notable games in the WCK included three games where one team won all four contest: Country Club Hills Cougars swept the Kankakee Colts (25-0, 19-0, 20-19 (OT), and 20-12); Hazel Crest technical swept Chicago Heights on the field, but had to forfeit the JV game due to not having a team at this level (34-0, 35-0, forfeit and 35-0); Richton Park Raiders swept Chicago (33-0, 19-0, 26-6, and 37-0); and upstart Park Forest JV team continues their winning ways defeating University Park 26-6.
