Thursday night football was fantastic.


Prospect 43 Maine South 42 - down two scores in the 2nd half MS looked to be finished when Prospect completed a 80+ yard pass down to the MS 1 except the play gets called back for some home cooking. The next play a batter pass gets intercepted for the 6 yard pick 6 to bring the Hawks within 7. MS would go on to score the next two TDs in the 4th to take a 41-34 lead with around 3 mins remaining. Prospect marches down the field and scores a TD and goes for two with less than a min remaining. And seals the deal.


A second game Glenbrook South and Palatine also came down to a 2pt conversion with less than a minute remaining in a game in the 40's, where Glenbrook South sprung the upset. Maybe this is the year Glenbrook South can knock off Maine South 🤔

Good night of football with some interesting and frightful scores

Mt. Carmel (4-0) 42 Marist (2-2) 7 - this was close early on maybe halfway through the 2nd qtr then the floodgates opened. Game against Loyola can't come quick enough.


St. Charles North (3-1) 22 Wheaton North (3-1) 21 - North Stars pull off the upset of defending 7A champs the week after WN upset 7A favorite Batavia. This conference race will be interesting

Jacobs (4-0) 42 Prairie Ridge (3-1) 35 - 6A stalwart goes down.


Homewood-Flossmoor (3-1) 35 Lockport (3-1) 20 - Vikings take down 8A defending champ after opening up a 27-0 1st half lead


Joliet Catholic (4-0) 49 Providence (2-2) 41 - Hilltoppers down a couple scores late rally to defeat their local rival and remain undefeated 


Neuqua Valley (3-1) 29 Naperville North (3-1) 16 - North came in highly ranked in this cross town matchup. Neuqua seems to be finding their footing after losing their best player and star QB midway through week 2


Lotta higher ranked teams fell last night.

Week 5 top games 

Batavia (2-2) @ Glenbard North (2-2) - two teams you expect to be competitive in the post season in a virtual must win. Each has 3 possible losses still on the schedule after this game.


St. Charles North (3-1) @ Geneva (4-0) - last two teams undefeated in conference play. Winner is in the cat bird seat followed by the loser, two teams up previously mentioned, defending 7A champ Wheaton North, then Wheaton South.


Plainfield North (4-0) @ Yorkville (4-0) - likely the unlikely conference championship game as typical conference champ candidates seem down and these two are up.


Bolingbrook (3-1) @ Lincoln Way East (4-0) - after LWE steamrolled Batavia in week 2 this is the next best bet to give the Griffins a competitive game. Raiders have the offensive firepower to do so, but the defense?


St. Ignatius (3-1) @ Mt. Carmel (4-0) - Iggy shocked the world when they manhandled the Caravan last season 24-0. Look for MC to exact some revenge.

After a couple weeks off...

Mt. Carmel had a comeback win over Loyola 42-37 yesterday to solidify their #1 ranking in the state. Loyola held a 24-14 lead at half.


Playoffs, you wanna talk about playoffs?


The brackets are out. Mt. Carmel looks like the heavy 7A favorite. Typically I would take the field over any one team, this year I'll take the Caravan. On theirnside of the bracket there may be a fee possible stumbling blocks: rematch with Bro. Rice, St. Charles North who beat MC in 2018 playoffs, Prospect and their prolific QB... Can't forget about the defending champs Wheaton North.


6A looks to be a collision course between Simeon and ESL in the lower bracket, with the winner odds on favorite to take home the hardware. But as last year showed, you never know. Last years champs didn't even make the playoff field.


In 8A you have favorites Loyola and Lincoln Way East who are on opposite sides of the bracket despite Loyola's loss yesterday. Look for possible challenges to either team throughout the bracket. I would say LWE is more likely to lose than LA prior to the finals but both are favorites to make it. LWE needed overtime Friday to defeat lowly Bradley.


My reg season final top 10:


1. Mt. Carmel

2. Loyola

3. Simeon

4. Lincoln Way East

5. East St. Louis

6. York

7. Hersey

8. Prospect

9. Glenbard West

10. St. Charles North
