No. 11 Crete-Monee 27, Evanston 7
After a slow start, the Crete-Monee Warriors have taken control after two quarters against the Evanston Wildkits on Friday night.
Following a 35-yard touchdown pass from Chris Little to Sam Bordo put Evanston up 7-0 barely two minutes into the game, Crete rattled off four straight TDS to close out the first half – including a 35-yard fumble return by Jonathan Draper midway through the second quarter.
It was Draper’s second fumble recovery of the game and happened a minute after Rashard Harris put the Warriors up 13-7 with a 20-yard TD run. Quarterback Frank Douglas has thrown for one score and ran one in from 5yards to complete the first-half scoring.

Marist 48, Brother Rice 7
The RedHawks jumped to an early lead thanks to a huge passing day from Jack Donegan and a pair of interceptions.
Donegan threw six touchdown passes -- three each to Flynn Nagel and Nic Weishar (8 catches, 148 yards).
Lineman Isaiah Bickhem added a highlight-worthy 97-yard interception return for a touchdown.
Luke Mueller added five catches for 59 yards for the Crusaders. Marcus Jones had a 4-yard scoring run.
Providence 28, Minooka 7
Providence senior tailback Dominic Lagone has carried the Celtics, rushing for 125 yards and three touchdowns. Lagone has scored on runs of 3, 2 and 7 yards, with Providence scoring touchdowns on four of its last five first-half drives.
The Indians have struggled moving the ball, aside from a 60-yard touchdown catch from Zach Zamora. Minooka junior tailback Nathan Gunn has carried the ball six times for 9 yards. Providence junior wide receiver Miles Boykin didn't touch the ball until the final drive, taking a reverse for a 3-yard run, then turning a screen into a 37-yard tackle-breaking touchdown.

No. 5 Lake Zurich 10, Cary-Grove 0
It’s been a defensive struggle in the first two quarters between No. 5 Lake Zurich and Cary-Grove. Host Lake Zurich stretched its lead to 10-0 with 1.6 seconds left in the half on a 23-yard field goal from A.J. Trittschuh, which capped a seven-play drive that started at its own 37 with no timeouts.
Before the field goal, the game’s lone score came with 3 minutes, 18 seconds left in the first quarter on Ben Klett’s 20-yard scamper. Lake Zurich (1-0) took over that possession on the Trojans’ 32 after a shanked punt and Klett, now with four scores this season, ran the ball on all three plays.
