No. 6 Benet 14, St. Viator 7
Benet is getting all it can handle from St. Viator at Benedictine University.
The Redwings have committed two turnovers and John Duvic missed a 23-yard field goal, but they still maintain a lead at the half.
Three of Benet's final four drives of the half ended poorlyt. After having a first-and-goal at the 5, Benet came away empty. Duvic’s missed kick came after a penalty negated a touchdown.
The one drive that went well during that stretch resulted in an 11-yard touchdown pass from Jack Beneventi to Patrick Peterson.
The Lions weren’t without their own setbacks, despite rolling up 157 yards of offense. Benet came in holding opponents to 151 yards total. Bobby Calmeyn finished the half 13-for-25 for 126 yards with one interception for the Lions.
Benet took a 7-0 lead on its first possession when Nick McTarnaghan plowed in from the 1 with 3 minutes, 32 seconds left in the first quarter.
The Lions answered less than two minutes later when Brian Peters ran in from the 3. It came two plays after Calmeyn hit Ben Dickey for a 52-yard gain.

No. 12 Wheaton Warrenville South 7, No. 9 Naperville Central 0
Wheaton Warrenville South has built its reputation by winning games in this fashion.
The Tigers’ formula of defense, special teams and a physical ground game was familiar to the homecoming crowd and responsible for their halftime advantage over Naperville Central on Friday night in Wheaton.
