Newman (7-1) 47-12 Fulton (4-4)

 

The Newman Comets came out absolutely on fire against the Fulton Steamers with 426 rushing yards. The Comets were able to consistently gash the Steamers defense with big plays. The main contributor on offense was Connor McBride who carried the ball 13 times for 200 yards and three touchdowns. Mcbride had touchdown runs of 70,69, and 6 yards. Also, near the end of the third quarter McBride provided another big play with a 80 yard kick-off return touchdown. Quarterback Brycen Bartel took a quarterback keeper 69 yards for a touchdown on his only run of the game and fullback Luke Olsen carried the ball eight times for 97 yards and two touchdowns. Out of Olsen's 97 rushing yards, 56 yards came on a long touchdown run in the fourth quarter. The Comets looked a lot sharper than last week against Hall where they turned the ball over twice and had countless penalties. The Comets have now won five in a row and will match up with Riverdale in the last regular season game of the year. 

 

Sterling (8-0) 49-12 LaSalle-Peru (3-5)

 

The Sterling Golden Warriors continued to roll remaining undefeated as they dominated LP 49-12. The Warriors racked up over 400 yards of offense in the first half and quarterback Cooper Wilman had 127 rushing yards with three touchdowns. Quarterback Camden Bailey went a perfect 9 for 9 for 208 passing yards and two touchdowns. Receiver Alek Duran has been relatively quite this season, but broke out with two touchdown grabs and also a rushing touchdown. The Warrior defense held LaSalle-Peru in check limiting them to under 67 yards of offense in the first half. The 12 points LP was able to muster came in the second half against the second team defense. The Golden Warriors will finish its regular season against the Sycamore Spartans, who just came off a 36-6 victory over Geneseo, this upcoming Friday.

 

Rock Falls (1-7) 34-6 Mendota (0-8)

 

The Rockets were able to break their seven game losing streak as they beat up the Trojans. The Rockets changed things up this week and relied on their running game producing over 350 yards on the ground. The Rock Falls defense swarmed to the ball and caused a lot of negative plays. In previous occasions the Rock Falls offense was able to put up points, but the defense was unable to make the necessary stops to put them in a position to win. The Rockets will have another opportunity to grab another win this Friday as they take on Rockford Lutheran this Friday.

 

Rockridge (6-2) 37-25 Morrison (2-6)
