  • Aurora Christian avoids letdown Sep 2, 2011 12:00 AM
    It would have been easy for Aurora Christian to have a letdown this week against Chicago Academy, a team they crushed last year, a week after they defeated a rival and top-rated opponent in Stillman Valley and with the always daunting SCC schedule looming in the weeks ahead. Junior safety Brandon Mayes made sure that didn’t happen when he intercepted a pass on the first play of the game and returned it inside the Cougars’ 30-yard line. Eagles quarterback Anthony Maddie took just three plays to convert the turnover into a score when he hit Corey Windle with a 16-yard pass in the corner of the end zone. The Eagles had the lead and the game wasn’t even one minute old. “Every game we want to come out hot,” said Mayes of his team’s early defensive play. “I was just going through my reads and staying disciplined, that’s the one thing that we did as a defense, we did a good job of staying disciplined.” The Eagles (2-0) stayed hot the entire game, blowing out Chicago Academy 48-0.
