  • Leudo has St. Viator headed to supersectional Oct 27, 2012 7:55 PM
    In a test of endurance, will and plenty of patience, top-seeded St. Viator earned a hard-fought 1-0 victory Saturday afternoon over Harvard (17-6-2) to capture the Grayslake Central sectional crown and a spot in the Class 2A Hampshire supersectional Tuesday evening against East Moline United. Mateo Leudo helped snap the Lions (18-3-3) out of 50-minute malaise when he cut across the face of the goal to head a marvelous serve from Troy Wheeler.

  • Burlington Central denies Harvard Sep 14, 2012 10:26 PM
    Joe Breeden was just trying to let the punt bounce into the end zone. But like a guided missile, it found him and he caught it almost out of self-defense. Breeden seemingly shrugged and took off up the left sideline. Ninety-two yards later, Breeden was in the end zone and Burlington Central had a 14-3 lead against Harvard. The Rockets held on to win, 21-9, in Big Northern East Friday action at Dan Horne Field.

  • Big Northern East still goes through Richmond Aug 23, 2012 9:23 PM
    When is a question more like an answer? When the question pertains to Richmond-Burton's ability to reload and still challenge for the Big Northern Conference's East Division title. Entering last season it seemed as though the Rockets' run of back-to-back division titles was in jeopardy. They opened the campaign with new players at 17 of 22 positions following an 11-1 finish in 2010. They were vulnerable, right?

    Poms, flag teams and dancers from more than 100 high schools throughout Illinois are converging on the Peoria Civic Center today for one of prep sports' most colorful state championships.

  • Hampshire fights to the end Oct 22, 2010 10:43 PM
    On the game’s last play, Hampshire’s Lorenzo Brandon ran around right end, broke a couple of tackles, and raced 15 yards into the end zone. The play made the score Harvard 43, Hampshire 12, but it illustrated how the Whip-Purs never gave up on a season filled with adversity. Hampshire kept fighting to the end of a 1-8 season and it was appropriate that Brandon, who missed most of the year with a separated shoulder, got into the end zone on the last play. The Whips played much better than the score indicated. They outgained the Hornets (4-5, 2-3), 265 yards to 247 and had a 16-11 first down edge, but did themselves in with mistakes. Hampshire lost 2 fumbles on its first 3 plays from scrimmage. The Whips threw an interception and dropped a boatload of passes. “It’s tough to get a start like that,” said Hampshire coach Dan Cavanaugh. “When you start off like that, to put our defense in that position early on, with a short field, it’s just hard.” Hampshire’s first two drives ended with fumbles. Harvard recovered at the Hampshire 26 both times and cashed both in for scored to lead 14-0 after one period. The Hornets added a third score following a short Hampshire punt. The Whips got on the board on a fourth-down pass from Chase Lundry to Nick Antonacci, but the Hornets answered right back to lead 29-6 at halftime. Lundry passed for 102 yards and ran for 66. He completed just 7 of 26 attempts but many of the incompletions were dropped, including a sure touchdown pass in the end zone. Antonacci added 59 yards on the ground for Hampshire. Matt Smith scored on 3 short runs and Collin Nolen caught a pair of touchdown passes for Harvard.

  • Scouting Harvard at Hampshire Oct 21, 2010 11:41 PM
    Harvard (3-5, 1-3) at Hampshire (1-7, 1-3) When: today at 7 p.m. at Hampshire Athletic Field Last year: Harvard 33, Hampshire 20 Last week: Marengo 44, Hampshire 21; Richmond-Burton 58, Harvard 35 Outlook: Hampshire’s final tour through the Big Northern Conference has been a difficult one. The Whip-Purs enter Week 9 with just one victory to their credit: a 21-20 victory at North Boone (4-4). When one injured Whip-Pur would return to the lineup, it seemed another would be added to the injury list. With injuries to multiple two-way players, the roster was stretched thin early in the season and remained thin. Thus, a victory in the season finale would act as the salve Hampshire has sought for weeks. “We want to go out giving our seniors a win,” Hampshire coach Dan Cavanaugh said. “That’s something we’ve talked about. It’s been a very frustrating year and that would go a long way toward making things a little bit better. It’s about the seniors. They’ve put in four good years.”

  • Westergaard, BC get past Harvard Oct 8, 2010 11:13 PM
    Shortly after Burlington Central honored its 2010 Hall of Fame Class during halftime of Friday night’s game, senior running back Brandon Westergaard turned in a hall of fame performance of his own. Westergaard had 3 touchdowns and an interception in the fourth quarter of the Rockets’ 33-24 victory over Harvard in Big Northern Conference East action. Westergaard also led the Rockets’ with 220 yards on the ground as Central (2-5, 2-1) finished with a whopping 467 rushing yards in the victory. “The offensive line, this is one of those games where those guys should get as many accolades as possible, Rockets coach Aaron Wichman said. “They controlled the line of scrimmage. Controlling the line of scrimmage allowed Central to run for 256 yards in the second half including a 92-yard scoring run from Westergaard to give Central a 19-16 lead with 11:31 left in the game after trailing 16-13 entering the final period. Central’s defense held Harvard (3-4, 1-2) to a 3-and-out on its next possession and Westergaard made the Hornets pay. He capped off 7-play, 51-yard drive with a 4-yard scoring run giving Central a 25-16 with 7:01 left to play. The senior was no where close to being finished. With Harvard driving, Westergaard picked off quarterback Timmy Linhart when his pass bounced off receiver Matt Smith. The play came after a defensive holding penalty had set the Hornets up with a first-and-10 from the Rockets’ 39. Westergaard again did the job on offense, this time putting in a 4-yard scoring run after an 11-play drive covering 68 yards. “When the holes were there, we had to hit them, said Westergaard, who finished with a career high in rushing yards. “Once you get the momentum going, it all keeps rolling. Central extended its lead when Tre Llanes converted a botched snap into a 2-point conversion after Westergaard’s final score putting Central ahead 33-16 with just 1:37 remaining. Linhart did rally and find Collin Nolen on a 15-yard pass play with 18 seconds left. Where Westergaard did the damage in the fourth quarter, Llanes did it early on. The senior finished with 148 yards and scored on a 57-yard touchdown run with only 5 seconds left in the first half to give Central a 13-9 lead at halftime. He also put the Rockets up 6-3 when he rushed in for a 15-yard score with 35 seconds left in the first half. Rockets quarterback Ryan Ritchie added 97 yards on the ground. Harvard got 109 yards and a pair of touchdowns from Matt Smith in the loss.
