The Kewanee Boilermakers remained undefeated last Friday after beating the Bureau Valley Storm 49 to 21. Quarterback Will Bruno threw 5 touchdown passes as the Boilers took advantage of the struggling secondary of the Bureau Valley Storm. It was close at the half but the Boilers came out swinging in the 3rd quarter with three touchdowns in the 3rd to seal the win. The Boilermakers will put their undefeated record on the line in a Homecoming match up against fellow undefeated team, The Princeton Tigers. Princeton moved Mendota out of the realm of the undefeated by beating the Trojans 28 to 7 in a hard fought battle last Friday night.
As for the 3-1 Mendota Trojans they are off until Saturday afternoon at 2 Pm when they will welcome the Hall Red Devils. The Red Devils are 2 and 2 following a big win over the Morrison Mustangs last Friday night, 44 to 20. The Red Devils power running game was the difference maker as they grounded and pounded the Mustangs defense.
The Morrison Mustangs fell to 0-4 with the loss to Hall and will have to hope to record their first win of the season on Friday night against Sherrard. Coach Brandon Johnston’s Sherrard Tigers are also winless thus far in 2021 having been outscored by their opponents 206 to 20 over four games. Last Friday, Sherrard lost to Mon-Rose 48 to 13.
Now at 3 and 1 on the season, Mon-Rose has a three game winning streak going into Friday’s match up against the 2 and 2 Rockridge Rockets. The Rockets came up short in a barn burner against Erie-Prophetsown last week, a game that swung back and forth into the final minutes when Erie-Prophetstown held of a final charge by the Rockets to win 50 to 48.
With their win over Rockrige, the E-P Panthers have won two games in a row as they travel to Orion to take on a tough minded Chargers squad. Orion followed up back to back losses by walloping the Riverdale Rams last Friday, 41-0. There is no rest for the weary Rams as they travel on Saturday at 1 Pm to play the St. Bede Bruins.
The Bruins are coming off another close call victory as they survived a tough game against Newman Central Catholic, 13 to 7. The Bruins running game was held to under 100 yards by the Central defense and one touchdown. The difference maker for the Bruins was Senior kicker Stephen Shaver who kicked an extra point and two key field goals in the win. Newman Central Catholic will have that tough defense on their home field on Friday night against Bureau Valley.
