...upset No. 1 Hinsdale Central, 34-26. Or, as the Sun-Times would have it, No. 1 Wheaton Warrenville South held off No. 3 Hinsdale Central. Or maybe the Sun-Times just beat the Tribune. Whatever. The stage is now set for WWS to travel to No. 4 (or No. 2) Maine South next Friday for what will surely be the game of the week. (I'll take the home team Hawks, who were victorious in their opener against Schaumburg, 64-35.)
In other games of interest, Glenbrook South defeated Minooka, 38-14; Loyola beat Evanston, 23-7; and Fenwick blanked Rock Island, 32-0.
Elsewhere in the state, No. 8 Mt. Carmel beat Simeon, 53-27; No. 9 Joliet Catholic defeated Carmel, 19-16; No. 10 Providence lost to Lincoln-Way East, 28-7; and No. 19 Brother Rice fell to No.20 Morgan Park, 32-10. St. Rita plays Portage (Ind.) today.
Oh, and Big Foot beat Harvard, 48-7 (at least that's what the Trib said). I guess the old beast got bored out in the forests of the Pacific Northwest and flew into Boston and took those Ivy Leaguers to school while everyone else was distracted by Ted Kennedy's funeral.
