THE SKINNY

Jaden Huff scored from two yards in overtime to catapult Bolingbrook to a 31-24 come-from-behind victory over host Homewood-Flossmoor in a SouthWest Suburban Blue first-place showdown.

TURNING POINT

Trailing 21-10 in the third quarter, Bolingbrook’s C.J. Clark scooped up a fumble by H-F quarterback Isaac Cutrara and strolled into the end zone from 10 yards out to cut the deficit to 21-16. The Vikings added a field goal to up their lead to 24-16.

However, a two-yard touchdown run by Quincy Woods with 6:15 to go in the fourth quarter and the subsequent two-point conversion pass by Dariel Greer to Huff tied the game at 24.

THE STAR

Woods turned from potential hero to goat. With the Raiders driving for a score in the final minutes, Woods fumbled at the H-F 8-yard line. The Vikings’ Devante Heard recovered with 1:04 left in regulation to force overtime.

BY THE NUMBERS

The combination of Huff and Woods combined for 177 of the Raiders 247 yards on the ground. Bolingbrook’s defense, led by Lee, Bernard Flowers, Eli Carbajal and Micah Dew-Treadway held H-F’s running game to 147 yards total and negative two yards in the second half.
