Glenbard West 55, Addison Trail 0


Using a ground and pound approach, Glenbard West dominated the ball, the clock and the game in a resounding West Suburban crossover matchup. As a team, the fifth-ranked Hilltoppers (7-1, 6-0) finished with 317 rushing yards on 45 carries, scoring seven rushing touchdowns.


This game was over from the start, but the Blazers (2-6, 2-4) were doomed when quarterback Mike Rybarczyk threw an interception on their second drive of the game. Glenbard West turned that into an easy touchdown and never looked back.


Senior running back Scott Andrews did most of his work in the first half, rushing for 99 yards and three touchdown in the game’s first two quarters. In his only carry of the second half, Andrews took a pitch and scampered 64 yards for another score. He finished with 163 rushing yards and four TDs on 16 carries.


Addison Trail couldn’t do much on offense and was forced to punt seven times during the game. Glenbard West only had to kick the ball away on fourth down once.


“We just wanted to come out fast and strong and be ready. I thought we played hard and played really well today.” – Andrews
