Quincy Woods scored three touchdowns and the Raiders defense was dominant. Bolingbrook, which qualified for the playoffs for the 22nd straight season, improved to 9-0 overall and 7-0 in the SouthWest Suburban Blue. Sandburg fell to 5-4, 4-3, but the Eagles should have enough points for an at-large bid, their sixth straight and 26th in the past 30 years.
Sandburg closed to within 21-6 on a 30-yard TD pass from Zac Zavod to Rasheed Carney with 7:51 to play in the game. But Bolingbrook scored two touchdowns in 15 seconds, the final one on a 32-yard burst by Woods with 4:48 remaining.
Woods attempted just one pass, but ran 20 times for 171 yards. He scored on runs of 12, 19 and 33 yards.
BY THE NUMBERS
Dariel Greer was 5-of-7 passing for 91 yards and had a 38-yard pass to Parrker Westphal. Mike Valentine scored on a three-yard run to put the Raiders ahead 28-6 with 5:03 to play in the game. Bernard Flowers added a fumble recovery for Bolingbrook, which limited the Eagles to 61 total yards.
“Our defense is great. We know they’re a big part of our game. If they play well, we can’t be beat.”— Woods
