Glenbrook South 42, New Trier 14
With star senior wide receiver Cody Carroll sidelined after breaking his collarbone in last week’s loss at Evanston, Glenbrook South (5-2 overall, 1-2 CSL South) got it done on the ground against New Trier (3-4, 1-2) Friday night. Three Titans — seniors Mike Gentile, Brett Laurie and Steven Schroeder — each rushed for over 100 yards in Glenview.
New Trier led 7-0 and 14-7, but Glenbrook South’s Laurie evened the game up with a 28-yard burst for a touchdown early in the second quarter. Glenbrook South then took the lead for good on senior Paul Jones’ 59-yard touchdown catch with 8:37 remaining in the first half.
Laurie got the job done on the ground and through the air, catching three passes for 55 yards. Jones had four catches for 81 yards and a touchdown filling in for Carroll. New Trier junior running back Kevin Mulhern had a 74-yard touchdown run after returning from a groin injury that kept him out of last week’s game against Maine South.
BY THE NUMBERS
Gentile carried 20 times for 118 yards and three touchdowns, Laurie had eight carries for 110 yards and a touchdown and Schroeder rushed 16 times for 101 yards and a score.
“Ground game was really good, the (offensive) line was really good. I thought we controlled the line of scrimmage. That was the key to winning.” — Glenbrook South coach Mike Noll
