SHARE Bolingbrook cashes in on Joliet Central miscues

When did you last see two football teams combine for 17 turnovers?

If you attended No. 1 Bolingbrook’s 54-6 Southwest Suburban Blue victory at Joliet Central on Saturday, there’s your answer.

Central (0-3, 0-1) committed 11 turnovers and absorbed a 54-6 thumping. Despite building a 40-0 halftime lead to switch on the running clock for the entire second half, Bolingbrook (3-0, 1-0) lost six fumbles.

“We had two JV games canceled and haven’t played one yet, so that was the first real work for some of our twos and threes,” said Raiders coach John Ivlow, who was not overly concerned.

“Our turnovers weren’t for lack of effort and that’s why they’re disheartening,” said Central coach Brett Boyter, whose team lost eight fumbles, threw an interception and failed to cover two kickoffs not intended as onside kicks.

Bolingbrook quarterback Aaron Bailey hit 4-of-6 passes for 82 yards, including three early strikes covering 63 yards to wide receiver Chandler Piekarski.

Central was limited to 80 total yards but spoiled the shutout when Carlos Curry hit Romello Clark with a 48-yard touchdown pass in the fourth quarter.

Bolingbrook’s defense scored twice. Emile Wisdom recovered a fumble caused by Julian Huff in the end zone and Nana Appah ran 36 yards with a fumble recovery.
