THE SKINNY

T.F. South punched its ticket to the state playoffs with an imperative 39-6 victory over Lemont in South Suburban Blue play. The Rebels scored touchdowns on their first two possessions after an interception and blocked punt started both drives in their red zone.

THE TURNING POINT

Three plays following a Lemont punt that pinned T.F. South at its own 1-yard line, Kendall McCaskill ripped an 87-yard touchdown run for a 21-6 advantage.

THE STAR

T.F. South senior Taylor Fredrick was instrumental at the line of scrimmage. The 6-foot-5, 235 pound defensive end batted down a pass, blocked a punt and recovered a fumble to prompt a disruptive line.

THE NUMBERS

McCaskill totaled 115 yards and two touchdowns on 12 carries. Ka’ton Mays grabbed two interceptions for T.F. South (5-4, 3-3), which won the turnover battle 5-1. Jimmy Kepouros had a 51-yard touchdown reception for Lemont (3-6, 2-4).

QUOTABLE

“It took nine weeks for it to show, but we’re going. Now we’re in the playoffs and have to fight some more.” — Fredrick
