Glenbrook South 46, Niles North 7   THE SKINNY   After falling behind 7-0, Glenbrook South (4-0) ran all over Niles North (1-3) on Friday night in Glenview, scoring 23 points in the first half and taking advantage of two safeties. The Vikings were without junior starting quarterback Tony Granato and junior starting running back Julian Garrett.   TURNING POINT   It wasn’t long before the outcome of this one wasn’t in doubt, but Titans senior tailback Michael Gentile ended any suspense after breaking free and going in untouched for a 64-yard touchdown run with a little more than 8 minutes remaining in the third quarter.    THE STAR

Gentile ran for 120 yards and two touchdowns on 10 carries. He also had two catches for 31 yards. His second rushing touchdown came in the fourth quarter after fighting into the end zone from inside the 2-yard line.

BY THE NUMBERS   The Titans outgained the Vikings 183-3 in the second half. Niles North took two sacks, fumbled and had a botched snap that resulted in a safety in the final two quarters.    QUOTABLE   “You’re never satisfied when you’re a coach. Too many penalties. Just have to play better next week. Conference play is going to be tough.” — Glenbrook South coach Mike Noll
