SHARE Aaron Bailey powers Bolingbrook win

The star

Bolingbrook quarterback Aaron Bailey (149 yards, 21 carries) scored on runs of one, two and eight yards and threw a 32-yard touchdown pass to Brandon Lewis.

The moment

After a close first half, senior running back John Howard took a pitch 24 yards down the left side to give Bolingbrook a 20-6 advantage with 8:31 left in the third quarter.

The quote

“We were very anxious to get out here. It feels good to get that one win out of the way. Our defense really did great, they really helped us out, got us great field position.’’ — Bailey

The breakdown

Bailey nearly broke free on the second play from scrimmage before Plainfield South’s Sean Dermody made a touchdown-saving tackle at the Cougars’ 37-yard line, holding Bailey to a 46-yard gain. Bailey’s two-yard touchdown run capped a 15-play, 92-yard drive for a 7-0 first-quarter lead. His 32-yard pass to Lewis put Bolingbrook ahead 14-6 after a 43-yard scoring run by Plainfield South’s Joshua Harris had cut the Raiders’ lead to 7-6.
