Stacey Smith, Schaumburg run past Conant

SHARE Stacey Smith, Schaumburg run past Conant


After a slow first half that saw No. 19 Schaumburg (6-0, 2-0) take a 6-0 halftime lead, both teams exploded offensively in the third quarter for three touchdowns apiece, but the Saxons were able to grind out a Mid-Suburban West road victory over Conant (4-2, 1-1).


With Schaumburg’s kicking game looking suspect after two missed extra points and a missed 23-yard field goal, the Saxons elected to go for it on 4th-and-3 from the Conant 16-yard line with a little over nine minutes left in the fourth quarter and converted on running back Justice Macneal-Young’s 10-yard run. Schaumburg scored three plays later on quarterback Stacey Smith’s five-yard touchdown pass to Ryan Tuma to put the Saxons ahead 33-21.


Smith was 4-for-12 for 90 yards passing and a touchdown and ran 17 times for 215 yards and three touchdowns — all in the second half.


Sadarriss Patterson had the other two rushing touchdowns for Schaumburg.


“The big plays came late, but we’re a team and we came together to pull out the win,.” – Stacey Smith
