SHARE Brown keys Joliet West win over Lockport

It was just like Jordan Brown envisioned it.

The Joliet West running back scored on runs of 26 and 79 yards as the Tigers used big plays to register a 28-7 victory over Lockport in a SouthWest Suburban Blue clash Friday night in Lockport.

The victory improved Joliet West to 3-4, 2-3 and kept its playoff hopes alive. The Porters fell to 1-6, 1-4.

“Our coach (Jason Aubry) has us imagine two big plays before every game,” Brown said. “That’s what I did and it happened just like I thought.”

Jorge Guzman recovered a fumbled snap on a Lockport punt attempt to set up the Tigers at the Porters 26. On the next play, Brown bounced to the left side and raced in from there. A two-point conversion gave the Tigers an early 8-0 lead.

Less than three minutes later Niko Messino also broke free on the left side for a 37-yard scoring burst and Joliet West led 15-0 with 4:45 left in the first quarter.

Lockport closed the gap to 21-7 on an 11-yard touchdown run by Tyler Johnson (14 carries, 95 yards) just over three minutes into the third quarter.
