SHARE Smith leads Crete-Monee past Moline

Trevon Smith is listed as a cornerback on the Crete-Monee roster.

He got his chance on offense Friday night and responded with three touchdowns as No. 5 Crete-Monee rolled over Moline 34-2.

“I’ve been working hard and just waited for my chance,” Smith said. “Our guys up front made

it easy. They opened some big holes for me to run through.”

Smith got his chance at running back after starter DeShaun Smith had to leave with an injury.

Smith scored on runs of 7 and 11 yards in helping Crete-Monee (3-0) take a 21-2 halftime lead. He added a 9-yard run with 6:30 left to play to close the scoring.

The Warriors defense also was tough. It allowed Moline just 48 yards rushing and no first downs in the first half.

Crete-Monee’s other touchdowns came on a 15-yard pass from Marcus Terrell to Lance Lenoir and a 7-yard pass from Terrell to Kyle Tilley. Terrell finished 13-of-23 for 249 yards.
