With 10 seconds to play, Simeon kicker Raekwon Adams lined up for a potential game-winning 30-yard field goal against defending Class 6A champion Crete-Monee. The kick was ruled wide right, and the Warriors (3-0) escaped with the victory.


The Warriors scored the final and eventual winning points on a fourth-and-goal, 6-yard touchdown pass to Kevon Love from Frank Douglass that was nearly picked off.


Douglass finished 10-for-24 for 115 yards and two touchdown passes against one interception.


Simeon (0-3) struck first on a 24-yard interception return by Malik Parker to take a 6-0 lead. The Warriors responded before the end of the half on a 11-yard screen pass to DeShaun Smith from Frank Douglass to take a 7-6 advantage.


“It’s better to be lucky than good sometimes. That was by far the most physical team we have played all season.” — first-year Crete coach John Konecki
