SHARE Richards’ defense continues to roll, shuts out Oak Lawn


Five different players scored touchdowns and Richards posted its fifth straight series win to improve to 7-1 overall and 5-1 in the South Suburban Red. Oak Lawn dropped to 2-6, 1-5.


After sitting out the first two series of the game, Hasan Muhammed-Rogers helped Richards score 20 points in four minutes and 38 seconds. Richards led 6-0 after a quarter and 32-0 at the half.


The Richards defense did not allow an Oak Lawn first down until the third quarter and conceded just two for the game. The Bulldogs posted their third straight shutout and fourth in the last five games. They’ve allowed 88 points in eight games.


Richards quarterback/receiver Spencer Tears ran for two touchdowns and Muhammed-Rogers ran for two scores and threw for another. The junior quarterback has scored 14 touchdowns in the last four games. Richards has outscored the opposition 112-0 the past three weeks.


“Our defense is really playing well. The (35-34) loss to Evergreen Park was a wake-up call. Since then, they’ve really pinned their ears back,” Richards coach Tony Sheehan said.
