SHARE Fast start sends Maine South past New Trier


The Maine South football team scored on its first four possessions and six of seven in the first half to win for fourth time in a row Friday in Northfield. Six of the team’s first eight plays went for first downs, and sophomore Brian Collis got the team into the end zone with his 20-yard pass to junior Vinny Labus.


Maine South senior Jack Perez blocked a punt, and the Hawks (4-2 overall, 2-0 CSL South) scored on the next play when Collis connected with senior George Sajenko for an 8-yard pass. That gave Maine South a 21-0 lead with 10:58 to go in the half.


For the second consecutive week, Maine South senior Clay Burdelik found big holes. He finished with nine carries for 147 yards and three touchdowns, all in the first half.


Maine South scored 40-plus points for the fourth time in four weeks. Collis threw three touchdowns in the first two quarters to lead the Hawks to a 42-10 advantage at intermission. For New Trier (3-3, 1-1), senior Jordan Garrett ran seven times for 81 yards, including his 67-yard touchdown run in the second quarter.


“That was one of our better drives of the season. We moved the ball quickly and effectively. We were firing on all cylinders.” — Collis on the opening series
