Hinsdale South 29, Proviso East 6   THE SKINNY Hinsdale South earned a much-needed victory to maintain its hopes of winning the West Suburban Gold title. The Hornets (1-3, 1-1) had four rushing touchdowns in the win, which kept the Pirates (0-4, 0-2) winless.   TURNING POINT When Proviso East snapped the ball over the punter’s head and out of the end zone for a safety on its first possession, it set the tone for the contest. Mistakes like that one and penalties throughout the game proved costly for the Pirates.   THE STAR Making just his second varsity start, junior quarterback Robert Regan didn’t put up dazzling numbers, but he directed the team’s run-oriented offense well. He rushed for 45 yards and scored three touchdowns.   BY THE NUMBERS Hinsdale South rushed for 230 yards and dominated the time of possession. Alex Holmstrom rushed for 87 yards and a TD, while Mike Fassero added 79 yards on 10 carries for the Hornets. Proviso East quarterback Lawrence Griffin completed 14-of-34 passes for 126 yards.   QUOTABLE “Our kids have worked so hard to get to this point. We’ve been competitive in every single game and just for whatever reason this is our first win. It’s a great sense of accomplishment.” — Hinsdale South coach Mike Barry
