Junior running back Scott Andrews had 17 carries for 150 yards and a touchdown. His 41-yard touchdown run in the fourth quarter gave Glenbard West a 38-10 lead with 7:35 left after Libertyville had pulled within 17-10 in the third quarter.
Nathan Marcus blocked a punt at the Libertyville 18-yard line and recovered it in the back of the end zone. It was the second of three touchdowns scored by the Hilltoppers (11-0) over a six-minute stretch spanning the third and fourth quarters.
“We attribute everything to our offensive line. Without them we’re not able to do anything.” — Glenbard West junior running back Devante Toney
Glenbard West kept Libertyville (8-3) deep in their own territory for much of the afternoon, sacking senior quarterback Jack Deichl nine times for a loss of 44 yards. Deichl was intercepted on his first pass attempt of the game. ”They were just really fast,” Deichl said. “We tried, but just couldn’t get things done.”
