Glenbard West crushes Lyons with solid all-around performance

SHARE Glenbard West crushes Lyons with solid all-around performance

Glenbard West 44, Lyons 7


Lyons (1-3, 0-1) had a tremendous start as Leonard Ross took a pitch on the first play from scrimmage and raced 80 yards for a touchdown. It would be all Glenbard West (3-1, 2-0) after that as the Hilltoppers scored 44 unanswered points to win the West Suburban Silver matchup in Western Springs.


Giving up a long score on the first play of the game fired up the Hilltoppers’ defense. Ross gained just five more yards the rest of the night. A bad snap that led to a safety on a Lyons punt to start the second quarter was another big moment as it put Glenbard West up 9-7. The Hilltoppers would never trail again.


Glenbard West senior running back Scott Andrews had a monster night rushing for 195 yards on 18 carries.


Hilltoppers’ quarterback Drew Vogg was 7-for-13 for 99 yards and a touchdown.


“I had a breakout game last week and I just wanted to keep it going. I just found my holes and followed my blockers.” — Andrews
