Evanston 17, Glenbrook South 14

THE SKINNY

Evanston scored the final 14 points of the game to beat visiting Glenbrook South (4-2 overall, 0-2 CSL South), which led 14-3 early in the fourth quarter Friday. Wildkits senior quarterback Chris Little connected with senior receiver Sam Bordo for two touchdowns, including the game-winning, 8-yard score that came with 2:02 remaining in the contest.

TURNING POINT

Glenbrook South star receiver Cody Carroll, a senior, suffered a game-ending, upper-body injury in the second quarter. Bordo’s 50-yard touchdown, a short catch and nifty run with 9:03 remaining in the fourth, gave the Wildkits (4-2, 1-1) belief. The home team had moved the ball fairly well all night, but with little to show for its efforts.

THE STARS

Bordo caught eight passes for 167 yards and two scores. Glenbrook South senior Brett Laurie scored on a 61-yard run on the game’s second play and caught an 18-yard touchdown pass from junior Fitz Stadler early in the fourth quarter.

BY THE NUMBERS

Little completed 19 of 34 passes for 236 yards and two touchdowns. He hit five different receivers. Wildkits kicker Joshua Lustig got his team on the scoreboard with a 29-yard field goal with 9:06 remaining in the third. Evanston trailed 7-3 at that point.

QUOTABLE

“This is the third time in six games we’ve come from behind to win. That takes a resilient group of guys. We played as one unit and were able to put it together when we needed to down the stretch.” — Evanston coach Mike Burzawa
