THE SKINNY

Coming off a 35-34 home loss to Evergreen Park, Richards (5-1, 3-1) regrouped with a big South Suburban Red win Friday in Oak Lawn. The Bulldogs scored a touchdown on each of their four first-half possessions to go up 26-0 at halftime.

TURNING POINT

On a fourth-and-2 from the Richards 9-yard line early in the first, Reavis quarterback Jose Romero scrambled left but was met by Richards lineman Savon Robinson for a two-yard loss. After the turnover on downs, Richards scored on a 27-yard Hasan Muhammad-Rogers strike to Tacari Carpenter to go up 6-0 and never looked back.

THE STAR

Throwing for two touchdowns and 166 yards with two rushing scores on six carries for 50 yards, junior quarterback Muhammad-Rogers did it all for Richards.

BY THE NUMBERS

Carpenter added a 64-yard touchdown run on a sweep play while Ramonta Hill (eight carries, 139 yards) had a 55-yard touchdown run for the Bulldogs. Travis Liszewski finished with 17 carries and 96 rushing yards for Reavis (3-3, 2-2). The Rams need two wins over their final three games to be playoff eligible.

“We learned from the Evergreen loss that we can’t be content and on top of the world. We got a little big-headed, but we’re back down to Earth.” – Muhammad-Rogers
