Hersey 49, Glenbrook North 13
STAR: Hersey quarterback Quinn Orlandi finished 14-for-18 for 195
yards and four touchdowns and ran for another 74 yards and two
touchdowns. Ed Miklasz caught three TDs, two from Orlandi, and David
Jackowski caught two.
MOMENT: After scoring right before the half, the Huskies forced
Glenbrook North to a three-and-out to start the third quarter and
proceeded to add to their advantage with a 10-play scoring drive.
Orlandi’s 7-yard TD pass to Miklasz made it 35-13 with 5:55 to go and
all but knocked out the Spartans.
QUOTE: “We have to be more physical, and we made too many errors. But
they made big plays. They are a solid team on both sides of the ball.”
— Glenbrook North coach Bob Pieper
BREAKDOWN: The Huskies (1-0) also beat the Spartans (0-1) in last
year’s opener before finishing 4-5. But coach Dragan Teonic has Hersey
eyeing its first playoff appearance since 2004.
