SHARE Bolingbrook beats HF, tightens league race

Homewood-Flossmoor (7-6, 4-1), entered Friday’s SouthWest Suburban Blue battle at Bolingbrook atop the SWS Blue standings.

Late Friday night, the Vikings returned home still in first place but saddled with their first conference defeat. Bolingbrook (7-5, 3-1), led by junior guard Devon Sams’ third-quarter explosion, ambushed the Vikings, 65-55, to pull within a half-game of the league lead.

H-F went on an 8-0 run to cut a 14-point Bolingbrook lead to 36-30 with 3:36 left in the third quarter. Sams, recently returning from a knee injury, along with 6-foot-4 junior Dimitri Akenten (nine points, seven rebounds), ignited a 17-4 Raider run that concluded in the fourth quarter.
