NEWS > Week 1 football notes: Grand opening for Naperville North, others

By Mike Helfgot, Special to the Tribune
AUG 30, 2014

... Fresh starts: Several new coaches got off to promising starts in Week 1, none more so than Hinsdale Central's Dan Hartman.

Hartman's Red Devils knocked off Bolingbrook, the consensus No. 1 team in the Chicago area, 23-15.

Conference rivals Glenbard West and Oak Park-River Forest also registered impressive victories over ranked teams, but 23 points against a Bolingbrook defense with five Division I recruits means Hinsdale Central has to be considered a contender in the West Suburban Silver. ...

BOLINGBROOK — Because senior quarterback Matt Rafferty last played football as a sophomore, new Hinsdale Central coach Dan Hartman decided to take it a little slow to open the season Friday night in Bollingbrook.

That’s why Hartman’s first three plays from scrimmage were handoffs to junior Bradley Huth. Rafferty didn’t throw his first varsity pass until under three minutes remained in the first quarter.

But, on the second drive of his career, Rafferty struck paydirt when he hit senior receiver Thomas Ives for a 74-yard TD pass to make it 14-0. The 6-foot-7 Rafferty, a Division I-prospect in basketball who skipped football as a junior, returned to engineer the ... FULL STORY

NEWS > Quick strikes help Hinsdale Central past Bolingbrook

By JASON ROSSI - jrossi@shawmedia.com

BOLINGBROOK – Matt Rafferty might end up getting most of the recognition following Hinsdale Central's season-opening football win against Bolingbrook, but he want's to share the praise.

Rafferty passed for 168 and two touchdowns in his first action at quarterback in years, but in his mind it was the Red Devils' defense that sparked the 23-15 win over highly-regarded Bolingbrook.

"Our defense came up huge," Rafferty said. "They held them a couple times and we got to come out and just run the ball to close it out."

The Raiders (0-1) came into the game regarded as one of the top teams in the state, but they were ... FULL STORY

NEWS > Hinsdale Central stuns No. 1 Bolingbrook

By Steve Reaven,, Special to the Tribune
AUG 29, 2014

If preseason rankings meant anything, Hinsdale Central's trip to top-ranked Bolingbrook would have resulted in a convincing victory for the host Raiders.

The upstart Red Devils had other ideas, however, as they pulled the first major upset of the season, turning back Bolingbrook 23-15 in a contest delayed by lightning for over a half-hour late in the first quarter.

Hinsdale Central (1-0) saw its 14-0 first quarter lead turn to a 15-14 deficit by halftime but the Red Devils showed mettle by reclaiming the lead for good late in the third on a 44-yard Matt Rafferty-to-Ryan Doney touchdown connection.

"Our offseason work really showed tonight," Central ... FULL STORY
