NEWS > Miscues cost Red Devils in playoff loss

Nov. 14, 2014
By JASON ROSSI - jrossi@shawmedia.com

CHICAGO - Football coaches at all levels stress to their teams the importance of taking care of the ball.

Holding on to the ball was one thing Hinsdale Central struggled with Saturday, and it contributed to the Red Devils’ 55-17 loss against Simeon in the second round of the Class 8A playoffs at Gately Stadium.

“We turned the ball over a few times, which we really hadn’t done all year, and it led to points for them, and that was the difference,” Central head coach Dan Hartman said.

Matt Rafferty connected with Thomas Ives for a 13-yard touchdown to pull the Red Devils (8-3) within 14-7 with ... FULL STORY

NEWS > 8A football: Simeon routs Hinsdale Central to move on to quarterfinals

By Bob Narang, Special to the Tribune
11/8/14

Simeon's first possession in Saturday's game against Hinsdale Central provided little hint of an explosion of points.

After a three-and-out on their first drive, the Wolverines racked up 398 total yards and scored a pair of touchdowns on fumble recovery returns en route to a 55-17 victory against Hinsdale Central in a Class 8A second-round game at Gately Stadium.

The Wolverines (10-1) will face Naperville Central in a quarterfinal next weekend.

"We went over to the sidelines after the first drive and went over our assignments and just executed," said Simeon's Dion Earls Jr., who ran for 122 yards and scored on touchdown runs of 30 and 45 ... FULL STORY

NEWS > Simeon beats Hinsdale Central at its own game in 8A second-round victory

CHICAGO - After watching previous Hinsdale Central games, Simeon coach Dante Culbreath devised a plan on how to attack the Red Devils’ defense.

“We wanted to use our speed,” Culbreath said.

His strategy worked Saturday night in the second round of the Class 8A playoffs. Senior running back Dion Earls scored touchdowns on runs of 30 and 45 yards to finish with 121 yards on eight carries. Senior Matt Fleming added a dazzling 65-yard TD run off a botched punt snap as second-seeded Simeon routed third-seeded Hinsdale Central 55-17 at Gately Stadium in Chicago.

While making preparations to play the Devils, Culbreath said he noticed how boldly ... FULL STORY

No. 3 Hinsdale Central (8-2) at No. 2 Simeon (9-1)

Class 8A

Game time: 6 p.m. Saturday.

Outlook: Coming off their first playoff win since a 2008 run to the Class 8A final, the Red Devils face their first Chicago Public League playoff opponent in 20 years. Hinsdale Central quarterback Matt Rafferty has the perfect target in Thomas Ives, who snared two long touchdown passes last week, but Rafferty also spread the ball to three different receivers for touchdowns. Running back Juwan Edmond showed he has no problem using that noted wrestling strength to ... FULL STORY
