The Hinsdale Central varsity football team (8-2) traveled to Gurnee, Ill. to take on the Warren High School Blue Devils (9-1) on Saturday, Nov. 3. The game was the second round of the IHSA 8A Playoffs, and the Red Devils lost 14-17.

Warren’s featured back, Martin Walker Jr., carried their team with over 1200 yards rushing 15 touchdowns and over 120 yards per game rushing yards going into the game.

As the teams lined up for the kickoff, temperatures were chilly, windy 40 degrees with a 10 mph wind coming from the north. It would be a hard fought battle between the Red Devils and the Blue Devils.

After a flagged out-of-bounds kick by Warren, Andrew Novatany, junior running back, took a pitch on the opening play from scrimmage and flew down the sideline for a 27 yard gain. Central’s opening drive would later stall on the Warren 37.
