Hinsdale Central 17, Leyden 3
Senior running back Jack Adams had another big game for the Devils (2-0), rushing for career-best 188 yards on 26 carries. He scored a touchdown late in the game on a 43-yard run for his third score of the season.
Leyden (1-1) drove to the Hinsdale Central 4-yard line with 7:18 remaining in the game trailing 10-0. Eagles coach Tom Cerasani chose to kick a field goal, gambling that his team could reach Devils territory for a potential touchdown. With less than two minutes, Leyden drove to the Devils’ 13, but turned the ball over on downs.
“They are a much better team than they have been in previous years.” — Hinsdale Central coach Rich Tarka on the Eagles
Leyden ended a streak of seven consecutive shutout quarters for No. 13 Hinsdale Central with Mark Wach’s 21-yard field goal. The Eagles host defending West Suburban Gold champion Addison Trail in Week 3. Devils quarterback Brian Owens (6-for-14, two interceptions, 65 yards, touchdown) will try to recover against Proviso West next week.
