The Lightweight Gold and Middleweight squads continued their winning ways in Week 5. The remaining five Glenview Junior Titan squads, however, dropped their contests.
The Lightweight Gold unleashed a powerful attack for a 27-6 win against Winnetka on Oct. 7. Jake Smiley led the way on offense with three touchdown runs and over 200 yards on the ground. Aidan O’Dea and JP Nukk were able to connect on a touchdown pass for the Gold.
Savontae Garner and Ben Hides were named co-defensive players of the contest. Garner racked up two critical plays – a touchdown saving tackles and an interception. Hides landed many tough tackles from his linebacker position.
The Middleweights were able to shut down the Niles West attack and win 27-0. The offensive line played a superlative game, anchored by Nicholas Pagano, Scott Studenroth, Forrest Eriksson, Dimitri Manesiotis and Soren Wiberg. The beneficiaries of those huge holes were backs Chad Tormoen, Jacob Snyder and Declan Hood, who scored touchdowns almost untouched.
Gavin Ryan had a big play with a hard hit causing a fumble on fourth and short to get the ball back.
