CALUMET TWP. | The playmakers are abundant on Andrean's sideline. Big plays have come in bunches all season, and it doesn't matter who touches the ball.

Matt DeSomer, Trevor Berg, Cameron Bosak, Owen Satoski – all are threats to score every time – and they proved it in Friday's 52-12 Class 3A Sectional 25 semifinal win over undermanned Calumet.

DeSomer ran for two touchdowns and passed for a 54-yard touchdown to Satoski, but was benched in favor of Jake Paliga as soon as the 59ers built a big lead.

“I wish I could go the whole game, but obviously I can't because you can't risk anyone getting hurt,” said DeSomer, who passed for 146 yards.

With Andrean (11-0) playing on a short field most of the night, touchdowns came in bunches early. Berg and Bosak scored on short runs in the first quarter to help build a 28-0 lead, while Berg's second touchdown in the second quarter put Andrean up 42-0 at halftime before giving way to mostly reserve players.

For Calumet, a squad already short on bodies took a hit in the third quarter when senior running back Noah Fowler suffered a clean dislocation of his left ankle. Fowler broke off a 45-yard run for Calumet's longest play of the first half.

“It was a serious injury,” Calumet coach Ivan Zimmer said. “He'll be fine. He's a young guy.”

Calumet (3-9) finally got on the board in the fourth quarter, first on an 81-yard TD from Kobe Fowler followed by a 19-yard score from Quentin Harris.

Having several offensive threats will undoubtedly help the 59ers as the postseason rolls along. The 59ers will travel to John Glenn – who DeSomer compared to Kankakee Valley with the use of the power I-formation – for the Class 3A Sectional 25 championship next Friday. The Falcons blanked Hammond 43-0 in the other semifinal.

“It's not going to be relying on one person this year,” DeSomer said. “Hopefully, we can just spread the ball around. I've had my fair share of touches and other people have been stepping up this year.”
