DOWNERS GROVE | The rain pelted down and the wind prevented a precision passing game.
FLOSSMOOR | Homewood-Flossmoor coach Craig Buzea wasn't about to play the blame game after the Vikings' tough, season-ending loss to Naperville Central.

FLOSSMOOR | Homewood-Flossmoor defensive back Will Daniels recalls the unpleasant experience of watching from the sidelines last year.

CRETE | Their hopes of a repeat Class 6A title were stopped by Providence in the wet grass and mud Saturday afternoon.
CHICAGO | It took Times No. 1 Mt. Carmel two minutes and 39 seconds to put Friday night’s class 7A opening round playoff game against Benet Academy out of reach.
FRANKFORT | When it was over, Tom Padjen stood in a cold drizzle, weary players kneeling before him, and delivered the sort of speech he's delivered 36 times before.
FLOSSMOOR | Little changed Friday night from the first time Homewood-Flossmoor played, and played with, Sandburg this season.
Crete-Monee has not lacked for senior leadership and one reason is safety Jonathan Draper.
