CRETE | If the Crete-Monee offense was looking for a little more balance, the Warriors seem to have found it.

The Times No. 3 Warriors routed Rich South 45-6 in Southland Athletic Conference action at Crete-Monee's senior night. Trevon Smith rushed for 114 yards and two touchdowns on nine carries. And the Warrior offense showed that balance, rushing for 208 yards, and passing for 201.

"It's more balanced than at the beginning of the season," Smith said. "It's better now. We've been working harder in practice trying to execute, and we brought some more plays in. The receivers are thinking more."

Warrior Jonathan Draper rushed for two touchdowns, both from five yards out. With Crete-Monee (7-1, 4-0) leading 22-6 in the second quarter, Smith found the endzone on a 49-yard dash with 5:30 left to carry the Warriors to a 30-6 halftime lead.

"It's working well for us heading towards the playoffs," Smith said. "We just need to stay focused and continue to work hard. Study film, work hard, and don't give up."

Crete-Monee's defense continued to dominate, as it has much of the year. The Warriors' D allowed only 68 yards of total offense, much of which came late in the fourth quarter with the game put away. Senior linebacker Nyles Morgan said the defense is not getting too far ahead of themselves and are only worried about next week's game at Rich Central.

"Everything is working. Everyone on defense is playing as a unit and playing as one," Morgan said. "We just need to work on Rich Central right now, and then worry about the playoffs."

The Warriors struggled with turnovers in the first half, losing two fumbles, one of which was returned 44 yards for the lone Rich South score of the game. But the offense was able to gain their composure when they needed. Warrior quarterback Frank Douglas finished the night 12 of 25 for 201 yards and one touchdown.

"I thought we played great in all three phases of the game," Warrior coach John Konecki said. "I'm really proud of the kids on senior night. You know, this group of seniors in their high school career, they're now 35-1, and they played the way we asked them to on their senior night at their last guaranteed home game."
