It may have been the worst of time for St. Laurence to face Times No. 1 Mount Carmel.

Coming off a loss against Loyola Academy last week in a rain-plagued game that took two days to finish, the Caravan averaged nearly 15 yards per rushing attempt while dominating St. Laurence on both sides of the ball in a 55-0 Catholic League crossover win Friday night.

Jimmy Mickens had 187 yards on just six carries and scored three touchdowns for Mount Carmel (6-1). Justin Peebles rushed four times for 137 yards and two TDs, while Jaquan Buntyn rushed four times for for 103 yards and a score.

The Caravan only attempted two passes with Christian Searles completing one of them -- a 27-yard TD strike to Nadir Cornish.

St. Laurence (3-4) was held to minus-27 yards on the ground, and was intercepted four times out of nine pass attempts. Overall, St. Laurence had minu-7 yards of total offense and was forced to punt eight times.

Hyde Park 40, Washington 33: The Patriots (4-3, 2-3) were stopped 2 yards short of putting themselves in a position to tie or win the Chicago Public-Windy City Conference game at the end of regulation.

Washington was down 22 points at halftime. Quarterback Aaron Cruz nearly capped a big passing day in dramatic fashion. He hooked up with receiver Malachi Fo'Ney on a 50-yard pass play, but Fo'Ney was tackled 2 yards short of the end zone.

Hyde Park (4-3, 4-1) took advantage of three Patriot turnovers in the first half while taking a 28-6 lead.

Lincoln-Way Central 29, Thornton 21: The Knights (2-3, 3-4) rallied to score the final 15 points of the SouthWest Suburban Red game, as Sean Struder's 2-yard run with 4:05 left in capped the comeback.

Studer ended up with 131 yards on 23 carries.

Thornton quarterback Jo Wahn Brown was 18-of-37 passing for 213 yards and touchdowns to receivers Juan Wesley and Cavion Clanton. Remi Simmons' 22-yard kickoff fumble return was the other score for Wildcats (3-4, 2-3).

Bradley-Bourbonnais 34, Thornridge 13: The Falcons (0-7, 0-5) fell behind 21-0 in the first half and the Braves (5-2, 3-2) never let them back in the SWSR game.

Antonio Johnson connected with receiver Rashaun Morris on a 73-yard pass play to get Thornridge on the board in the third quarter. Deonte Moses later capped the scoring for the Falcons with a 35-yard TD run in the fourth. Moses accounted for much of Thornridge's offense, but three would-be touchdown runs by him were nullified due to clipping penalties.

Andrew 35, Thornwood 14: The Thunderbolts improved to 4-2 and 3-2 in the SWSR, while the Thunderbirds fell to 3-4 and 2-3.
