The Times No. 3 Homewood-Flossmoor Vikings employed a balanced attack, throwing for 229 yards and rushing for 226, as they defeated SouthWest Suburban Blue Conference foe Joliet West 48-14 on Friday night.

The twin tandem of Devonte and Deante Harley-Hampton each scored a pair of rushing touchdowns for Homewood-Flossmoor (3-0, 1-0). Deante also had a TD reception from Vikings QB Isaac Cutrara.

Joe Hoy led all rushers with 125 yards, and Darius Crump rushed for 83 yards on eight carries and scored two touchdowns for the Corsairs (1-2), who have beaten the Spartans in 12 of their last 13 meetings.
