Two undefeated teams met for the Class 6A IHSA state championship game in Champaign. In the end, the Crete-Monee Warriors edged out the Cary-Grove Trojans 33-26.
Months of hard work, preparation, hopes and thrills ended today when Cary-Grove narrowly was defeated by Crete-Monee at the Illinois High School Association's state football championship game in Champaign, Ill. The Trojans' bid for a second state title in the past four years fell one touchdown short as the Crete-Monee Warriors beat Cary-Grove 33-26 at the University of Illinois stadium. Both squads entered the state finals with solid 13-0 season records. And while it may take the coaches, players and Trojan Superfans some time to bounce back from the disappointment of the loss, the 2012 CG team will always be revered with respect and admiration. Only a handful of athletes have the privilege of saying - for their rest of their lives - "…

One hour before the 4 p.m. scheduled kickoff, the bleachers at Varsity Field at Lake Forest High School were filled with football fans, ravenous for the start of the 6A semifinal playoff game between the Lake Forest Scouts and Cary-Grove Trojans. The Scouts scored on their first offensive possession, a 32-yard touchdown from senior quarterback Andrew Clifford to junior Geno Quaid. The home crowd was energized, screaming for Lake Forest to pour it on against favored Cary-Grove. But the Trojans were undefeated and a top seed in 6A for a reason. They are a good football team - a very good football team - outscoring the Scouts 42-14 the rest of the game and ending Lake Forest's charmed postseason run, the final 42-21. "We knew we had to …

Your opponent, Cary-Grove, is undefeated (12-0) this season. Why are they so good? They are very good and balanced at every positon. There are not too many weaknesses that we can exploit. We have to understand what we are doing on each scheme and execute. Hopefully we can block and tackle. This is the first option team you have faced all season. How do you stop that type of offense? It creates assignment football for your guys. Not that they don't have assignments (in other games), but they are more defined and they have who they got. They can’t worry about who their guy is versus following the ball. It starts with their fullback (senior Eric Norberg, who has rushed for 1,933 yards and 23 touchdowns this season) and their quarterback (…

The Cary-Grove Trojans will be advancing in the Illinois High School Association's varsity football playoffs. In a very close game on Saturday afternoon in Cary, the Trojans beat cross-district rival, the Crystal Lake Central Tigers, 7-0. Fans from both schools packed the spectator stands, and many onlookers watched from outside the field. The Trojans and Tigers were neck and neck most of the game. A couple turnovers in the fourth quarter presented the Tigers with an opportunity to tie it up, but they were unable to advance the ball. The Trojans will play next weekend in Lake Forest for a semifinal game. Congratulations to the Trojans, and congratulations to the Tigers on a great season!

Williams recorded seven sacks Friday to spark the Lake Forest High School defense as the Scouts knocked off Notre Dame 31-19 Friday in the Class 6A quarterfinals in Niles. “It was all my defensive linemen and defensive backs that gave me time to get to the quaterback,” said Williams, who also wears the number seven. “I was just playing hard. That is what the coaches teach us to do and that’s what I did.” Lake Forest coach Chuck Spagnoli was excited for his team, which became the first in four attempts to make it to the semifinals. “Good for them,” Spagnoli said. “We are proud of them.
