FOOTBALL

Hampshire 13, McHenry 10: At McHenry, the Whip-Purs ended a 24-game losing streak last week and finished their season with a two-game winning streak.

Brady Young ran for 126 yards and two touchdowns as the Whips (2-7, 2-7 FVC) held off the Warriors (3-6, 3-6) at McCracken Field. Hampshire beat Dundee-Crown, 12-0, last week.

McHenry scored in the first quarter on Chris Zieba’s 15-yard touchdown pass to Kyle Kaempf.

Gracie Gasmann then booted a 28-yard field goal in the second quarter for a 10-0 Warriors lead.

Young scored on a 2-yard run late in the second quarter. He then had a 4-yard touchdown run in the third quarter.

Neil Sakolari sparked the Whips’ defense with seven tackles, two sacks and three tackles for losses.

Matteo Acosta led McHenry with 17 carries for 113 yards. Tyler Groves and Daniel Hallaert led the Warriors each with seven tackles.

Johnsburg 41, East Alton-Wood River 13: At Bloomington, freshman quarterback Ian Boal threw five touchdown passes as the Skyhawks (4-5) finished their season with a nonconference victory over the Oilers at Illinois Wesleyan University.

Carson Piggott caught three of Boal’s scoring throws, David Claudio and Justin Peake also had TD catches.

Jimmy Broderick’s two field goals accounted for the Skyhawks’ other points.

Johnsburg’s five-year playoff streak will end, but the Skyhawks ended on a good note.

“It was huge. It was real important,” Johnsburg coach Sam Lesniak said. “The seniors played really well. It was a good way to end the season. It was good to see the kids didn’t have any quit in them.”

Judah Christian 38, Alden-Hebron 34: At Champaign, quarterback Thomas Webber ran for four touchdowns and passed for another for the Giants, who came up short against the Tribe (2-6) in an eight-man game.

The Giants (1-7) got the ball back with 48 seconds left and two timeouts but could not score the go-ahead touchdown.

Webber finished with 17 carries for 117 yards and 5-of-12 passing for 71 yards and a touchdown toss to Mike Ellison, who had four catches for 65 yards. Nick Rapa had six carries for 36 yards.
