At the Wood Shed in rural Streator, host Flanagan-Cornell/Woodland scored its first victory of the season, defeating River Ridge 20-16 in an Illinois 8-Man Football Association contest.
River Ridge struck first with 1 72-yard fumble return for a score, but the Falcons (1-2) answered with a trio of touchdowns — an 11-yard Masen Persico run, Jesse Simpson’s 42-yard sprint to the end zone and a Persico-to-Peyton Quaintance 18-yard touchdown pass.
