Palatine quarterback Grant Dersnah tossed the go-ahead touchdown and Kam Lewis' interception sealed Palatine's upset of Maine South, the top-ranked team in Class 8A.

Palatine hosted Maine South for a highly-anticipated nonconference matchup Friday night.

Week 4 brings the first round of CCL/ESCC Blue Division games between Loyola and Brother Rice along with Mount Carmel and Marist.

Maine South has been the class of the Central Suburban League, while Deerfield has emerged as a postseason contender in the CSL's North Division.

Years from now you will hard pressed to convince the Naperville Central football players and their fans that Friday night’s thrilling 31-30 victory over Maine South was not a state title game.
