Behind a balanced offense and four fumble recoveries, the Blue Streaks cruised past Woodstock North, 34-6, Friday night. Not only was the win Woodstock’s first over the Thunder at Larry Dale Field since 2009, it also clinched the school’s first winning season since that 2009 campaign.
Woodstock North's Cole Brey returned a kickoff for a touchdown in the Thunder's big second quarter against Johnsburg. Marengo sophomore QB Josh Holst had a big night with three TD passes against Harvard.
Harvard and Woodstock North started their game with back-to-back kickoff return TDs and produced the most competitive local game in Week 2. Crystal Lake South looks for a Week 3 game, and Prairie Ridge backup Henrik Nystrom realizes a lineman's dream with a touchdown.
Woodstock piled up 280 total yards of offense, while the defense – save for one drive – thwarted Woodstock North’s quick-hitting attack in a 20-7 Kishwaukee River Conference cross-town battle on a frigid Friday night at North.
