The 2019 Illinois High School Association football season kicked off Friday night with all our local schools in action. Carl Sandburg (1-0) perhaps made the biggest statement with a 10-7 upset of one of the Chicago Public League's best teams, Morgan Park.
Brother Rice won a battle of Top 10 powerhouses with a 26-20 over Hillcrest. Brother Rice was the 8A Runner-Up last season while Hillcrest was thought by many to be a state title contender this year.
Andrew High School started the 2019 campaign in fine fashion with a 39-3 win over Kewaskum High School in Wisconsin. Marist, an 8A semi-finalist a year ago, picked up where they left off last November with 42-0 win over Dunbar. Other area scores:
Providence over Willowbrook 14-7
Richards over Lincoln Way Central 14-7
Stagg over Little Village 35-16
