Hinsdale Central High School is headed to the playoffs after winning over Downers North Friday night, High School Cube News reports. According to High School Cube News, 

"Hinsdale Central 20, Downers Grove North 14 

THE SKINNY

The return of senior starting quarterback Chase Hamilton provided a huge spark for the Red Devils (5-4 overall, 3-3 West Suburban Silver), who were in a must-win game to become playoff eligible. Hamilton fractured a bone in his ankle in a Week 3 win over York and had been out ever since with what many thought would be a season-ending injury. Hamilton split time with Jacob White and Thomas Ives on Friday in Hinsdale.

TURNING POINT

Hamilton entered the game on the Red Devils’ second possession of the game and engineered a 10-play drive, capped by a 1-yard touchdown run by White that put Hinsdale Central ahead 7-0 with 23 seconds left in the first quarter. The Red Devils never trailed.

THE STAR

White, a senior linebacker and quarterback, did it all for the Red Devils. He rushed for 77 yards and a touchdown and sealed the win by converting a fourth-and-one at Hinsdale Central’s own 45 with 25 seconds left. He also led the team in tackles on defense."
