"Hinsdale Central 20, Downers Grove North 14
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.
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.
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."
