Devonta Wilson and his Bremen teammates weren’t ready for the season to end.
Wilson ran for 153 yards, including 132 in the first half, and four first-half touchdowns Friday as the Braves became playoff-eligible with a 42-17 win over host Oak Lawn in a South Suburban crossover.
“I just followed my blocks and picked up speed as I went,” Wilson said. “We’re so excited to be back in the playoffs for the second year in a row. It’s an honor.”
Bremen improved to 5-4 and figures to have enough playoff points to make the postseason. Oak Lawn finished 2-7.
Wilson scored on TD runs of 51 and 21 yards in the first quarter and added scores from 15 and 2 yards out in the second quarter, those following a 73-yard dash to pay dirt from quarterback Tyler Banovich.
Bremen led 27-8 at the half – the Spartans’ lone touchdown coming on a 12-yard run by Ahmad Shatat (14 carries, 101 yards).
The Braves added a score on a 48-yard pass from Banovich (17-of-24, 226 yards) to Darious Tolbert-Jones, who had four catches for 74 yards and an interception.
Oak Lawn scored nine points in the final 3:42 via a safety on a bad snap and a 10-yard TD pass from Bob Olsen (14-of-26, 135 yards) to Sean Altenburg (7 catches, 56 yards).
