Homewood-Flossmoor might have an inexperienced squad, but its players are very talented. Deante Harley-Hampton had 13 carries for 58 yards and two total touchdowns to key the upset for the Vikings (2-0).
THE TURNING POINT
Patriots wide receiver Matt Morrissey caught a 73-yard touchdown pass from quarterback Willie Bourbon to tie the score at 21 with eight minutes remaining. On the ensuing kickoff, Harley-Hampton raced 95 yards for a score.
After a quiet first half, Harley-Hampton gained 42 yards on seven carries during a second-half drive that lasted more than nine minutes. He capped the march with a 7-yard touchdown pass from quarterback Isaac Cutera.
BY THE NUMBERS
Stevenson (0-2) committed three turnovers and has turned the ball over 11 times this season.
“We have a lot of weapons on offense. A lot of people thought (we’d be young). but good things are to come.” — Cutera
