JOLIET — Third-ranked Joliet made quick work of Forsyth in the 8-Man ranks Friday night, taking a huge lead in the first half and rolling to a 52-0 victory.
Joliet’s Tucker Lind got things started in the first quarter, scoring a touchdown on a tough short-yardage run for a 6-0 lead. On the J-Hawks’ next possession, Tyson Cook hit Seth Bailey for a long touchdown over the top and the score became 14-0.
Joliet’s defense held strong later. Forsyth had a first and goal-to-go situation but the J-Hawks held firm. Later, the Paxton McQuillan intercepted a pass from Connor Kramer-Stahl and took it all the way back to the end zone to push the lead to 22-0.
Kramer-Stahl was then forced to fall on the ball in the end zone following a bad snap, and the J-Hawks’ defense recorded a safety.
Cook later hit McQuillan with a short completion and McQuillan did the rest, running to the end zone for a 35-yard score and a 32-0 lead with 4:59 remaining before halftime. Townes Catron added another score in the first half with a 15-yard run and the J-Hawks never looked back.
Joliet improved to 4-0 overall. Forsyth is now 2-2.
