Fenton, James Run over Elmwood Park


Byline: Daily Herald Reports

Fenton made its intentions clear from the beginning.

Bison senior Eric James, who rushed for 144 yards, had 6 carries on the opening drive for 37 yards. The 5-foot-7 running back scored from 6 yards out to cap off Fenton's steady 10-play, 55-yard march.

Twenty-seven of the Bison's 30 plays in the first half were rushing plays.

"We want to run the ball, we want to keep our defense off the field and run the clock," said Fenton coach Mark Carmen, whose team won its third game in the last four weeks. "When we do throw the ball, we want to be really efficient."

Fenton quarterback Matt Post completed all 6 of his pass attempts for 88 yards, including a 14-yard touchdown pass to junior Brian Marquardt, who had 4 receptions for 56 yards, in the third quarter.

The Bison (3-2) grinded out 144 of their 261 rushing yards in the first half and rolled to a 48-20 victory over Elmwood Park (0- 5) on Friday in a Suburban Prairie East opener in Bensenville.

"You've got to get the first score out there to get the game rolling," said James, who added a 37-yard rushing touchdown in the fourth quarter. "The lineman were blocking and everyone was doing their job."

Junior Mike Tully's first touchdown, an 11-yard score, gave the Bison a 14-6 lead with 9:16 remaining in the first half. His 82- yard kickoff return for a touchdown in the third quarter put Fenton up 34-12.

"The blocking was just great," Tully said. "Great blocks by Nick Pingel and Louis Avila opened up a huge hole for me and I was able to break to the right, I saw a big hole and took off."

The Tigers had a pair of 100-yard rushers Friday night. Junior Phillip Mirabile scored the Tiger's first touchdown, a 1-yard run with 7.8 seconds left in the first quarter, and finished with 104 yards rushing on 29 carries.

Despite completing just two passes, Tigers' quarterback Joey Zagorski, who rushed for 130 yards, ran for a pair of 44-yard touchdowns in the second half.

"That was a big plus - they both played their butts off," said Elmwood Park coach Shahe Bagdasarian.

Hinsdale South 37, Willowbrook 5: It's a good thing for Willowbrook that Friday's halftime was extended to 20 minutes - the home team probably needed the extra break to figure out what hit them.
