Kwiatkowski's Running Sparks Rolling Meadows; Conant Sweeps


Art Kwiatkowski scored 4 touchdowns to lead Rolling Meadows' freshman football team to its first win of the season, a 40-6 decision over Wheeling.

Kwiatkowski (120 yards) jolted Wheeling with a 65-yard return of the opening kickoff for a touchdown.

He ran for another one from 5 yards out in the first half and added two more in the second half.

Quarterback Jim Riccio had a good rushing game with 70 yards, and he completed 2 of 6 passes for 33 yards.

Dennis Meacham at guard, Dave Grinslade at tackle, Dan Crimmins at center and Bill Hoban at end gave the offense plenty of protection with their blocking.

Defensive ends Erik Bilbrey and Bob Hoban helped thwart Wheeling's passing game and forced the Wildcats to try to go up the middle.

Linebackers Frank Zurek and Meacham along with Crimmins at tackle played steady defense.

Sophomores. The Mustang sophomores opened a 12-0 lead on touchdowns by Adam Tarkowski on a fumble recovery in the end zone and a 22-yard screen pass from Scott Ubert (6-for-10 passing, 117 yards) to Russ Haver, but they couldn't maintain it in a 25-24 loss to Wheeling.

Haver scored twice more on a 28-yard screen pass from Ubert and a 75-yard run to give the Mustangs the lead, but Wheeling scored the last touchdown in the final seconds of the game.

Noseguard Harish Patel had a fumble recovery and an interception, and Tarkowski had a fumble recovery and 4 sacks at defensive end.

Conant

A lightning bolt 70-yard kickoff return by Jason Martin put Conant over the top to stay in a 21-7 victory over Buffalo Grove.

Martin scored the first Cougar touchdown on a 15-yard run. Quarterback Jason Cartwright (7 for 13 passing, 100 yards) found Jim Kassner open for a 15-yard touchdown pass for the other.

Martin had 11 carries for 80 yards and 3 receptions for 50 yards.

Jack Reilly had 3 rushes for 20 yards; Dominick Fiszer, who scored the 2-point conversion on a pass from Jim Kassner after Martin's long return, had 2 catches for 25 yards.

Guards Adam Francioni and Eric Pilon, tackles Ryan Nardiello, Eddy Akel and Tony Tark and center Dan Avers blocked well.

Cartwright and Jeff Polzin intercepted passes on defense.

Sophomores. Quarterback Kevin Sallmen scored 2 touchdowns on short runs of 1 and 4 yards, and Brian Gangestad (13 carries, 75 yards) added a 12-yard run for the third touchdown in an 18-0 shutout.

Tony Ditore rushed 11 times for 48 yards, Chuck Krol ran 6 times for 33 yards, and Sallmen completed 4 of 11 passes for 29 yards.

The Cougar defense effectively shut down Buffalo Grove's option offense. Joel Santos had a fumble recovery, and David Kruss intercepted a pass.

Brian Baszkowski, Chris Monkhoff, Matt Gennuso, Mike Bartholomay, Keith Jackson, Chris Kaga, Tim Reetz, Santos and Kruss all played solid defense.

Schaumburg

Schaumburg's sophomore football team dug too deep a hole and couldn't climb out in a 39-12 loss to Barrington.

Barrington led 26-0 at half before Ryan Carr recovered a fumble in the end zone for the first Saxon score.

Don Ryan went on a 30-yard jaunt to set up the second TD, a 17-yard run by Eric Oscarson.

Oscarson completed 5 of 15 passes for 105 yards, including 3-for-68 to Kyle Ernst.

John Yu at defensive tackle and Justin Zalaznik at middle linebacker led in tackles.

Freshmen. The Saxon freshmen gave up two touchdowns in each of the first two quarters and one each in the third and fourth in a 36-0 loss to Barrington.

Jason Hawkins led the offense with 12 carries for 56 yards and Justin Johnson had 12 carries for 23 yards.

Matt Kittner showed improvement at quarterback, including connecting on 4 passes for 45 yards.

Don Anderson had an interception at strong safety and 60-yard return, Jeff Mack caused a fumble that was recovered by a host of Saxons, and Anthony Cristo led the tacklers with 5 solos and an assist. …
