Thanks to the defense's bend-don't-break game play, Andrew High School held on for a Homecoming win Friday, beating Lincoln-Way Central, 14-7.
Each time the Knights threatened to make an offensive run, the Thunderbolts came up with a clutch stop or big play. One of the biggest came in the third quarter when Xavier Medina recovered a L-W Central fumble. That eventually led to T-bolts quarterback Jacob Platt passing to Daniel Ball who bulldozed his way to the end zone for what would be the winning touchdown.
And in a game where the T-bolts' defense was key, it's appropriate that it was that squad that had the final say, knocking down a fourth-down pass attempt that marked L-W Central's last play of the game.
