Illinois High School Football: Week 8 Big Northern Conference game capsules
The 2012 regular season has just two weeks remaining in it and some storylines are still alive. Can North Boone run the table and finish undefeated? Will Richmond-Burton end North Boone’s run and make their own run at the East Division title? Will the Week 9 matchup between North Boone and Burlington Central be for the divisional title? Some of the questions will be answered this week in several critical games. Here is the Week 8 schedule with each team’s overall and divisional record in parentheses….
Richmond-Burton (5-2, 3-1) at North Boone (7-0, 4-0): The Rockets won their fourth straight game with a 28-0 shutout of Burlington Central. Adam Kinsella rushed for 130 yards in the win for Richmond.

Genoa-Kingston (2-5, 2-2) at Harvard (3-4, 2-2): The Cogs had over 270 yards of offense but it wasn’t enough in a 21-14 loss to North Boone to end any postseason hopes. Harvard got 29 first-quarter points in a 43-21 win over Rockford Christian to remain alive for the postseason.

Burlington Central (5-2) at Rock Falls (1-6): Central couldn’t get the offense going in any way during a 28-0 loss to Richmond-Burton to have their hopes of a conference title diminished. Rock Falls lost to Mendota 14-13 in BNC West action.
