Illinois High School Football: Class 6A Title Analysis
The Class 6A title game features a team I am very familiar with in the Cary-Grove Trojans in facing the Crete-Monee Warriors. I covered Cary-Grove for two years and saw them three times this year in the playoffs and have seen a ton of their triple option. The first half saw the first time I’ve seen a team slow down Cary’s offense as LaQuon Treadwell scored on a 69-yard touchdown run to put Cary behind and the Warriors had a 14-3 lead until the final moments of the first half as Kyle Norberg scored from a yard out to pull Cary within 14-10 at the half. Treadwell is an amazing player for sure and will be playing somewhere on Saturdays next season but he is a man among boys out there.
The Warriors got momentum in the third quarter and took a 33-16 lead before hanging on for a 33-26 victory over Cary-Grove. Treadwell had nearly 200 yards of total offense while Cary-Grove was forced to throw but got a huge touchdown catch by Ryan Mahoney early in the second half to help in the cause. The Trojans had a chance with one last possession in the last two minutes but a fourth-down pass was incomplete. It is the first state title for Crete-Monee but a great effort no matter what in this one.
This is no doubt that this has been the best game all weekend so far. I really didn’t think Cary-Grove would have any chance to get back into the game but had a chance late but this was Treadwell and Crete-Monee’s day.
