The Dukes started out looking like they might dominate Lyons Township at Clarence East Field in Elmhurst Friday, after an amazing play led to a York touchdown just 19 seconds into the game.
On the very first play, York quarterback Charlie Rose, after some double flea-flicker razzle dazzle, pitched the ball long to wide receiver Jeff Ostling, who ran the ball in for a touchdown. (See attached clip.)
But the Dukes had a hard time getting much going after that, and the Lions ended up with a 42-23 win. It was a must-win situation for both teams, and York no longer has a chance at a playoff berth.
LT is now 4-4, 3-2 in WSC Silver. York, headed into next week's conference game against powerhouse Glenbard West in Glen Ellyn, fell to 3-5, 1-4.
