The Hinsdale Central Red Devils fell to Oak Park and River Forest Friday night. According to High School Cube News:

Oak Park-River Forest 28, Hinsdale Central 10

THE SKINNY

Oak Park-River Forest (7-1, 5-1 West Suburban Silver) matched last year's win total to become the school's first team to win seven or more games in back-to-back seasons since the late 1980s. The loss forced Hinsdale Central (4-4, 2-3) into a must-win game for a playoff berth at home against Downers Grove North in the final game of the regular season. The Devils played without Michigan-bound Ian Bunting, who was out with a right shoulder injury.

TURNING POINT

Senior wide receiver Jeremy Moore broke free down the sideline and hauled in an over-the-shoulder pass from junior quarterback Lloyd Yates for a 73-yard touchdown catch with 53.5 seconds to go in the second quarter. The Huskies led 21-3 at the half.

THE STAR

Yates (9-of-15, 283 yards) set a career mark for passing yards in a game. He threw for three touchdowns of 66, 47 and 73 yards and rushed for another TD of two yards in the fourth quarter. Two of Yates' TD passes went to Purdue-bound senior Simmie Cobbs Jr.
