So much offense. So much defense.

But never - never - fall asleep on special teams.

Hinsdale Central's Aidan Cruickshank blocked a late fourth-quarter punt and Andrew Novatney scooped it and scored to rally the visiting Red Devils to Friday's 35-34 football victory over Naperville Central in a stunning nonconference opener.

Naperville Central took a 28-7 lead in the opening minute of the third quarter and reclaimed a 34-28 lead in the opening minute of the fourth. A missed extra point, however, proved to be costly.

Zach Drescher's extra point off the punt block gave Hinsdale Central a 35-34 lead with 4 minutes, 41 seconds left. After trading punts Naperville Central worked the ball to the Red Devils' 11-yard line in the final two minutes, but a fumbled handoff was recovered by Hinsdale Central's Zach Brewer to pretty much end it.
