Mike McNulty's four touchdowns helped host York to a 33-28 victory over No. 23 Hinsdale Central in a West Suburban Silver contest Friday in Elmhurst.

The win puts York in a three-way tie with Hinsdale Central and Lyons. York needs to beat Oak Park next week to get at least a share of the conference title. The Dukes are two-time defending WSS champions.

"Before we came out here, coach [Bill Lech] put articles up on how Hinsdale wanted to beat us," said McNulty, who finished with 139 yards on 26 carries. "It was very important to prove ourselves."

It was the second week York has been at full strength after five players were suspended for violating team rules.

McNulty's 53-yard touchdown catch from Tom Judge with 4:24 to go in the game put the Dukes ahead 33-28.

Hinsdale Central (5-2, 3-1) took its first lead of the game at 28-27 with 8:19 to go in the fourth, when John Whitelaw threw a 14-yard touchdown pass to Connor Marrero.

York (5-2, 4-1) led 21-0 until Whitelaw threw a 19-yard pass to Troy Laing in the second.
