THE SKINNY: Hinsdale Central (1-1) was able to bounce back after a tough Week 1 loss to Bolingbrook by running the ball effectively all night long. The Red Devils had 229 yards on 36 rushes.
TURNING POINT: Hinsdale Central's Ryan Doney returned a punt 70 yards for his first varsity touchdown with 9:44 to play in the second to give the Red Devils a 22-7 lead.
THE STAR: Ben Stefani had a stellar night rushing the ball, picking up 113 yards on 14 carries. Stefani sealed the win with a 19-yard touchdown with 5:29 remaining to put Hinsdale Central up 36-14.
BY THE NUMBERS: The Red Devils' defense kept Addison Trail quarterback Mile Rybarczyk under constant pressure all night, sacking him four times while routinely chasing him from the pocket. Jaavion Bradley had four catches for 118 yards, two touchdowns and an interception for Addison Trail (1-1).
QUOTABLE: "We knew they just slowly coast down. They don't work much on their special teams, so we knew it was a weak spot in their game. I had a big block by Kyle Stiff. If I didn't have that block I wouldn't have gotten in." — Doney, on his punt return for a touchdown.
