Rich Central 24, Rich East 21

When Rich Central junior quarterback Devonte Black fumbled and lost the ball with four minutes to play, leading to a go-ahead touchdown by rival Rich East, he was in tears on the sidelines.

Senior running back Darelle Black made sure his kid brother didn't get too far down in the dumps.

"I told him to keep his head up and that he was a leader on this team," Darelle said. "I knew we were going to get another chance to win our Homecoming--game."

He was right.

With his team trailing 21-18 with 2:12 to play, Devonte directed the Olympians 65 yards in nine plays, culminating with a 30-yard touchdown pass to Lawrence Nettles with 40 seconds left to claim a stunning 24-21--Southland Athletic Conference win Friday night in Olympia Fields.

Rich Central (3-2, 2-0) had lost its--last six meetings against Rich East (2-3, 0-2).

"Our coaches have a lot of confidence in our two-minute drill," said Devonte, who lit up the sky with 21-of-36 passing for 328 yards and three touchdowns.

"On the touchdown pass, we found an opening in the middle of their defense. Lawrence did a great job getting to the end zone after making the catch.

"I was really upset after making that fumble, but my brother really calmed me down.
