QB leads Chargers to huge win over Joliet West
Call Stagg’s weapon of choice Friday night the Adam bomb.
The description fit Chargers quarterback Adam Pilota in more than one way. Not only did the senior blow up any chance visiting Joliet West had of claiming a SouthWest Suburban Conference Blue victory, but he accomplished that by being the architect of several big plays, including three long touchdown passes — more commonly known as “bombs” in gridiron vernacular.
The most impressive aerial hookup was one between Pilota and Jack Duffner, which covered 80 yards and came soon after the Tigers had wasted a prime scoring opportunity of their own by fumbling the football into the Stagg end zone. The Chargers’ ensuing recovery resulted in a touchback that preserved a 13-7 lead, which was then increased by the Pilota-Duffner duo.
