Christian knocks off Guerin in homecoming game
Chicago Christian had Guerin Prep’s number in more ways than one Friday night.
The Knights had it in the typical sense, as they were able to best the Gators in Palos Heights. But a likely reason for Christian’s success was that Guerin didn’t have bigger numbers personnel-wise.
The Knights weren’t superior in that category, either, but the simple fact they were dealing with someone their own size for a change made a difference. Christian only held a slight edge in total yardage, but its defense forced two turnovers while its offense wasn’t guilty of any.
And for one of the few times this season, the Knights enjoyed playing with a lead. Christian held Guerin scoreless through the first three quarters, and the 13-0 advantage the hosts constructed over that span pretty much held up as the Knights pocketed a 28-14 Suburban Christian Conference Gold win in their homecoming contest.
