Eagles’ QB injured in lopsided loss to Vikings
The letters “H” and “F” in local high school circles are an abbreviation for Homewood-Flossmoor.
Friday night, they also stood for something else: hurt and frustrated.
Those words didn’t describe the Vikings, but their SouthWest Suburban Conference Blue foe from Orland Park. Sandburg entered the divisional contest with four victories in five tries, but still in search of one that might rightfully be thought of as a signature win.
The Eagles must keep looking. H-F saw to that by seizing command of the game at Seliga Field in less than six minutes.
The Vikings erupted for three touchdowns over that span, one of them coming on a 50-yard gallop by sophomore Deante Harley-Hampton. His twin brother, Devonte, accounted for the other two scores, which were bridged by a Sandburg fumble.
