End of the Cinderella story

Glenbard North football lost at state 46-19 to conference rival Naperville North. They seemed overmatched and didn’t score until the fourth quarter.

That’s not to take anything anyway from their Herculean effort. They remain the lowest seed in the playoffs ever to rise the finals, as well as the first four-loss team to do so.

Congratulations Panthers on a fabulous season.

Also in prep football news, my sister’s former high school in the suburbs of Pittsburgh also featured in the playoffs. Gateway lost in the state final to Central Catholic 35-34 in OT on a missed extra point. So close…
