DARIEN — York was going to continue passing the ball until Hinsdale South (2-0) took it out of the Dukes’ hands.
And that’s just what sophomore defensive back Chuck Hunter did during the Hornets’ 49-21 West Suburban crossover win Friday in Darien.
The 6-foot Hunter grabbed a pair of interceptions, including one off a fake field goal, to end a pair of threats by the visitors. York senior quarterback Andrew Iwaskiewicz completed 21-of-46 passes and was picked off three times before the Hornets could feel comfortable.
“It was tough,” Hunter said of covering deep route after deep route, as York ran the ball only eight times. “I was tired but I fought through it. I was pretty shocked I got the fake field goal.”
York (0-2) had no answer for Hornets senior quarterback D.J. Deolitsis and Hinsdale South’s triple option. Deolitsis completed 6-of-14 passes for 96 yards and carried 18 times for 165 yards, including a 41-yard touchdown that gave the home team a 34-14 lead with 7:16 left in the third quarter.
Junior running back Arian Toney presented another problem for the York defense, chewing up 128 yards and scoring three touchdowns.
Abreon Starks, Devontae Washington and Jake Czajkowski also ran for scores as the Hornets piled up 274 yards on the ground.
“I’m in shock,” said Hinsdale South coach Mike Berry. “It’s been a long time since we beat a (West Suburban) Silver team.”
