The Yorkville Foxes football team shutout the Rebels of Thornton Fractional South at Campbell Field in their IHSA Class 7A playoff game 37-0. Not that the Foxes need much help in this one, they were happy to have the Rebels commit four first half turnovers. Yorkville would make the Rebels hurt them as they would come away with points each time.
Cole Riebe would get the Foxes on the board first with a 22 yard field goal after a bad snap gave the Foxes a first and goal inside the Rebels 10. Again the Rebels would turn it over as the Yorkville Foxes Cam Caldwell would intercept a Rebels pass and immediately Josh Beetham would hit Cale Reeder with a beautiful 41 yard TD pass. Yorkville would lead 23-0 at the half and the route was on.
Tre Thomas and Toran Harris would have a great night on the ground for the Foxes with Thomas ran for 100 yards and Harris amassed 77 yards with each score a rushing TD. Beetham also had a rushing TD and Jake Polowy intercepted a pass and ran it in for a defensive score. A complete game on both sides of the ball for Yorkville in this one.
The Foxes will travel to Willowbrook High School in Villa Park for a 1:00pm game this Saturday. GO FOXES IN ROUND 2!!!
