Benet football pitches shutout, tops Downers Grove South in opener
DOWNERS GROVE – Porter Ontko rushed for 162 yards and three touchdowns, and Benet's defense limited Downers Grove South to just six yards on the ground as the Redwings topped the Mustangs 21-0 Saturday in the season opener.
The game was originally scheduled for Friday night, but weather postponed it to Saturday. Mother Nature still played a role Saturday, with lightning delaying kickoff and halting the game early in the second quarter.
Ontko scored on a 19-yard burst up the middle late in the first quarter for a 6-0 Benet lead and hit paydirt again with 5:21 left in the second on a 3-yard sweep. A two-point conversion put the Redwings ahead 14-0 at halftime.
