LEMONT – A stellar and memorable season continues for the Lemont Hornets 83-pound Gold team.

After navigating the regular season with an undefeated record, the Hornets punched their ticket to the Bill George Youth Football League Super Bowl with a 20-0 win over the Wheaton Rams on Saturday.

The Hornets will face the Lyons Township Tigers for the BGYFL title at 11:30 a.m. Sunday at Benedictine University.

The win over the Rams was the Hornets’ 10th straight victory, and they have allowed just three scores in those 10 games. The stingy Hornets’ defense held the Rams to only 26 yards on 26 plays.

With a stalwart defense providing a spark, the Hornets have scored 277 points this season. On Saturday, the offense scored three touchdowns and successfully converted two extra point plays, and the special teams played very well.
