BOLINGBROOK – Bolingbrook's perfect football season abruptly ended on Friday.
Undefeated through nine regular season games and one playoff contest, the top-seeded Raiders were upset by Marist on Friday, losing 21-7. It was the only time all season that Bolingbrook was held to under 10 points.
Marist opened the scoring on its first offensive series of the game, capping a 79-yard drive with a Jack Donegan touchdown run.
The Bolingbrook offense answered late in the second quarter. With less than a minute left in the half, quarterback Dariel Greer hit Neo Armstrong for a 16 yard strike down to the Marist four yard line. Fighting for extra yards, Armstrong was stripped and fumbled into the endzone, but Parrker Westphal jumped on the loose ball for Raiders touchdown.
The game remain tied at seven until the fourth quarter, when Marist scored twice in less than a minute. The second touchdown came as a result of a Jaden Huff fumble, which was returned 32 yards for a touchdown.
Trailing by two scores, Bolingbrook could not advance the ball into Marist territory and lost 21-7.
