McHenry (0-3) committed four turnovers and was flagged nine times for 106 yards.
“I think that this was a great defensive game for us, but we just need to capitalize more on offense,” Monzon said. “We made too many mistakes, but they made mistakes and we didn’t capitalize on theirs. But we’re still taking it one game at a time, and everyone is playing their heart out.”
Yorkville (3-0) answered Monzon’s pick-6 with one of their own as Jake Polowy intercepted Christopher Zieba’s pass and scored with 1:31 remaining in the first half to tie the game at 7 and swing momentum into the host’s favor.
“It was a big play,” Polowy said. “We needed something because it was a struggle in the first half.”
Zieba (pictured above) had a difficult time getting comfortable as the Foxes constantly pressured him, sacking him six times.
“We knew they were going to be a bigger challenge than our first two games,” Yorkville junior Nick Stemmet said. "We just made our presence felt and eventually those sacks came after their line broke, and we got into their backfield.”
