Playoff picture
Unity-Payson lost a road game to North Greene 39-0 that eliminated the Mustangs from the playoff picture. It was a good run for the U-P, which had won four straight before finishing 4-5 on the season.

Illini West hung on for a 28-27 over Pittsfield to qualify for its 23 consecutive postseason win.

Making their statement
The Quincy High School football team made its case for a home playoff game with a 46-6 win over Peoria Richwoods. The Blue Devils haven’t had a home playoff game since 1986.

They said it

“The start didn’t help us much. All night, we made too many penalties. Our heads weren’t in the game. We didn’t play with much focus.”

— Unity senior Alex Blickhan

“It definitely turns things around. It was pretty good timing. It gave us motivation to keep going.”

— Central’s Michael Houston

“To have that home-field advantage in a playoff game I think would really help. We feel better at home. I feel more comfortable, and I think we have a chance to win a playoff game.”

— QHS senior defensive back Wes Creasy

“That was good for us. It was a good challenge. It’s something that gets us going in the right direction. Our schedule hadn’t been that challenging so far. We needed something to get us moving in the right direction for the playoffs.”

— QND senior linebacker Logan Schutte
