    By: SHS Public Information Office | Nov 02, 2015

    In the opening round of the IHSA Class 8A state playoffs, the host Patriots (7-3) rallied from a 16-point deficit to defeat the Conant Cougars (6-4) 43 to 35, advancing to a meeting with top-seeded Loyola at noon Saturday. After falling behind 35-19 with 6:10 remaining in the third quarter, Jack Sorenson took over and led SHS to scores on four of its final five possessions. He closed the gap with an 11-yard TD run, then connected with Henry Marchese from three yards out to make it 35-33. Sorenson drove SHS down the field again, and Peter Drozdzewicz put the Pats ahead, 36-35, by kicking a 27-yard field goal with 3:49 to play. The field goal was only the second of the year for Drozdzewicz, and only his second attempt. Anthony Sabo provided some breathing room with a 34-yard TD run in the final minute. Sorenson finished the game 22-of-35 passing for 329 yards and two TDs, and also ran for 60 yards, scoring twice. Marchese caught both of Sorenson’s TD passes, and ended the night with 10 receptions for 140 yards. SHS won its fourth straight game, while Conant lost its third in a row. - Pioneer Press
