Kenwood dominates Schurz in final game

In one of the final sporting events held before the Chicago Public Schools teachers’ strike, the Kenwood Broncos football team dominated Schurz High School 50-0 on Thursday night during its homecoming game held at Knute Rockne Stadium.

“I just like that I was able to get all of the guys in today,” said Sinque Turner, head coach of the Broncos, after earning a 50-0 blowout victory over Schurz on Thursday night. “(We) opened (the game) up on the first carry and took it to the house.”

Enroute to their largest margin of victory of the season, the Broncos dominated from start to finish and would open the game up on a 70-yard touchdown run by running back Lewis Bond, earning a 7-0 lead with 11:36 remaining in the first quarter.

Bond was amazing throughout the night, finishing with a game high 105 yards, two touchdowns on three carries and game MVP honors.

“(The play call was) 23 trap (and) the blocks was just there,” said Lewis about his long touchdown run on the first play from scrimmage. “It was (all) based on my preparation.”

Bond explained that in spite of it being a short week of playing games between Saturday and Thursday, the Broncos offense was able to practice on Sunday afternoon, in preparation for Thursday’s match-up against Schurz.

The extra attention to detail not only helped the Broncos offense on Thursday night, but the defense as well. Junior cornerback Taylor Clark and freshman Davonte Weathersby-Johnson would combine for three interceptions of the night, including a three-yard interception touchdown return by Johnson, enroute to their third shutout of the season.

Final Score: Broncos 50, Schurz 0.
