Providence Catholic defeated Bradley-Bourbonnais 44-7 in the first round of the Class 7A IHSA playoffs with a strong run attack led by Brandon Price.
Breaking It Down: Providence Catholic played with a chip on their shoulder in the first round of the Class 7A IHSA playoffs. Except for a fumble inside the Boilermakers' red zone on Providence's opening drive that gave fans an uncomfortable reminder of the previous week, it was smooth sailing for the Celtics on their way to a 44-7 win.

Breaking It Down: No, it’s not true that the game ball went to the last man standing. Rather, it went to the littlest man—Chad Weaver. His do-it-all performance powered Providence Catholic to a 40-34 football victory over Joliet Catholic Academy Friday night on the Celtics' new synthetic turf field in New Lenox. An overflow crowd and ESPNU television audience watched the neighborhood rivals slug it out from start-to-finish in a battle of attrition. JCA senior running back Ty Isaac, a USC recruit, was the first to go down. He exited with a shoulder injury at the 2:37 mark of the first quarter. Later, Providence’s Brandon Price was sidelined with an ankle injury, but not before he made his presence known, too. Price ripped off a 77-yard TD …
