Bolingbrook 45, Homewood-Flossmoor 28. Three rushing touchdowns by Raiders QB Aaron Bailey and a punishing running game propel Raiders to 5-0.
Breaking It Down: It was about the running game for much of the game between the Bolingbrook and Homewood-Flossmoor.

Vikings forward Tim Williams returned Friday night in Homewood-Flossmoor's win over Bolingbrook, and he should be a key contributor come playoff time.
Post players are always key in the playoffs. Good thing for Homewood-Flossmoor that forward Tim Williams is back in the lineup. Williams, a 6-foot-7 junior, returned to action in the Vikings’ 58-54 victory over Bolingbrook on Friday night after being out since late November with an ankle injury. He contributed nine points in the victory. “Having Tim Williams back is just a welcome addition,” H-F coach Jim McLaughlin said. “He’s really going to make a difference for us as we get into March.” H-F guard David Fatoki said that with Williams back, the team is really gelling. “We’re really high right now. We’re jacked up to play,” Fatoki said. Despite Williams’ presence and a 14-point second-half lead for the Vikings, Bolingbrook fought back to…

Homewood-Flossmoor 58, Bolingbrook 54. The Vikings survived a late Bolingbrook rally, as the Raiders tried to stage their second upset in a week.
The Hot Read: Homewood-Flossmoor received a treat Friday night as 6-foot-7 junior forward Tim Williams returned to action from an ankle injury he suffered in late November. H-F led 12-8 to start the second quarter, and Williams extended the lead for the Vikings, scoring on an offensive rebound and nailing a three-pointer. H-F hit two more three-pointers in the second quarter and the Vikings lead 27-18 at halftime. Trailing by nine points entering the fourth quarter, Bolingbrook didn’t give up. The Raiders were hoping the magic would extend from their victory over Lockport a week prior, and it almost did. With 2:40 to play, senior guard Dan Fisher cut the lead to 46-40 on a fast-break lay-up. The Raiders got within four at 47-43, but that’s…

Four Vikings socred in double-figures in a 71-49 boys basketball victory over the Raiders on Friday night.
It took some time, but Homewood-Flossmoor asserted itself on both ends of the court. And, by the time 32 minutes had come and gone, the Vikings stood triumphant with another boys basketball road victory. Julian Lewis was one of three Vikings (11-3) to post a double-digit scoring night. Tyrone Sherman joined Lewis, scoring 16 points. Dalvon Rencher chipped in with 10 points to round out the trio of top scorers. Two others nearly joined Homewood-Flossmoor's top three scorers as David Fatoki and Antonio Bishop each ended up with nine points. In total, eight different Vikings scored. Yet, H-F coach Jim McLaughlin came away praising his team's effort on defense. "When you're able to hold a team in the 40s like we did, you usually come out on …

Lady Vikings surprise powerful Lady Raiders early but can't go the distance in Tuesday night's conference basketball game.
The start of the New Year saw another victory for the nationally ranked Bolingbrook girls basketball team, but head coach Tony Smith wants his players to resolve to play a lot harder the rest of the season. The Lady Raiders struggled early before surging past the host Homewood-Flossmoor Lady Vikings 61-40 Tuesday night in a Southwest Suburban Conference Blue division game. Bolingbrook (10-2, 4-0) came into the game fresh off two long road trips in which the Lady Raiders faced some of the toughest competition in the country. Homewood-Flossmoor (13-4, 3-1) was hoping to take advantage of its home court to steal one from Bolingbrook. The Lady Vikings played a strong first quarter to hang with the Lady Raiders, as H-F's stifling defensive …
