As the high school football season rolls toward its midway point, the Oswego offense is sure following suit.
The Panthers’ 41-0 win over Romeoville on Friday marked the third time in four weeks Oswego has eclipsed 40 points and sends them into next week’s rivalry game with Oswego East on quite the roll having outscored its opponents 83-0 in the last two weeks.
Big plays were the order of the night for the Panthers (3-1) as they had six plays go for 30 yards or more and three go for 50-plus.
The first big play came with 1:53 to go in the first quarter as Brett Wawright connected with Jack Kwiatkowski on a 47-yard scoring strike that gave Oswego a 14-0 lead.
That advantage grew to 35-0 at the break when freshman quarterback Steven Frank connected with Jamaal Richardson on an 8-yard TD pass with less than a minute to go before halftime.
“The last two weeks all of our kids have played assignment sound football,” Oswego coach Brian Cooney said.
Bryce Holm carried the ball seven times for 101 yards to lead the Oswego ground game, while Wawright had just three carries and two passes but those five plays led to 176 total yards.
Romeoville fell to 0-4 on the season. Miguel Ford led the offense with 82 yards on 20 carries and also caught a pass for 23 yards.
“I thought we played better than last week against Plainfield Central,” Romeoville coach Jeff Kuna said. “When we go down the list (Saturday) morning, we have done a lot more positives than we did a week ago.”
