CENTRAL ILLINOIS (25 NEWS) - Three area teams saw their state title hopes disappear Saturday in the semifinals.

In 5A, Morton falls to Kankakee 41-14. Running back Seth Glatz had 204 rushing yards on 37 carries and two touchdowns.

“We’re very proud of what we’ve done,” Tim Brilley, Morton head coach, said. “And, they got to hold their heads up high and look at where they’ve taken us and take a step back and it’s going to hurt for a little bit.”

“It’s a bittersweet end,” Glatz said. “I mean, we had a great season just for it to come down like this, not play very well, just kind of sucks but at the same time we’re still proud of ourselves.”

In 2A, Tri-Valley falls to Wilmington 42-14.

“They didn’t quit on us today,” Josh Roop, Tri-Valley head coach, said. “I’m really, really proud of them and I’m really thankful for what they did for our program this year. these seniors left a legacy.”

“Obviously I’m sad but, I think I’ll miss most just some of the memories you make with the guys out here on Friday nights,” Andrew Petrilli, Tri-Valley senior quarterback, said. “I mean, it’s been the best four years of my life so.”

In 1A, Ridgeview-Lexington loses to Lena-Winslow 28-12.
