There’s no secret why Glenbard North has won seven straight games. It’s simple.
“We play good defense and run the football,” Panthers coach Ryan Wilkens said.
Neuqua Valley scored slightly over its average but Glenbard North came up with the defensive plays it needed, 2 interceptions apiece by Tyrik Henderson and Jace James.
And the Panthers ran the ball. Devion Hodges carried 38 times for 276 yards and 4 touchdowns and Isaiah Hawkins added 45 yards and 2 more scores to pace Glenbard North’s 42-28 DuPage Valley Conference victory in Naperville.
