Buffalo Grove Sacks Maine West, 30-7
Journal-Topics, September 11, 2017
Maine West (2-1) had high hopes against visiting Buffalo Grove, but the Bison quickly dashed those hopes on their way to 30-7 win Friday night giving West its first loss of the season.  Buffalo Grove’s Justin Gold lived up to his last name with 7 sacks and 13 tackles to help the Bison improve to 3-0 for the first time since 2002. The Bison recorded at least 8 sacks in the game, but depending on how you classify a sack, it could have been 10. Maine West ran 12 plays for negative yardage against the Bison after scoring 82 points combined over their first two games.  Read Story
