Glenbard West put on a masterful show of offense in throttling host Addison Trail 55-0 in a West Suburban Conference crossover Friday night.
The Hilltoppers (7-1) won their seventh game in a row since a first week loss to Wheaton Warrenville South. The Blazers dropped to 2-6.
Senior running back Scott Andrews scored a personal high 4 touchdowns and rushed for 172 yards in 18 carries.
"I think I played well," Andrews said. "We were really ready. We came out fast and we came out strong. Our offensive line did a great job. We just don't have many weak spots there. If they make a mistake on a play they come right back and make a good play."
Andrews' praise of Jack Kane, Ted Clauss, Eric Shute, Will Demos and Joe Leland did not go unnoticed by Addison coach Paul Parpet.
"We just could not match their intensity in the trenches," Parpet said. "The game was won upfront. That's the name of the game. They were very physical."
"Our offensive line is our calling card," said Glenbard West coach Chad Hetlet. "We executed pretty well and were sharp. If we can run the ball we're going to be successful. We just have some great guys upfront."
Andrews' first score was a 4-yard run with 5:42 left in the first half that capped an 8-play 82-yard drive. Andrews keyed the drive with a 29-yard run.
Following an interception by Griffin Burg at the Blazers 24-yard line it took the Hilltoppers four plays to score on Andrews' 3-yard run for a 14-0 lead.
Jermon Kindle Joyner increased the lead to 21-0 on a 1-yard run early in the second quarter.
Andrews scored his third touchdown on a 4-yard run with 2:43 left in the half, and quarterback Drew Vogg threw a 6-yard scoring pass to Connor Schrauth with 43 seconds left that made the score 34-0 at halftime.
Andrews put the game away with a 64-yard run on the first play in the third quarter for a 41-0 lead. Sean Mackey added some punch with 59 yards in 9 attempts. Kindle Joyner had 33 yards in 4 tries.
Tristan Brewer scored on runs of 6 and 9 in the second half to finish with 38 yards in 8 carries.
For the game Glenbard West piled up 354 rushing yards of their 421.
"The offensive line has just become better and better," Clauss said. "We're just trying to improve week by week. We learned from the loss to Wheaton South. It just made us want to improve each week."
Addison Trail managed 109 yards of total offense with quarterback Mike Rybarczyk completing 9 of 15 passes with 1 interception for 56 yards.
"I thought our defense played very well also except for the first series," Hetlet said.
