The York football team's rebuilding project was placed on temporary hold Friday night thanks to an angry Mother Nature, which dumped buckets of rain and loads of lightning on the Oak Park-River Forest football field.

The game was suspended with 10:59 left in the third quarter with the Dukes down 21-7 to OPRF. It will pick back up at 8:30 a.m. Saturday.


York scored its only touchdown with 2:41 left in the first quarter, the result of an 80-yard drive orchestrated by senior quarterback Danny Dunn, who completed 5 of 6 passes for 55 yards. That included the scoring play, an 11-yard pass to senior tight end Tyrone Birmingham.

But the Dukes couldn't capitalize on a recovered fumble on the opening kickoff, nor an interception by Josiah Scott late in the first half.

However, the Dukes did sack Huskies quarterback Jaden McGill three times. But McGill exacted his revenge by rushing for a 6-yard score and completing a 9-yard touchdown pass to Trevon Brown with 26 seconds left in the first half.

York senior wide receiver Joe Orrico had 7 catches for 49 yards. Dunn was 10-for-24 passing for 62 yards.
