Dunbar (4-3) visited Lane Tech (2-4) in Chicago Public League action on Friday, in what started off as a stalemate after the first quarter. Both teams were trying to figure each other out when Lane Tech scored in the second quarter on a run by running back Victor Gonzalez. Dunbar matched the Gonzalez TD with a score of their own and a 2-point conversion to take an 8-7 lead. After a 3-and-out by the Indians… Dunbar coughed the ball up on a 4th down punt to give the Indians great field position late in the 2nd quarter. Lane Tech would eventually score on a QB keeper down near the goal line by Indians QB Jack McLaughlin to take a 14-8 lead. After that score, the Dunbar defense stepped it up after making several encroachment penalties… and held the Indians scoreless the rest of the way, as their offense got red hot.
Dunbar QB Darvell Harris, WR/DB Jayton Dorsey and WR/DB Travon Harris put on a 3-man wrecking crew the rest of the way. Connecting on several long passes and even a defensive fumble recovery for a touchdown was all that the Lane Tech Indians could handle, as the score got out of hand in a hurry. After the 3rd quarter ended with a 36-14 lead, the Mighty Men of Dunbar added 20 more points in the 4th quarter which saw an acrobatic one-handed grab for a touchdown by senior Travon Harris to put an exclamation point on the victory. The final was 56-14. Photos taken by Jason Davis of the Welles Park Bulldog.
