Baby is healthy thanks to Oswego dad Chad Martinez’s actions last Friday.
Oswego resident and mother Megan Martinez said she used to make fun of people who had babies en route to the hospital because she never understood how they couldn’t make it there in time. Then it happened to her. Martinez’s water broke around 7:30 a.m. on Friday morning, according to ABC 7 News, and soon her contractions were just a minute and a half apart. Martinez said her husband, Chad, an Illinois State Trooper, helped her to the car where they began their drive to their hospital in Downers Grove. “When we got to Naperville road and I-88, I told him that there's a foot hanging out, and he didn't believe me,” Martinez told ABC 7. “And I reached, and there were toes. And I'm like Chad, there are toes.” They pulled the car over on I-88 …

Plainfield North 48, Oswego East 14. Kurt Palandech and Jay Roberts led the Tigers as they scored 48 unanswered points and halted the Wolves’ hopes for their first winning season.
Breaking It Down: The Wolves were looking for their first-ever winning season and a chance at a playoff berth. Things looked promising after recovering a fumble on the opening kickoff and scoring on a 6-yard pass to Scooter Smith to take an 8-0 lead. The Tigers’ running game, led by running back Jay Roberts and quarterback Kurt Palandech, dashed those hopes very quickly as they overran and overwhelmed the Wolves defense. The Tigers imposed their will in the first half, scoring touchdowns on their first five possessions. Palandech had an 88-yard QB sneak for a score in the first to give the Tigers a 14-8 lead. Roberts scored on a 36-yard run to close the first quarter and again early in the second on a nine-yard carry to put the Tigers up …

Oswego East 37, Romeoville 12: Three first-half touchdown passes by quarterback Sean Kennedy enabled the Wolves to remain in the hunt for their first playoff berth.
Breaking It Down: Oswego East had problems protecting the ball in its game last Friday against Minooka, which led to a lopsided 31-7 loss. In the first quarter, the Wolves' turnovers persisted with an interception by Sean Kennedy and a fumble. This time, however, the Oswego East defense was able to minimize the damage in a 37-12 victory over Romeoville on Friday night. The Wolves limited the Spartans to six points off of turnovers and pulled away to win their homecoming game. The offense took care of the rest. A terrific 48-yard punt return by Branden Lowe set up an 18-yard screen pass to running back Chris Cooper. And that put the Wolves in front 8-0. After Romeoville scored on a 5-yard run by Miguel Ford to cut the lead to 8-6, the …
