Varsity Football Enjoys a Comfortable Homecoming Win

By George Panoutsos

On Friday Night, The Niles West Wolves Varsity football team came out firing against rivals Maine East for the homecoming football game. The end result: 53-7 Niles West victory.

The game began with a quick score for Niles West to get the ball rolling. By the end of the first quarter, the Wolves were up 40-0, fueled by touchdowns from  senior Deante Dunum recovering a fumble as well as senior Tommy Galanopoulos lighting up the scoreboard along with senior Quran Spillman running back a punt return and having multiple scores throughout the game.

For the rest of the game, Niles West pulled their starters to give everyone a chance to play in front of a supportive homecoming crowd, despite the cold and rainy weather.

Galanopoulos felt this was a crucial fictory. “It was a big win after a tough loss last week and will help us build momentum for a big game against GBN this week,” he said.
