Simoncelli becomes third straight DGS recipient of Athlete of the Week award.
A note from the editors at Patch: By the voting deadline for this week's Athlete of the Week (9 p.m. Nov. 2), A.J. Simoncelli of Downers Grove South had 54 percent of the votes, making him the clear winner. A.J. Simoncelli didn't produce eye-popping numbers in Downers Grove South's 37-24 playoff-opening win last week. He didn't pass for 300 yards, didn't throw four touchdown passes. Statistical benchmarks like that weren't really reached. What the senior quarterback did for the Mustangs though was exactly what they needed, and then some. Efficient, Simoncelli completed 74 percent of his passes (17 of 23) for 230 yards. Effective, he threw two touchdown passes and completed first-down passes to five different receivers. And then some? Well…

Lemont senior keeper makes three crucial saves in the final minutes to preserve the Indians' 1-1 draw against Downers Grove South on Saturday afternoon.
By virtually any standard of measurement, Lemont should have been at the wrong end of a one-sided loss Saturday afternoon. "Soccer is a funny game," Downers Grove South boys coach Jon Stapleton said after the Mustangs' 1-1 draw with the Indians. "We had a lot of opportunities today. It just didn't happen." The final 15 minutes of the match told a defining story of Lemont resolve and was underscored by Downers' equally firm feistiness. One minute into that stretch, Downers Grove South senior dynamo Joe McLean, all 5-4 of him, had his contested shot dribble inches outside of the post. Then, with Lemont sensing an upset, Downers South keeper Sam Hadley made the save of the match, stoning the Indians' Brandon Sabanov after the senior …
