Senior quarterback Chase Hamilton returned from an ankle injury that had kept him out since Week 3, splitting time with Jacob White and Thomas Ives. Hinsdale Central never trailed.
Hamilton's injury contributed to a roller-coaster season for the Red Devils. After an opening-week loss to Bolingbrook, Hinsdale Central ran off three straight wins to get to 3-1. They lost three of their next four games, leaving them in a must-win situation Friday night.
