The Oak Park and River Forest HIgh School football team has certainly shown a flair for the dramatic this season.

For the second straight week, the Huskies rallied from a double-digit deficit to pull out a victory. Trailing Downers Grove South 17-7 in the fourth quarter, OPRF scored 14 unaswered points to earn a hard-fought 21-17 win.

OPRF quarterback Brian May threw a 12-yard TD pass to Keith Robinson and running back Terrance Roundy scored the game-winning touchdown on a one-yard scamper into the end zone.

Six-foot-six, 220-pound defensive end Izaiah Ruffin led OPRF with 7.5 tackles, inlcuding 1.5 sacks and 3 tackles for loss.
