Naperville Police are investigating an armed robbery that happened just before 11:30 last night at a business in the 600 block of North Route 59. Police say these three men displayed a silver and black semi-automatic handgun and stole cash, cigarettes, keys and a cell phone. One employee suffered a minor injury but did not require medical attention. The suspects are still at large, so if you have any information, please contact the Naperville Police Department.
With this weekend’s downpour and a seven-day rainfall total of up to nine and a half inches in some sections of Naperville, city streets took a hit. A section of Naper Boulevard was closed for this morning’s rush hour due to flooding, and many other streets around town closed down over the weekend for that same reason. The good news: there’s no rain in the forecast for the rest of the week.
There were some big high school football games with playoff implications on Friday night.
Waubonsie Valley travelled to Naperville North needing a win to keep their playoff hopes alive. Nate Ashford did his part, scoring four touchdowns on the night. The Huskies tied the game late on the touchdown pass of the game from Drake Davis to Ryan Laurenzo. But with less than 40 seconds to go, Tanner Westwood found Chuck Robinson for the game winner; the Warriors live to fight another day thanks to the 42-35 victory.
Naperville Central fell behind early, but rallied to defeat a tough Wheaton North team 14 to 7. The win puts the Redhawks back on top of the DVC standings. The team can clinch the conference title with a win at Lake Park on Friday.
Neuqua Valley looked solid early against Lake Park, jumping out to a 23-9 lead early in the 4th quarter. But the Lancers came roaring back, tying the game and eventually forcing overtime. After the Wildcats fumbled on the first play of O.T, Lake Park took advantage with a two-yard touchdown run to win 29-23.
We’d also like to congratulate Neuqua Valley boys golfer Jack Vercautren on his runner up finish at the state golf meet. He finished two under for the weekend and one stroke behind champion Jackson Bussell of Stevenson.
