East sets NIC-10 football records with 86-6 win over Jefferson

ROCKFORD — East’s 86-6 victory over Jefferson Saturday set modern NIC-10 Conference football records.

The 86 points put up by East is the most ever scored by an East football team and the most scored in a Northern Illinois Conference football game since Rockford defeated Joliet 100-0 back in 1920.

Jefferson falls to 0-3.

The win also puts East in the driver’s seat to capture the NIC-10 B Division. The E-Rabs host the Freeport Pretzels (3-1) this Friday. The winner will play the winner of this Saturday’s Harlem-Boylan game for the overall conference title.
