Here is where we will post in-game high school football scores during the fall 2012 season.
RANTOUL — The Sangamon Valley Conference will not add new members any time soon. In a three-hour Wednesday meeting, the eight league principals voted not to accept applications for admission from Monticello, Unity and Dwight. In votes taken separately, none of the schools received the required six votes to be admitted to the Sangamon Valley Conference.
There are three sets of potential bubble teams: 1. Six schools that currently have five wins and need only to go 1-1 during the final two weeks to assure themselves of a playoff game; 2. Five schools with four wins. They still control their own destiny, if they capture victories each of the next two Fridays; and 3.
PAXTON — John Overstreet’s duties at Paxton-Buckley-Loda changed in late September. When he added activities director to his title as athletic director, he was asked to relinquish coaching duties.

CHAMPAIGN — If it’s important to play like you practice, then Danville’s Chris Collier would have been in trouble.
“I haven’t thrown a pass since two-a-days,” the Danville junior said.
For the second week in a row, however, Collier was summoned in relief at quarterback and helped the Vikings secure a 44-17 Big 12 Conference football win over Central on Friday at Tommy Stewart Field.
MONTICELLO — The streak lives on.
Unity’s Justin Deters hit wideout Derek Hooker in stride for a late fourth-quarter touchdown to rally the Rockets past Monticello 18-14 to spoil the Sages’ homecoming.
CHAMPAIGN — Storm Joop threw three touchdowns — including two to Kevin Carroll — as the Sabers kept their playoff hopes alive with a 49-14 win against Paxton-Buckley-Loda on Friday.
“If five (wins) can get us in, it puts us another step closer to that,” St. Thomas More coach Dan Hennessey said. “It gives the kids a boost in confidence that, hey, we can still do it.”
