Judge Rejects Lawsuit To Overturn High School Playoff Football Loss
A Cook County judge is rejecting a lawsuit by a northern Illinois high school to overturn its disputed playoff football loss last weekend. Fenwick was defeated by Plainfield North, 18-17, in overtime Saturday after the referees incorrectly awarded the Plainfield squad an extra play. Fenwick filed suit but a judge ruled yesterday that she had no authority to change the outcome of the game. Plainfield North will now play in the Class 7A championship game against East St. Louis on Saturday in Champaign.
