Geneva wins the battle of the swamp at St. Charles North.

The sophomore Vikings and North Stars went toe to toe in the rain Friday night, battling in a close game until Geneva pulled away with a touchdown early in the fourth quarter for a 19-7 win.

Geneva took first blood with 54 seconds left in the first quarter on a sustained drive and a 1-yard touchdown plunge by Liam Burns.

The North Stars came back in the second quarter, scoring on a 3-yard run by Chris Paige to take a 7-6 lead with 4:34 on the clock. But Geneva score two minutes later on an interception return by Alex Lobrillo for a 13-7 lead at halftime.
