Lions attack York

Michael Bellisario's 49-yard touchdown run in the first quarter of Lyons Township's showdown with West Suburban (Silver) Conference foe York on Friday night set the tone for the Lions, who won their second straight game.

LT came away with a 24-13 victory after the Lions' Neal Loftus closed out the scoring with a 5-yard TD run in the final minutes of the fourth quarter.

The Lions (2-2, 2-0) host Proviso West on Friday (7:30 p.m.).
