Going into their Friday night showdown with host Round Lake, the Proviso East football team had not won a game since the 2014 season. The night ended with the Pirates snapping their losing streak by beating the Round Lake Panthers 20-7.

According to a report in the Daily Herald, East had lost 35 straight games before their victory on Aug. 24, which increased Round Lake’s losing streak to eight games.

Round Lake coach Cristo Garza told the Daily Herald that the members of East’s football team “played their butts off. Hats off to Proviso. They’d been looking for that win, and good for them to get it.”

  1. This definitely put a smile to my face! As a graduate and alumni of Proviso East High School, I’m so happy that the Boys Varsity Football team finally broke the losing streak since 2014. Congratulations to Coach Oliver Speller on a job well done! I am looking forward to this football season. Let’s go Pirates! Bleed “royal blue.”
