ACES FOOTBALL TEAM HONORED

MOUNT CARMEL – In Mt. Carmel High School head football coach Darren Peach’s way of thinking, the unofficial record his Golden Aces set in 2015 probably cost them a shot at a winning season and their 10th consecutive playoff appearance:

Most injuries in a season.

As the Aces infirmary bulged and the personnel losses mounted, the veteran Peach and his staff first tweaked the offense, then eventually shelved the entire defensive scheme to fit who was left standing. As it was, the Aces were still only one play – a last-second loss to Princeton would be first to consider but there were others – away from a 5-4 finish and admittance to the IHSA post-season party for the 32nd time in 33 years.

“If we had all of our bullets in our gun, we would have been playing yesterday,” said Peach Sunday at the team’s post-season awards program at Parkview Christian Church, a reference to the playoff semifinals held one day earlier, the same round the Aces found themselves in last year (a 42-8 loss at Williamsville that concluded a 10-3 season).
