Baby is healthy thanks to Oswego dad Chad Martinez’s actions last Friday.
Oswego resident and mother Megan Martinez said she used to make fun of people who had babies en route to the hospital because she never understood how they couldn’t make it there in time. Then it happened to her. Martinez’s water broke around 7:30 a.m. on Friday morning, according to ABC 7 News, and soon her contractions were just a minute and a half apart. Martinez said her husband, Chad, an Illinois State Trooper, helped her to the car where they began their drive to their hospital in Downers Grove. “When we got to Naperville road and I-88, I told him that there's a foot hanging out, and he didn't believe me,” Martinez told ABC 7. “And I reached, and there were toes. And I'm like Chad, there are toes.” They pulled the car over on I-88 …

Oswego East 37, Romeoville 12: Three first-half touchdown passes by quarterback Sean Kennedy enabled the Wolves to remain in the hunt for their first playoff berth.
Breaking It Down: Oswego East had problems protecting the ball in its game last Friday against Minooka, which led to a lopsided 31-7 loss. In the first quarter, the Wolves' turnovers persisted with an interception by Sean Kennedy and a fumble. This time, however, the Oswego East defense was able to minimize the damage in a 37-12 victory over Romeoville on Friday night. The Wolves limited the Spartans to six points off of turnovers and pulled away to win their homecoming game. The offense took care of the rest. A terrific 48-yard punt return by Branden Lowe set up an 18-yard screen pass to running back Chris Cooper. And that put the Wolves in front 8-0. After Romeoville scored on a 5-yard run by Miguel Ford to cut the lead to 8-6, the …

Oswego East High School was presented the Crosstown Challenge Cup during halftime of its Southwest Prairie Conference football game Friday at Oswego. It was the last straw for the Panthers, who rallied from a 21-7 deficit to beat the Wolves 35-28 in the sixth meeting between the schools. Oswego (2-2, 2-0 in the SPC) has never lost to Oswego East (2-2, 0-2). “I knew our kids were going to come back and play better than we did in the first half,” Oswego coach Dave Keely said. “It was a team effort in the second half and we put two good quarters together.” “We always talk about setting goals and one of our goals this week was breaking down walls,” Oswego quarterback Ryan West said. “Oswego East was that wall we had to break down tonight…
