Week 5 of the high school football season has come and gone. Before we gear up for Week 6, here are six takeaways from Friday night games:. The Redbirds, ranked No. 8 among Class 5A schools, moved to 5-0 following a 45-14 win over Dunlap. A little bit of defense (a Garrett Taylor pick-6) and a whole lot of offense (two first-half rushing TDs from Ethan Petri) keep Metamora in the hunt for the Mid-Illini Conference title at 3-0. Metamora, which got a pair of TDs and 139 rushing yards from QB Connor Willerton, heads to Morton (3-2, 2-1) next Friday.
