Unity run game prevails
by Keith Stewart
Friday’s game is so far, and likely to be, SOV’s worst game of the season, at least when looking at the score, a whopping 0-50 loss at the hands of perennial football powerhouse Tolono-Unity, who was ranked No. 7 in class 3A heading into the contest.
But if there was ever a score that was misleading, it was in fact Friday’s, for the game was not complete dominance as the scoreboard suggested.
After stopping Unity on fourth-and-one on their opening drive, the Redskins put together what would be their longest series of the game, consisting of six first downs, marching all the way to the Unity 18-yard line, before turning the ball over on fourth-and-12.
“That first drive, we came out with trying to run the ball right at them and develop the mentality that’s been successful for us and not making some very smart play calls,” said Unity head coach Scott Hamilton. “They got us off balance, had us jump a couple times but in the end, we made some big plays and got the stops when we had to and then we were able to move down the field.”Login or Subscribe to read the rest of this story.
