WEEK THREE - FALCONS LOSE IN TOLONO TO TOUGH UNITY – by Tom Benefiel (9-12-14)

Colton Reed rumbled for three touchdowns in Unity of Tolono's 48-8 victory against the visiting GCMS Falcons.

Reed and quarterback Taylor White attacked early and often as they went through the GCMS defense for 232 total rushing yards. Reed compiled 124 on 15 carries.

White added a touchdown run of his own, and he later connected with Hiley Freeman to put Unity (3-0) up 42-0 and start the continuous running clock.

The Rockets racked up 522 total yards of offense and held the Falcons to 194. At halftime, Unity had 24 first downs.

Keegan Allen threw the ball 31 times for GCMS (1-2) and was intercepted five times, including four times by Unity’s Chris Branson. The fifth interception was returned 20 yards by C.J. Parks for a score.

Tristan Smith and Zach Johnson led the Falcons’ defense with 12 and 10 tackles, respectively. Wingbacks Nick Meunier and Tyler Hinshaw were held to a combined 8 yards on seven carries. Freshman Mitch McNutt recorded a sack as well.

Late in the game, the Falcons got on the board with a touchdown run by Tucker Cribbett, and converted the two-point conversion on a pass from sophomore Keegan Allen to his twin brother Austin.

The Falcon Fan of the Game is Alfred Landau of Gibson City, and the football trivia winner is Doug Johnson of Sibley.

TITANS SPOIL BLUE RIDGE'S HOMECOMING, BEAT THE RIDGE IN FARMER CITY – by Tom Benefiel (9-13-14)

The Titans of El Paso-Gridley use all their weapons to route Ridgeview-Blue Ridge, 53-6.

EPG came out of the game strong, getting a three-and-out on The Ridge’s first possession and ultimately turning it into a 1-yard touchdown run by Dustyn Brown.

The Titans (3-0) kept up their stingy defense and bruising offense in the Heart of Illinois Conference rout.

EPG got another rushing touchdown from Brown to go with his 34-yard punt-block return for a score, and Tyler Russell also scored on a pair of rushing touchdowns for the Titans.

The Ridge (0-3) scored its first touchdown of the season in the fourth quarter on a 22-yard rush by freshman Devin Burton.
