Galesburg Silver Streaks Football vs. Rock Island Alleman Pioneers

WGIL 565


Here’s a recap of tonight’s game courtesy of WGIL’s Brad Bennewitz:


“A crazy night of football at Rock Island’s Augustana College, which started with a lengthy power outage in Rock Island that delayed the game between the Silver Streaks and the Pioneers by a good 45 minutes, and ended up continuing on just as crazy as it could be. It was a bit of an offensive ‘power outage’ throughout the first half. Silver Streaks had a couple of touchdowns negated by one questionable fumble call and another negated because of a holding penalty. Both teams went to the locker rooms in a scoreless tie. Silver Streaks finally found the offense on a 9 yd touchdown pass from Jacob Ross to Nick Myler to open up the scoring in the 3rd quarter. And then they tacked on two touchdowns in the 4th Quarter, again a Ross to Myler connection of 57 yds which made it 14 to nothing.


“And then Fernando Diaz with a key interception on Alleman’s next to last possession of the game. He returned the ball down into Alleman territory, a 15 yd personal foul penalty moved the Streaks to the 26, then four plays later Nick Myler scored the third touchdown of the game which put the game out of reach. Galesburg also featured two goal line stands which kept Alleman out of the endzone and it resulted in Galesburg’s first back to back shut-out since 1990. They’re also alone in first place, 3-0 in the conference for the first time since 1991, with a chance to wrap up an outright conference title next Friday night at home when the Rock Island Rocks come to town.


“Silver Streaks sophomores lost a shortened game due to the power outage 16-7 but the varsity with a big win, 21-0 to spoil Alleman’s Homecoming.”
