Galesburg Silver Streaks Football vs. Rock Island Alleman Pioneers

WGIL 559


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.”

Galesburg Silver Streaks Football vs. Moline Maroons

WGIL 731

SpotLight-GHS-Sports-FootBaThe GHS Silver Streaks beat the Moline Maroons 21-14 for Galesburg’s Homecoming game that took two day to complete. Last night around 8:30 with the game tied at 7 with 7:36 left in the half, there was a lightning delay that ultimately resulted in the postponement of the game until 1pm today(9/19). After holding the tie through to halftime Galesburg pulled ahead early in the 3rd quarter to lead 14-7 only to have Moline catch up shortly after and tie it once again at 14. Galesburg then got a 3rd and final touchdown in the 4th quarter bringing their lead to 21-14. However, with 5 minutes left in the game, Moline had plenty of time to tie it up and possibly send the game into overtime. That thought was cut short when Fernando Diaz caught the game ending interception with just 3:26 left to play. Galesburg held onto the ball for the final 3 and a half minutes and got their first win at home for the season. This brings them to 2-2 for the season and 1-0 in the conference. Moline is now 1-3 for the season and 0-1 in the conference. Galesburg will be playing again next Friday against United Township with a pre-game time set for 7:06 and kick off scheduled to go about 7:30. You can tune in and catch all the action on 93.7FM and 1400AM WGIL, WGIL.com, or the TuneIn app with play by play from Brad Bennewitz and Jim Lee.

Galesburg Silver Streaks Football @ LaSalle-Peru Cavaliers

WGIL 397


Here is a recap of tonight’s(9/04) game courtesy of Brad Bennewitz:

                     “Galesburg High School compiled nearly 500 yards in total offense in a 49 – 8 win at LaSalle-Peru tonight (9/04/15) to even their record for the season at 1-1. DeAndre Moren was the rushing star of the night, 24 carries for 325 yards and two touchdowns, but Nick Myler also had a couple of touchdown runs. Fernando Diaz and Jacob Ross had touchdown runs as well. And Ross also found Jacob Carl on a pass reception for the 7th touchdown of the night as Galesburg found continuous clock with 11 minutes left in the game and cruised to their first win of the season.

                      “Silver Streaks now wrap up their non-conference schedule, at least the prior to the Western Big 6 as they take on Marion at home next Saturday at Van Dyke Field. It’ll be a 2 o’clock kick off and our pre-game next Saturday will come your way at about 1:30pm here on WGIL. Again, Galesburg wins it big, evens the record at 1-1 on the season, meanwhile the freshman lost the prior game 32-22. The Sophomores play LaSalle-Peru tomorrow(9/05).”
