Shiloh Skyhawks Defeat St. John’s in Convincing Playoff Victory
It's safe to say the Shiloh Skyhawks are in playoff form after a convincing win over St. John's on Saturday during the first round of the 9-man state tournament. Running back AJ Dale posted huge numbers during the 63-24 victory, rushing for 143 yards and three touchdowns and catching two more scores.
Shiloh dominated the ground game, rushing 40 times for 350 yards as a team. The undefeated Skyhawks were nearly perfect through the air, completing 6 of 7 passes for 111 yards.
Head coach Funnon Barker explained the team's strategy coming into the match-up:
We wanted to come out and be physical up front and wear them down as the game went on. I think we did that.
