Big plays go against Redskins for a change
CHAMPAIGN — All season long, the Morris Redskins football team has thrived on the big play, be it the long run, a timely turnover or a huge special teams play.
Unfortunately for Morris, the Redskins found themselves on the wrong side of those exciting, momentum-creating snaps in a 19-6 loss to Montini Catholic for the Class 5A state title on Saturday morning. The few big plays they had of their own, they failed to capitalize on, and ultimately Montini would capture their fourth straight state championship.
The Redskins got things started in a big way, as they came out in the I-formation and, on the third play from scrimmage, Reese Sobol got to the edge and creased the defense for a 45-yard gain that moved them comfortably into Montini, before eventually moving down to the Montini 26. But that would be as far as Morris would advance until a fourth-quarter drive into the red zone.
