SATURDAY SENTINEL: Taking another look at Washington
Morris Community High School was still buzzing on Monday after the Redskins' thrilling overtime win in the IHSA Class 5A State Football Playoffs. It turned out to be a 28-27 win by the locals over Washington in a game in which they were behind 21-7 at one point with about 10 minutes to go.
"It was definitely exciting and closer than we'd like it to be, but credit goes to a very good Washington team. It was a quarterfinal game and you are going to expect a good game. They brought their 'A' game and gave us everything they had," Morris coach Alan Thorson said while filming this week's video, which can be found on the Morris Daily Herald website.
"I think it showed our kid's character and the fight this group has. I've seen that all year out of them. When we were down 14, the best thing I can say is that nobody panicked and nobody gave up and they were able to pull out a really huge win for us."
