Same old same old for Falcons
WALKERTON — John Glenn’s football team punched the replay button...again.
For the third consecutive week the Falcons’ defense pitched a shutout and the offense rode a stellar effort from junior running back Josh Anderson, this time to a 49-0 Northern State Conference victory over visiting Triton Friday.
Glenn, which blanked Knox and LaVille over the last two weeks, benefited from five Triton turnovers — four fumbles and an interception — converting those miscues into 28 points.
“I think three shutouts in a season is the school record, so three consecutive shutouts is a school record,” Glenn head coach Justin Bogunia said. “Our kickoff coverage the last two weeks has done a great job pinning them deep. That helps the defense when (the opponents’) backs are against the wall.
“I’ve talked a lot about defensive pursuit,” he added. “We do a lot of drills that stress getting to the ball. That defensive pursuit is a key.”
