Cardinals Pink-Out for Daniel and Stomp the Memorial Chargers

This entry is part 21 of 20 in the series Football

After their victory against Nathan Hale, the Collinsville varsity football returned home to face against the Memorial Chargers. Collinsville had a lot of momentum after their win against Hale.

The varsity team was off to a slow start at first. Memorial took an early lead on Collinsville after a 20-yard field goal on their first drive. Collinsville then lost the ball on their next two drives due to fumbles, but near the end of the first quarter, Collinsville regained their footing in the game. Jake Tuttle rushed down the field for 60 yards for a Cardinal touchdown in just six plays.

Collinsville’s offense, led by QB Carson Stout, extended their lead throughout the rest of the game. Tuttle was the leading rusher for Collinsville with total of 186 rushing yards and an average of 10.94 yards per run. Malcolm Tillman and Brayden Burd were also strong RBs for the Cards. Tillman had 47 rushing yards and two rushing touchdowns. Burd had 55 total yards, but he mostly stood out on the defensive side. Stout was another lead scorer for Collinsville, running 18 yards for a touchdown in the third quarter. Hayden West also had a huge impact on the game, returning the ball 4 times Friday night, totaling up to 172 yards. He returned one of the kickoffs for a Cardinal touchdown. 

The Cardinal defense looked stronger than ever against the Chargers. The defense only allowed 7 first downs and 10 total points for Memorial. Collinsville’s defense sacked the Memorial QB seven times and recovered two fumbles. Burd made one sack, also with 13 tackles and two for loss of yards. Spencer Oslin had two sacks, 10 tackles, and four for loss of yards. The rest of these sacks were made by Cameron Camp, Adam Carney, Trey Eberle, and Tres Sexton.

Collinsville defeated the Memorial Chargers 35-10. The Cardinals achieved their first back-to-back wins of the 2017 season. After two wins with large margins, the Cardinals are ready to take on Pryor next week.
