Rams Bow At Tolono

SHELBYVILLE, IL. — Shelbyville football (3-6) said good-bye to the 2013 season at Tolono on Friday night, losing to the play-off bound Rockets (7-2), 25-7.

It was a game of halves. Tolono won the 1st half 25-0. Shelbyville won the 2nd half, 7-0. The first half was all Tolono offense. The 2nd half was all Ram defense, except for one Ram offensive drive to start the 3rd quarter.

Jared Finley retruned the kickoff to the 38 yard line.On the first play, Lucas Duckett threw to Devin Peterson for 16 yards and the Rams first 1st down of the game in Tolono territory. A run for a loss and then a quarterback sack put the Rams at 3rd and 18 at their own 46 yard line.

Duckett, who was just 2-of-8 in the 1st half, hit his second pass in a row a 34 yard pass to Wyatt Fox, giving the Rams their second 1st down of the game at the Tolono 14. Peterson ran for two yards.

On 2nd and 2, Duckett connected again, this time to Tristan Wade for a 12 yard touchdown. The Rams went 62 yards in seven plays and scored in 2 minutes and 36 seconds. Senior Dylan Patch, playing in his last game, kicked the extra-point, cutting the Tolono lead to three touchdowns, 25-7.

Neither team would score over the next 21 minutes of the game, as the defenses ruled the turf.

In the first half, Shelbyville didn't pick up a 1st down and Tolono put together some long drives for three of their four scores.

Shelbyville was down just 7-0, when the Ram defense stiffened and a holding penalty gave Tolono a 4th and 17 at their own 21. Devin Peterson blocked the Tolono punt and Tristan Wade recovered the ball at the Tolono 7.

Shelbyville had a chance to tie the game or go ahead. But like many times this season, the imposing nature of the goal line caused the Ram offense to wilt as they got inside the red zone.
