Indians Earn First-Round Playoff Win

In the first round the the 2018 high school football play-offs, the St. Francis Indians turned in a dominating performance versus the Stockton Tigers on Thursday, October 25. In a game played on Greene Field in St. Francis, the Indians shut-out the Tigers 46-0. The Tigers did not earn a first down in the contest while the Indians exploded for 30 2nd-quarter points to end the game at half-time due to the 45-point rule.

Stockton won the coin toss and elected to receive. Brady Beougher (175 lb. Sr. quarterback) returned the kick to the Tiger's 30 yard line where he was tackled by Tiernan Poling and Brady Dinkel. On the first play from scrimmage, the Tigers ran Jalen Basart (195 lb. Sr.) into the middle of the line. The carry was stopped by Adam Krien and Cody Baxter for no gain. Basart tried the left side on the next play with the same result. A third-down pass from Beougher fell incomplete. Facing 4th-&-10, the Tigers punted the football.

On the opening play of the drive, Beougher passed to Leighton Colburn (140 lb. So.) in the left flat gaining 5 yards. It would be one of the best plays the Tigers would have in the game.  Beougher's pass intended for Jace Hull (180 lb. So.) on 2nd-down was well-defended by Tiernan Poling and fell incomplete. Beougher ran the right side on third-down earning three yards before the play ended with a tackle by Poling and Hunter Helton. Facing 4th-&-2 deep in their own territory, the Tigers punted for the second time.

St. Francis was now on their own 10. Raby's next carry resulted in a 15-yard gain and a first down at the 25. The next play, a carry by Raby over the right side, gained 5 before a tackle by Coburn ended the run. After a Dinkel carry around the left end was stopped for no gain, Raby tried the right side. An illegal shift penalty on the Indians erased the gain and made the situation 4th-&-9 at the 27. On the next play, the Dinkel attempted a pass to Cody Baxter that fell incomplete. A holding penalty on the Tigers gave the Indians a new set of downs at the SF 37. Dinkel ran to the right earning 9 yards before being tackled by Troy Rogers (180 lb. So.).

Before the next snap, an illegal procedure penalty backed the Tigers up even more. Facing 3rd-&-30, Beougher tried the left side, but was stopped by Hunter Helton after a gain of only one. With Krien pressuring again, Beougher's roll-out to the right fell incomplete on the next play. Facing 4th-&-29, the Tigers punted yet again.
