WHITEHOUSE – A slobberknocker broke out between D-II, Region 6 combatants St. Francis and Anthony Wayne on Friday night, with the Knights coming out on top, 10-7.
“I wasn’t expecting that,” said Chipka of the low-scoring affair. “I was expecting kind of an AFC North throwdown or an NFC North throwdown. Just a great defensive effort by both teams. Both stout defenses and we both like to run the ball. I felt like both of us took away the run game. It was a matter of making plays down field.”
AW entered the game averaging 41.3 ppg and St. Francis was averaging 30.9 ppg.
St. Francis earns a rematch at Central Catholic with the win in the Region 6 quarterfinals next Friday.
