Galesburg Silver Streaks Football vs Dunlap Eagles

The Galesburg High School football team opened up its 2019 season in the exact same fashion as it did in 2018…tied with Dunlap at 7 at halftime, and falling 21-7 for the Final.

The Eagles got a 49-yard touchdown pass from Jackson Chatterton to Casey Ericson midway through the 4th quarter that put them on top 14-7. The Silver Streaks were unable to get a 1st down on their next possession. Dunlap then just handed it off to their big fullback, Mitchell Gore, who almost single-handedly moved the ball downfield and ultimately gave them the two touchdown victory.

Our Dave’s Autobody Crunch Time Player of the Game was sophomore Dre Egipciaco who made a tremendous catch on a 10-yard pass play and then stopped on a dime, reversed direction, cut to the opposite field outrunning the defense for a 48-yard touchdown and the Streaks’ only score of the night.

The Galesburg freshman lost the opener, 27-7. The Galesburg JV will play their first game on Monday night.

Next up for the Silver Streaks, a road trip to Centralia next Saturday (9/07). WGIL will begin the pregame at 12:30 PM with a 1:00 PM kick-off.
