The Galesburg Silver Streaks football team ended the football season on a disappointing note Friday night. The Streaks had a 20-0 lead over the Rock Island Alleman Pioneers early in the third quarter, then got shut down, and did not have a first down the rest of the game. Then, the Pioneers suddenly found a way to move the football, scoring on their last four possessions, including a field goal with just over 30 seconds left in the game, to come away with a 23-20 victory.
Dre Egipciaco was our Dave’s Autobody Crunch Time Player of the Game. He had two touchdown receptions — the first involving nifty footwork, and the second just fending off a defender in the end zone.
The Streaks end the season having lost their last four games, making them 2-4 overall. They’ll be back at it soon when the summer workouts begin, with their first football game in about four months when they open the next season against Dunlap.
