Friday Night Lights
Game of the Week
Final: 2A No. 3 South Tama 21, 2A No. 5 Williamsburg 7
South Tama allowed points for the first time since the season opener.
As Trojans Coach Jay Hoskey said, it still hasn't been on the first-team defense that had posted five straight shutouts.
Class 2A third-ranked South Tama prevented No. 5 Williamsburg from scoring an offensive touchdown in a 21-7 non-district game Friday night at Bob Murphy Stadium.
The Trojans haven't allowed an offensive score in the last 24 quarters with the only one of the season coming against reserves. They take pride in their defensive philosophy.
“Our goal is to shut out a team every game,” said South Tama defensive back Cody Kellogg, who intercepted his fifth pass of the season. “Our defense is pretty tough. I think we're capable of that every game.”
South Tama allowed just 146 total yards and has a gang-tackling approach to stopping the opposition. Only seven plays against the Trojans went for double-digit gains.
“Our kids play as a unit,” Hoskey said. “They know defense is an 11-man game.”
