Football Wrap • Week 2 | Sandburg tops Oak Forest to even record

Spread the love

If Sandburg can be described in one word, it might be “resilient.”

One week after a loss at home to St. Rita, the Eagles bounced back with a 26-11 win on the road over host Oak Forest on Sept. 1.

Junior quarterback Anthony Shelton delivered an impressive performance, scoring on a 6-yard run and adding an 11-yard TD strike to Luke Dyra.

The Eagles have scored 47 points in their first two games.

“Anthony is taking a big step forward this year,” Sandburg coach Troy McAllister said. “He has an understanding of the offense, he’s leading the team, he’s making the right decisions at the right time, and each game we’re seeing him grow a little bit.”

Shelton is in his second season as the starting signal-caller for the Eagles.

“Anthony has a high football IQ,” McAllister said. “He sees what’s happening and he can take advantage of what the defense is doing.”

Along with Shelton and Dyra, Sandburg received contributions from sophomore running back Luke Basiorka, who tallied on a 28-yard run, and kicker Adrius Stankus, who booted field goals of 36 and 21 yards.

Up next for Sandburg is a road trip to DeKalb (1-1) Friday to conclude their nonconference slate. The Barbs are coming off a 20-7 home victory over Plainfield South.

“We played St. Rita in Week 1 and that was a physical game and we were pretty banged up,” McAllister said. “And Oak Forest is also a physical team. This was good for our young men to bounce back the way they did.”
