Maroons score 27-14 win over Newton

| September 26, 2022

While it may not have been their best showing of the season, the performance was good enough for Robinson High School’s football team to pick up its third straight win Friday night. The Maroons jumped out to an early lead, then held on to down visiting Newton, 27-14, in a rain-filled Little Illini Conference contest.

OPH falls to Red Hill, 59-14

| September 26, 2022

One play into Saturday afternoon’s game, Oblong-Palestine-Hutsonville’s football team seemed poised to put the game’s first points on the board. However, four plays later, OPH was turning the ball over on downs and two plays after that, visiting Red Hill hit a big play from their own end zone that went for a touchdown and completely swung the momentum the other way and OPH never fully recovered. Although OPH did score on their next possession, Red Hill ripped off the next 46 points in a row, sending OPH to a 59-14 defeat.
