Battle of unbeatens to take place Saturday in Silver Lake

November 2, 2005

McLouth hopes it can go where Silver Lake went a year ago -- the state title game.

Silver Lake ended its season playing for the Class 3A title against Conway Springs. The Eagles, who finished last season at 10-4, couldn't upset Conway Springs in the title game as the Cardinals capped a 14-0 season with a 28-0 win against Silver Lake.

Both teams are 10-0 on the season, but Silver Lake has played in more pressure games than MHS. While McLouth's closest game was an 18-10 victory against Pleasant Ridge in Easton, Silver Lake has played in three games decided by eight points or less. The Eagles closest game was three weeks ago when Silver Lake defeated arch-rival Rossville, 24-21. Of course, the undefeated Eagles have had plenty of blowouts to their credit. They defeated Pomona, 30-0, Osage City, 48-0, and Oskaloosa, 74-6, in district play, and overall have held three teams scoreless this year.

McLouth, meanwhile, has scored 50 or more points four times and also has three shutouts to its credit.

The teams both 10-0 on the season, will meet at 7 p.m. Saturday in Silver Lake.
