Rivalry games tend to go one of two ways.

They can either be high-scoring shootouts or a low-scoring, grind-it-out type of contest.

Friday night's annual Shrine Game was the latter, with rivals Oblong and Palestine-Hutsonville going toe-to-toe for four quarters.

But, when the dust settled, the Panthers came away with the victory again, as the picked up a 15-6 win in Palestine.

"This was a defensive battle," OHS head coach Chad Pusey said. "It was well played on both sides. It wasn't easy, but we got it done. A win is a win and I'll take it."

"The kids played hard, we just had too many mistakes," PHS-HHS head coach Joe Stambaugh said. "It was two evenly-matched teams out there. We got max effort from our kids, but it just wasn't enough with all the mistakes."

Maroons beat Casey-Westfield, 33-20
Although it has become by necessity, a youth movement has taken over Robinson High School's football team and it is starting to bear results.

Led by a host of underclassmen, the Maroons charged their way to victory for the first time Friday night (Sept. 15), running over Casey-Westfield for a 33-20 victory in the Little Illini Conference contest.

"I am real happy for these young men," RHS head coach Tim Nolen said. "They deserved a victory. They have worked very hard and overcome a ton of adversity. We said before the game that one of these teams had to come out and be the aggressor and we did that."

Robinson High School's volleyball team was involved in yet another three-set match Thursday (Sept. 14), but unfortunately could not come out on top this time.

Lady Statesmen remain winless with straight-set loss to Lake Land
The play was better, but it still was not quite good enough to get Lincoln Trail College's volleyball team in the win column.

The Lady Statesmen stayed right with visiting Lake Land College for most of their match Wednesday (Sept. 13), but ultimately came out on the short end, falling in three sets, 19-25, 24-26, 17-25.

"There were several positives in this game," LTC head coach Dana Goodwin said. "Our serving was better with 15 aces and our blocking was definitely better with 14 stuff blocks. Our hitting the first two sets was great with 27 kills, but the last set was problematic for us."

Lady Tigers beat Casey-Westfield in two
Getting back on track was the goal and that's exactly what Hutsonville-Palestine's volleyball team did Tuesday night (Sept. 12).

The Lady Tigers rebounded from a disappointing loss at Robinson Monday with a sweep of Casey-Westfield, 25-19, 25-18, in their non-conference contest.

"The girls played good," HHS-PHS head coach Shandy Matthews said. "They kept working and didn't quit, which is key when the ball gets out of control. They are still serving above 85% as a team, which is great. We just need to work on passing the ball to the setter so we don't run them to death and get our hitters set up where they need to be to put the ball down."
