A steady diet of Connor Reece and Broc Berus mixed with a smothering defense was too much for Huntsville during Shiloh Christian's 44-7 victory at Eagle Stadium.

Neither played a snap in the second half thanks to a 41-0 halftime lead and a running clock through the second half due to the Arkansas Activities Association's sportsmanship rule.

Reece, the Saints' third-year starting quarter, completed 22 of 33 passes for 381 yards and four touchdowns in the first half alone. The senior also added a six-yard touchdown run.

Berus rushed for a touchdown and caught a touchdown pass in the first half. The … Continue Reading ››
