High school football: Blackhawks rally from 20 down, but fall in 1A title game
CHAMPAIGN – It looked like all the good work Maroa-Forsyth put into the first half of its 48-24 Class 1A state football championship victory against Stockton on Friday would go for naught at Memorial Stadium.
The Trojans had built a 20-0 lead at halftime behind two rushing touchdowns from quarterback Jack Hockaday. Stockton, though, had other ideas, and as quickly as the momentum switched from the Trojans (13-1) to the Blackhawks after halftime, it swung back Maroa's way in the fourth quarter and the Trojans poured it on to win their second state title in 7 years.
After halftime, the Blackhawks (13-1) quickly forced a three-and-out from Maroa, then went 54 yards in 10 plays to cut the lead to 20-8. Another quick three-and-out and the Blackhawks had the ball back again. Nine plays later and the score was 20-16.
