Last week, the varsity football team suffered a tough lost to East Aurora/Holland by a score of 43-16. The Griffs started strong and rolled to a 16-0 lead in the first half.
However, the second half was a nightmare for the team as East Aurora would go on a 43-0 run mostly through the air. Their passing attack was too much for the Springville secondary as they completed several long passes for touchdowns.
Ian Baker led the Springville offense with 181 yards rushing and two touchdowns. The loss knocked the Griffins out of the playoffs for the year. The team will host Depew at home this Friday night in the first round of the Chuck Funke Consolation Bowl series; winner will advance to the finals on Oct. 27.
Admission to the contest will be $5, as per Section VI rules.
