SPRINGFIELD OH- The time has come for the Springfield Tigers to focus on returning to the State Championship game. They took their first step on Saturday winning a rematch with Western Reserve 35-7.

The Tigers scored on their very first offensive snap as Bo Snyder took a 60 yard run to the house. This was after a big stop on defense on a Blue Devils 4th and 1 at the 40. Springfield would go on to score in all four of their first half possessions. Beau Brungard ran one in from three yards out, then found Seandelle Gardner for a 25 yard touchdown pass. After recovering an onside kick, Brungard then found Jakob Joyce for a 35 yard touchdown before the end of the half.

The Blue Devils scores their first touchdown of the season against Springfield late in the game when Nicky Cavoulas found Brock Miller for a 68 yard touchdown.

Springfield advances to host St Thomas Aquinas next Saturday at 7:00.
