Salukis Shock Illinois State


By WSIL Sports

NORMAL-- Behind four interceptions from their defense, a blocked punt, and a breakout game from sophomore linebacker Tyler Williamson, SIU's defense shuts out Illinois State 17-0.

The Salukis took a 10-0 lead into halftime, thanks to Anthony Thompson's scoop and score in the first. Austin Johnson added a 33 yard field goal, and SIU's offense finally broke a ten-quarter scoreless streak in the fourth, with a touchdown run by Mika'il McCall.

Dawgs improve to (2-1) in the MVFC and hand Illinois State their first loss of the season. It was a particularly rough day for Marion product and Redbird quarterback Matt Brown.
