For Unionville Friday night, a good ball-control offense was the Indians’ best defense in a 28-7 win against Radnor in the District 1 5A quarterfinals at Prevost Field.
“The key tonight was our ability to run the football,” said Unionville head coach Pat Clark. “Radnor has a really explosive offense, but we kept them off the field, and we finished our drives in the second half.”
Unionville gained 268 yards rushing on 63 carries Friday night, led by junior running back Connor Schilling (30 carries for 174 yards) and senior quarterback Nick Schnaars (21 carries for 83 yards). The Indians picked up 21 first downs, compared to eight for Radnor.
Radnor head coach Tom Ryan said, “We tried everything – we mixed and matched on defense, and I just didn’t have an answer for their run game. Coach Clark does a heck of a job over there – that’s a heck of a football team we just played.”
