Antioch puts up record 72, shuts out Round Lake
There were points enough to go around for nearly everyone on the Antioch football team on Saturday.
Starters scored. Reserves scored. The wealth was spread.
Antioch tied a school record with its eye-popping 72 points scored against Round Lake and set a school record for largest margin of victory in the 72-0 win.
The game began on Friday at Round Lake, but was postponed due to inclement weather and was resumed Saturday morning at Antioch because Round Lake's natural field was a mud-pit after Friday.
Antioch was up 16-0 when play was called on Friday night with 10:48 left in the second quarter.
The Sequoits, with first-and-15 on Round Lake's 16-yard line when play resumed on Saturday, scored in the first four seconds to go up 23-0.
Over the next 10 minutes, that lead kept growing and growing and Antioch was up 51-0 by halftime and had already started to sub out starters.
"In a game like this, you want to see your guys execute and you don't want to see any letdowns and our guys were really good about that," Antioch coach Brian Glashagel said. "Then, we had kids who don't usually get a lot of playing time having success and making plays and scoring for us. That's always neat. It's fun for them to have that kind of success. And it was good for us to get our starters off the field so that we can continue to stay healthy as we head into the playoffs."
Antioch remains the only undefeated team in Lake County at 7-0 and 5-0 in the Northern Lake County Conference. Round Lake drops to 1-6 overall and 0-5 in the NLCC.
Antioch quarterback Athan Kaliakmanis completed 6-of-9 passes for more than 130 yards and 5 touchdowns. Receiver Zach Grindley hauled in two of those touchdown passes.
