PIASA - The Vandalia football team earned an automatic playoff bid on Saturday, earning its sixth win of the season with a 36-14 victory at Southwestern.
Big plays highlighed the Vandals' offensive day, as senior Ryan Ambuehl had a season-long 83-yard touchdown run in the first quarter after he dropped the snap on a punt.
Senior Tim Ritchey then dashed 59 yards for a second-quarter touchdown, and added a 14-yard score minutes later to help Vandalia post a 19-0 halftime lead. Southwestern gained just 27 first-half yards against the Vandal defense.
