Rebounding from a week two loss to Carlinville, the Vandals shut down Roxana’s offense and forced five turnovers en route to a 35-0 victory, on homecoming.
In the opening minutes, it was Vandalia’s defense that was doing the scoring. Just six plays into the game, defensive back Cory Bunker intercepted a Roxana pass around midfield. Bunker was able to cut and weave his way to a touchdown, putting Vandalia up 7-0 after the point after-attempt.
After a failed punt by Roxana several drives later, Vandalia took over in Shells' territory with a short field.
