Streich strikes as Panthers win at Annandale

In what will likely be known for years as “The Carsen Streich Game,” the Glencoe-Silver Lake football team remained in the catbird seat for a top seed in the upcoming Section 2AAA Tournament with a 35-31 win at Annandale on Friday, Oct. 13.
Streich, the Panthers’ starting running back, galloped for 235 rushing yards and all five GSL touchdowns in the come-from-behind victory.
With the help of a heaping helping of superior offensive line play and blocking, Streich ran for long scores of 61, 48 and 45 yards to go with endzone runs of 16 and 14 yards as well.
The contest between two teams both seeded in the top-10 of the Class AAA rankings initially broke out as a defensive struggle before exploding in the second half.
Annandale took the initial lead on the opening drive of the game after gaining 75 yards in just over five minutes and snaring a 7-0 edge.
After an interception by defensive back Zach Mohr short-circuited the Cardinals’ second drive and a fumble recovery defensive back Dane Schwirtz ended Annandale’s third drive, GSL put its first points on the board.
