ROCHELLE — The Rochelle Township High School freshmen football team ended its season with a win and improved to 4-5 after shutting DeKalb out 29-0 Monday evening.

“Our defense was at its best of the season,” said Rochelle head coach Vic Worthington. “We stopped them on fourth down three times in the red zone.”

The defense also forced one turnover and had three sacks courtesy of Riley Williams, who brought down the Barbs’ quarterback all three times. The defense also blocked one punt and forced a safety on the Barb offense.

On offense, many kids contributed to the 29-0 shutout.

DeKalb got the ball first and moved down the field quickly, but the Hubs stopped the Barbs on downs on their own 19-yard line. Rochelle marched back down the field for the only score of the first half on a 16-play drive culminated by a touchdown run and two-point conversion by Matt Albers.
