Springfield falls to defending champs

The Springfield Millers football team played in their first playoff game since 2015 last Friday. Unfortunately for the No. 10 Millers, they drew the defending champs in the first round in No. 7 Silverton. Springfield fought valiantly, but the defending champs prevailed and Silverton won 42-18.

On a rainy and windy night in Silverton, the problems started early for the Millers. Just 90 seconds into the game a snap miscue allowed Silverton’s Diego Flores to jump on the ball in the endzone, giving the Foxes a 7-0 lead before their offense even took the . . .
