The 1987 Shrikes

The 1987 Shrikes

On this day 27 years ago, the football team withstood a furious push from Lutheran to pull out a narrow victory.

Clinging to a 7-6 lead, the Shrikes used a courageous goal line stand in the waning moments of the game to hang on for the win against a much larger opponent. The team had just three players that weighed in at over 150 pounds, yet had enough toughness to repel Lutheran when it mattered most.
