NEW MIDDLETOWN, Ohio (WKBN) – Springfield will attempt to hand St. Thomas Aquinas their first setback since September 5 (to Warren JFK, 37-7).

The Knights have been victorious in five consecutive games which included their last matchup on Saturday against Trinity (42-26). The win was highlighted by senior Asian Burt’s 74-yard touchdown run in the third quarter.

Last year, Aquinas advanced into the Regional Semifinal round where they were topped by Lucas – the eventual Division VII State Finalist.

The Tigers have won 26 of their past 27 games dating back to September 2018. Last Saturday, Springfield defeated Western Reserve (35-7). Beau Brungard completed 13 of 18 passes for 158 yards and two scores in their win over the Blue Devils.
