But even with a season-high 379 rushing yards, Danville still needed a couple big plays from its senior combination of Sherfield and Collier in the passing game. That duo connected three times for 58 yards including a pair of scoring strikes of 24 and 10 yards in the second quarter.
"It was a last game and it was good for our seniors to go out with a win,'' said Collier, flashing the big smile that he displayed every Friday night. "It also gives our younger guys something to build on for next year.''
Collier's second touchdown reception on the final play of the first half might have been the biggest play of the contest. With just three seconds left until halftime. Luke decided against a 27-yard field goal and his senior pass-catch combination made him look like a genius.
"We were going back-and-forth and I just knew we had to make play,'' Collier said. "Trent and I talked it over about what the defense was doing and we made a play to get through it.
"Coach asked me what the guy was doing on defense. I let him know and we set that play up perfectly.''
The touchdown right before halftime gave the Vikings a 20-18 lead.
Urbana's Alex Beckman, who was 22-of-57 passing for 264 yards, came back to give the Tigers a 24-20 lead in the third quarter, but the Danville defense turned up the pressure in the final 18 minutes.
Beckman was just 1-of-14 after his final touchdown pass to Jeffrey Trask Jr. with 5:46 left in the third quarter.
"We are not used to seeing someone throw the ball on every play,'' said Luke, as Urbana called 66 passes out of 90 offensive plays. "I thought our kids did a really good job, especially in the second, of getting some heat on him.''
