The Shelbyville Rams football team ended their 2017 season in Shelbyville Saturday afternoon.  They were defeated in the semi-final round of the Illinois High School Association football playoffs, by Maroa-Forsyth 25 to 14.


The Rams held their own in the first half, but turnovers proved costly for them in the 2nd half, as the Trojans scored unanswered points as a result.


The game was held in windy and rainy conditions, which caused a lot of fumbles on both sides.


WRAN groovy 97.3 broadcast the Shelbyville playoff games this season.


Maroa-Forsyth plays in the state Class 2-A Football Championship this Friday at 1pm at Northern Illinois University in Dekalb.
