ST. CHARLES -- The University City High football team played perhaps its best game under head coach Carl Reed Wednesday, as the Lions walloped top-seeded St. Charles West, 42-0, to advance to the MSHSAA Class 4 District 5 championship game on Monday.
The Lions will play Clayton, which defeated Gateway Tech on Wednesday, to advance to Monday's district title game as well.
Senior running back David Carmichael had a huge night for the Lions, scoring four first-half touchdowns, and later a fifth in the second half, to lift U. City to its upset victory.
St. Charles West also committed four turnovers—all in the first half—to further help U. City's cause.
