Anchorage’s Matt Ilalio continues to make plays for the Sacred Heart University defense.

The sophomore defensive back grabbed his first career interception in today’s 28-19 victory over Bryant during NCAA D1 football action in Rhode Island.

Ilalio, of Service High fame, picked off the pass early in the third quarter.

The 5-foot-9, 205-pounder is one of only three players on the Sacred Heart team to have a sack, tackle for loss and interception this season.

The Pioneers are 5-5 this season.

Ilalio has 20 tackles, 9 solo, in eight appearances.
