BUTLER â€” More than just water rained on Eastsideâ€™s football field Friday night.
Churubusco reigned over the Northeast Corner Conference foes, winning 54-0, and remaining undefeated after four games.
In the last 96 minutes of play, the Eagles have not only had the lead against their opponents, but havenâ€™t allowed a single point to make the scoreboard.
After a strong 42-0 win last week over Prairie Heights last week, Churubusco outdid itself against Eastside, scoring eight touchdowns, despite the rainy weather.
The Eagles host Angola next week.
NORTH MANCHESTER â€” Friday night was a soaking, muddy scuffle for Whitkoâ€™s football team as it fought hard against the Manchester Squires, falling just short of a victory with a final score of 13-10.
It was a somber moment, as the clock ran out and the boys sat in their half crescent around Head Coach Swender. â€śBoys,â€ť he said, â€śwe have two choices: We can go down, or come Monday, we can go back up.â€ť
Next week, the Wildcats take on the Wabash Apaches in their homecoming game.
COLUMBIA CITY â€” The rain came early in Friday nightâ€™s Columbia City home football game against Northeast Hoosier Conference foe Homestead, and with them came a flood of Eagle offensive woes.
With leading rusher Adam Neely on the sidelines in a cast, the Eagles were victimized for seven interceptions and had extreme difficulty finishing drives against the Spartans. The end result was a 41-6 loss for the Eagles.
On a wet night, Columbia City finished the contest with eight turnovers, and it was the first of those turnovers that helped give the Spartans the early lead.
