August 31, 2012

CHURUBUSCO — While many teams are settling in to the 2012 season, learning what works for this year’s team — and what doesn’t — one thing hasn’t changed for Churubusco. When the Eagles take the field, they’re going to win.

In fact, out of the last 36 regular season games ’Busco has played, the Eagles have only lost three — just one on their home field.
Friday night’s contest against Prairie Heights was no different, as Churubusco’s offense racked up 42 points, and the defense held the Panthers scoreless.
