Ninth-ranked Eagles to take on Lions

October 31, 2013

CHURUBUSCO — Churubusco’s football team will likely have a more difficult path to a victory in this week’s sectional semifinal.

One week after scoring a 28-13 home win against Eastside, the Eagles have to hit the road to play Class 2A 14th-ranked Bremen.

The Lions defeated Manchester 49-21 in their sectional quarterfinal game last week.

Churubusco ended the 2013 regular season ranked ninth.

For both teams, it will be a unique showdown. ’Busco enters 8-2, and Bremen 7-3, but both schools are undefeated against Class 2A competition.

Conferences produce mixed sectional results

October 31, 2013

NORTHEAST INDIANA — Postseason play in football is often used as a measuring stick.

The subject of the measuring is how different high school football conferences stack up as far as quality is concerned.

Since most conferences have very few games played out of the league, such assessing is difficult until sectionals start.

While by no means perfect, postseason play and performance is used as a gauge.

Here is a glance at how area conferences performed during week one of sectional action.
