HUNTERTOWN â€” With University of Notre Dame scouts in the stands, the Carroll Chargers used the visiting Columbia City Eagle football squad as a backdrop for an offensive showcase, handing the Eagles a 56-0 Northeast Hoosier Conference beating.
â€śThey (Carroll) played with great intensity,â€ť said Columbia City Head Coach Randy Hudgins, â€śAnd we did not match that intensity.â€ť
The Chargers took the opening kickoff and marched 75 yards in eight plays.
Junior running back Justin Tranquill took the ball in for the score from 11 yards out with 9:36 left in the first quarter.
SOUTH WHITLEY â€” Whitko may have lost an outright win of the Three Rivers Conference after falling to Rochester Friday night.
The Wildcats were the lone team without a TRC loss, but dropped a 26-9 game to the Zebras, who posted a four-touchdown second half.
The only scenario that Whitko could earn the title outright is if the â€™Cats beat Tippecanoe Valley (5-3) next week, and if Rochester falls to 1-7 North Miami. Rochester is 6-2 overall and 5-1 in the TRC.
Whitko came out with a strong start against the Zebras Friday, holding a 9-0 lead going into the second half.
CHURUBUSCO â€” With a share of a conference championship still in play, Churubuscoâ€™s football team has one week left in the regular season to bounce back from its first loss.
The Class 2A third-ranked Eagles fell to visiting Fairfield Friday, 35-14. While the win snapped an undefeated season for â€™Busco, it did not shake the hopes of a shared Northeast Corner Conference championship.
