CHURUBUSCO â€” While many teams are settling in to the 2012 season, learning what works for this yearâ€™s team â€” and what doesnâ€™t â€” one thing hasnâ€™t changed for Churubusco. When the Eagles take the field, theyâ€™re going to win.
In fact, out of the last 36 regular season games â€™Busco has played, the Eagles have only lost three â€” just one on their home field.
