Churubusco wins close NECC game at Angola
ANGOLA â€“ Churubusco football took itâ€™s undefeated record to Angola Friday and came away in better shape, beating the Angola Hornets 37-21 in what was a very back and forth contest.
The Eagles began the game doing what they do best, running the ball. Halfway into the first quarter, Cory Miller took a handoff from 15 yards out to put â€™Busco in the lead, 7-0.
The Eagles next drive began at their own three yard line, a drive which resulted in an 82-yard touchdown run by Jason Nicodemus to end the first quarter, part of his 127 yards in the first half.
Although a mostly uneventful second quarter, Angola quarterback Brady Boots found his brother, Robby Boots, for a three-yard touchdown pass with just under four minutes to go in the half, bringing the score within a touchdown, 14-7.
On the ensuing kickoff, Josh LeFever returned the ball 81 yards to the Hornetsâ€™ four yard line. Two plays later however, LeFever fumbled the ball, giving it back to Angola on their own one yard line.
Wasting little time, Brady hit Austin Bauer for a 31-yard strike and immediately found Robby for a 57 yard gain, taking Angola down to the â€™Busco 12 yard-line.
