PREP FOOTBALL: Falcons claim share of NECC

CHURUBUSCO — CHURUBUSCO — Churubusco hadn’t lost an NECC game in 23 tries.

Then Fairfield came to town Friday night.

A punishing run game mixed with opportunistic plays were enough for the Falcons to ground the Eagles, 35-14.

With the win, Fairfield clinched a piece of the NECC title. ‘Busco and Lakeland will play next week and the winner of that game will share the conference crown with the Falcons.

For Fairfield coach Bob Miller, it came down to an effective game plan and execution.

“We wanted  to rush the ball effectively, score points and play well defensively,” Miller said.

Indeed, the Falcons gave up just one offensive score all night and put up 35 points on a team that was No. 3 defensively in the state and had given up just 26 points in the first seven games of the season.

Cameron Kitson got Fairfield on the board early in the first quarter with a 10-yard touchdown run.

‘Busco responded but a failed PAT left the Eagles trailing 7-6.

Lucas Miller’s 1-yard touchdown dive on fourth down and another PAT put Fairfield up 14-6.

Then it was Kitson once again on a 27-yard scamper to put the Falcons up 21-6 with 2:57 left in the half.

After a 49-yard-run, the Eagles fumbled the ball over to Fairfield.

The Falcons quickly responded as Kitson busted open an 87-yard touchdown run with 1:24 left in the half.

A ‘Busco pick-six moved the score to 28-14, but the Fairfield defense was done giving up points for the evening.

Quarterback Kyle Mast capped things off for the Falcons with a keeper that pushed the Falcons’ lead to 35-14.

Fairfield was the last NECC team to beat ‘Busco, handing the Eagles their only conference and regular season loss, 52-38 in 2010. After that ‘Busco ripped off its 23 games conference streak.

Fairfield finishes 7-1 in the NECC and closes out the regular season out of conference at home against Culver Academy.

Wawasee 28, Elkhart Memorial 20

Brandin McCulloch had 225 yards on 38 carries with a TD to help lead the Warriors (4-4 overall, 3-3 NLC) to a conference win at home Friday night.

Junior quarterback Gage Reinhard had a pair of TD passes for the Warriors.

Poll

There has been discussion at West Goshen Elementary School to require mandatory student uniforms in the future. How do you feel about the prospect of mandatory student uniforms in a public school environment?

I think it’s an excellent idea that is way overdue
I think it’s a bad idea and would be restrictive for students and parents.
