GARRETT â€” After 13 years, the wait is over.
With 341 all-purpose yards and four touchdowns from junior Braxton Miller, Bremen won its first sectional championship since 1997 with a 35-21 victory over Garrett Friday night.
â€śWhat an outstanding night for Bremen football, our community, the kids, coaching staff, everybody,â€ť Bremen coach Bob Holmes said. â€śTo win a sectional championship and to be 9-3 after going 3-9 last year, it shows how hard these kids have worked.â€ť
Miller had 33 carries for 289 yards and one catch for 52 yards, for an average of 10 yards every time he touched the ball.
MERRILLVILLE â€” Andrean's Mason Zurek set the tone from the get-go and John Glenn never recovered.
Zurek hustled 76 yards to the end zone on the first play from scrimmage as the 59ers ran away with a 56-14 win over the Falcons in the Class 3A Sectional 17 championship battle Friday at Eckert Stadium.
Andrean, which collected its fourth straight sectional title, amassed more than 400 total yards â€”Â 374 on the ground â€”Â and notched three rushing touchdowns apiece from Zurek and Demetri Blanco. Blanco also threw a 51-yard scoring pass to Christian Hood.
CULVER â€” The snow was falling in flurries in the second half, but it was Culver's two turnovers in the first half that ultimately made the difference.
Culver's opening drive stalled at the South Central 12 in the first quarter, and the Cavaliers coughed up a fumble and an interception inside their own territory for a pair of Satellite touchdowns within a 2-minute span of the second quarter en route to a 20-7 Sectional 33 championship victory at Culver Friday.
