LAKEVILLE â A voice blared from the Bremen sideline in the second quarter.
âBraxston, put your head down and make them pay!â
On his next carry, Bremen running back Braxston Miller lowered his head and punished two LaVille defenders.
âBraxston,â the same voice shouted, âthatâs the way to run the football!â
And pretty much the way the entire Lions squad, which scored during its first eight possessions, bowled over LaVille in a 54-13 Northern State Conference road win at Lancer Field Friday.
BOURBON â When trying to beat a team youâve lost to 12 straight times by an average of 33 points, mistakes must be minimal.
Unfortunately for Triton, errors which have plagued the Trojans this season occurred with disappointing frequency Friday night.
Four turnovers and untimely penalties nixed Tritonâs bid to beat New Prairie for the first time since 1997, as the Trojans were handed a 13-6 homecoming defeat.
âWe played hard, but it was the same old story, unfortunately,â Triton coach Rodney Younis said. âTurnovers. We have got to eliminate the turnovers.â
Culverâs program-record winning streak came to an end Friday as Knox put up a pair of touchdowns in the fourth quarter to break a 14-all halftime tie and grab a 28-14 Northern State Conference home win over the Class A, sixth-ranked Cavaliers.
The Cavs had trouble limiting the big play as two of Knoxâs scores came on a 46-yard pass and a 46-yard run.
CULVER â The Eagles ended John Glennâs shutout streak, but it was too little, too late as the Falcons claimed a 49-12 victory at Culver Academies Friday.
Glenn scored two touchdowns in all but the fourth quarter, and the Falcons defensive unit held CMA to just 45 total net offensive yards in the first half, shutting out the home team for three quarters â its sixth such performance in six games this year âÂ before a Juwan Brescacin touchdown catch and a Pierre Byrne 5-yard run in the fourth quarter concluded a streak of 15 scoreless quarters by Glenn opponents.
PLYMOUTH â Itâs been a while â two years to be exact.
Wawaseeâs Warriors put an end to a remarkable streak for Plymouthâs Rockies Friday night with a 27-17 win at Plymouth. The last team to beat Plymouth in a regular-season game was NorthWood in the final game of the 2007 season. The last time the Rockies lost at home was to Rochester, in the second game of that same season.
It appeared that maybe the Rockies would be on their way to a third straight thrilling come-from-behind win, with Brock Smith playing Superman, but it was not to be.
