Bremen students cheer on the BHS football team during its sectional championship game with Lewis Cass at home at Don Bunge Field Friday.
BREMEN â€”Â The Bremen High football team was in good hands with Ben Hueni Friday night.
Hueni had seven catches for 109 yards and one score, helping No. 5 Bremen cruise to a 28-6 win over Lewis Cass in the Class 2A Sectional 26 championship game at a chilly Don Bunge Field.
Three touchdowns on their first three possessions helped the Lions (12-0) seize command and earn their second consecutive sectional championship. Next up for Bremen is the regional final at No. 6 Wheeler (12-0), a 48-6 winner over North Newton Nov. 11.
CULVER â€” Championships are often awarded to the team that makes the fewest mistakes.
A bad punt snap turned into a big-play South Newton touchdown to give the visitors some breathing room in the third quarter, and Culver Community gave up three turnovers, including a game-sealing interception inside the South Newton 5-yard line with 14.5 seconds on the game clock in a down-to-the-wire 27-21 Sectional 33 championship loss to the No. 8 Rebels at home at Cavalier Field Friday.
