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.
Culver Academies hosted the return of a royal alum, His Royal Highness Crown Prince Alexander II of Yugoslavia, who attended the school during
BREMEN â€” The first outright Northern State Conference championship since 1995, the first undefeated regular season since 1990. What more could Bremen want?
Well for starters, theyâ€™ll take a repeat sectional title.
The unbeaten, undisputed NSC champion No. 4-ranked Lions (11-0) take on Lewis Cass (5-6) for the Class 2A, Sectional 26 crown at home at Don Bunge Field Friday at 7:30 p.m.
CULVER â€” Sure, last weekâ€™s reprisal win over West Central was a big one, but the Cavaliers didnâ€™t spend long relishing it.
Not with this weekâ€™s sectional championship match-up against No. 8 South Newton looming.
Itâ€™s back to business as Culver Community (7-4) hosts the Rebels (10-1) for the Class A Sectional 33 crown Friday at 7 p.m.

NORTH MANCHESTER â€” Plymouth High School graduate and former PHS No. 1 singles player Kara Gilley was named to the 2011 All-Heartland Collegiate Athletic Conference team.

Also making the all-conference squad for Manchester are NorthWood alumna Alli Heeter and April Erxleben of Bellmont.

A Culver area resident was on hand at the Oct. 25 meeting of Culverâ€™s town council to defend photos he had made available throughout the community pertinent to the controversial proposed wind farm in Marshall and Fulton Counties, a project the council was once more asked to take a formal postion upon.

PLYMOUTH â€”Traffic lights at the Walmart/Kmart intersection went into operation Wednesday.
The hope is that the lights will smooth out traffic flow in the especially hectic area. The lights have only traditional red, green, or yellow signals, no green turning arrowsâ€”although arrows could be added at a later date if necessary.
Oak Drive construction engineer Gary Fox, of Cripe Architects and Engineers in Indianapolis, said that the rest of the project is â€śalmost complete.â€ť
