Culver Community closes at West Central

Culver couldn’t find the stops it needed as Indiana Football Coaches Association Poll No. 8 West Central ground up 392 yards on the ground, and the Cavaliers’ season ended the same way it began — with a loss in Francesville Friday night, 26-7.
West Central advances to the Class A Sectional 33 semifinal opposite Whiting.
The Trojans managed a score in each of the game’s four quarters, while Culver was unable to break into the end zone until Collin Stevens connected with Micah Budzinski on a 29-yard touchdown pass at the 11:31 mark of the fourth quarter to cut the Cavs’ deficit to 20-7.
Stevens went 11-for-23 through the air in his first game back since being sidelined with a separated shoulder in a game against Jimtown back on Sept. 28.
Budzinski caught six passes for 78 yards with a touchdown, and Tucker Schultz made three catches for 20 yards to go along with his 33 rushing yards in 13 carries.
Preston Hansel finished with 16 rushing yards in 12 carries.
Culver struggled to move the ball on the ground with just 42 rushing yards and three fumbles in the season-ending loss.
The Cavs close at 3-7.
