Stroup leads M-G's rout of Eagles

FAIRMOUNT, Ind. — Madison-Grant was more than geared up for its homecoming game against Frankton on Friday as Luke Stroup danced his way into the end zone six times during a 66-13 romp over the Eagles.

Stroup took consecutive carries to the house from 69 and 18 yards, and the Argylls (2-2, 1-2 Central Indiana Conference) held a 13-0 lead just over two minutes into the first quarter. Jarrett Simon caught a 30-yard touchdown pass for Frankton (1-4, 0-3 CIC) before Stroup toted the ball in from 3 yards out for his third touchdown of the first quarter.

Anthony Standridge got his first shot at returning punts for Madison-Grant and made quite an impression. He finished off the first quarter by returning a punt 55 yards for another score.

Frankton found itself on the wrong end of a 26-7 score.

Stroup had 150 yards rushing on six carries in the first quarter behind good blocking up front and fancy footwork. He finished with 229 yards rushing on 19 carries to go along with his six touchdowns.

The Argylls weren’t a one-headed horse as they rushed for 572 yards as a team behind Cam Myers’s 129 yards and two touchdowns coupled with Austin Purkey’s 126 yards on seven carries. They also got 28 yards and a score from reserve Jacob Lutterman.

Frankton’s only other score came from Nik Clark’s 27-yard touchdown catch from Ginder with 2.4 seconds left before the half.

Although Stroup is a freshman, he spoke of his successful night like a seasoned veteran.

“It was great, I couldn’t ask more of my guys. They were awesome,” he said. “We worked all week in practice -- we had a great week of practice. They just did great up front.”

Madison-Grant coach Craig Barr said his kids wanted to break two school records as the game went on. One was seven touchdowns in a game, and the other was to score 69 points in a game.
