Frankton, Lapel suspended until Saturday

LAPEL, Ind. — Lapel junior quarterback Brady Cherry was lighting up the scoreboard Friday night before Mother Nature lit up the sky, suspending the Bulldogs’ annual rivalry game with the Frankton Eagles with nine minutes left in the third quarter.

The game will resume Saturday at noon at Lapel. The Bulldogs will restart the game with possession of the ball and a 38-20 lead over the Eagles.

One needs only to look at Cherry’s stat line to see how Lapel built its 18-point margin. Having not yet registered an official play in the second half, Cherry is 13-of-20 for 298 yards and four touchdowns. This includes TD passes of 15 yards to Joe Hart, 52 yards to Bailey Partington, 63 yards to Hart and 65 yards to Austin Schilke. Cherry also has 83 yards and two touchdowns on the ground, including a 50-yard scoring run on the Bulldogs’ opening drive.

The junior, playing his first year of high school football, was a holding penalty away from adding his seventh touchdown of the night on a 15-yard pass to Partington when the first flash of lightning caught the referee’s eye.

Frankton was able to match Lapel’s opening drive with a touchdown of its own, scoring on a 3-yard run by Nik Clark, who leads the Eagles in rushing with 73 yards. The extra point gave Frankton a 7-6 lead with five minutes left in a first quarter that took almost an hour to play. But three quick Lapel touchdowns, one following an onside kick, put the Eagles in the hole 24-7 by the end of the first.

Frankton finally got back on the board early in the second quarter. Quarterback Brayden Ginder tossed a 58-yard bomb to freshman Jack Rogers just a minute and 15 seconds into the second. The Eagles trailed 24-13.

Lapel immediately regained their margin on the 63-yard TD by Hart, who led all receivers with 114 yards. The Eagles answered with a 30-yard touchdown toss from Ginder to Rogers. But Cherry’s 65-yard pass Schilke, who had 100 receiving yards, put the Bulldogs up 38-20 at halftime.

Ginder was 7-of-11 for 132 yards, two touchdowns and one interception.
