Elwood upsets No. 5 Eastbrook

MARION, In. — The Elwood Panthers made some history in a 34-6 win at Eastbrook on Friday. With the win, Elwood stayed unbeaten in league play.

First it was Elwood’s first win against the perennial Central Indiana Conference favorite sine a 22-6 victory in September of 2000.

For Eastbrook, it was the Class of 2013’s first home loss in their four years at Eastbrook.

The Elwood defense held the Eastbrook offense to just 181 yards of total offense, 127 on the ground and 44 through the air.

Quarterback Austin Dauenhauer threw just five passes on the night. He completed four passes, three of them for touchdowns.

Sammy Mireles — the state’s fourth-leading rusher — went over the 1,000-yard mark for the season with a 306-yard performance on 37 carries and one touchdown.

The junior running back now gained 1,086 yards this season. He had 780 yards on entering the Week 5 match up at Eastrbook.

Elwood (3-2 and 3-0 CIC) will host Mississinewa. The Indians improved to 5-0 overall and 3-0 in the CIC after a 55-14 win over Blackford Friday night.

Huntington North 62, Anderson 49

HUNTINGTON — Jalin Beard rushed for 118 yards on just five carries, but the Indians couldn’t keep pace with the host Vikings.

Huntington North led just 34-29 at the half, but the game turned in the third quarter.

Quarterback Drew Schnitz threw touchdown passes of 25 and 11 yards, and the Vikings (2-3, 2-1 in the North Central Conference) kept Anderson off the scoreboard for the entire period.

Indians senior Curtis Wilson threw five touchdown passes, including three in the fourth quarter, and Jerian Beard ran for 80 yards and two scores. But Anderson (1-4, 1-2) couldn’t slow down Schnitz.

The Vikings’ QB threw for 365 yards and nine touchdowns and added 186 yards rushing for a mind-boggling 551 yards of total offense.

The Indians host New Castle next Friday for homecoming.
