Wawasee 31, West Noble 0
Break up the band, Wawasee is on a roll.
The Warriors posted its second shutout in as many weeks, and the first time since 1986 the team has pulled off the feat. Wawasee hasn’t won back-to-back games since 2017, and hasn’t started 2-0 since the team went 3-0 to start the 2016 season.
Wawasee got there on Parker Young’s arm and another stout defensive effort. Young was just 7-10 passing, but had 164 yards through the air and three touchdowns. The first was to Kam Salazar for 30 yards, then after running one in from a yard out, found Jacob Meek for 41 yards and Adam Beer for 40 yards.
Caleb Clevenger added a 36-yard field goal and four extra points.
The Warrior defense held the Chargers to just 126 total yards on 51 total plays and came up with four interceptions and two fumble recoveries. Dominic Blair added a sack while Robert Schmucker and Nathan Larson combined for 13 tackles.
Wawasee (2-0) will begin Northern Lakes Conference play next week in hosting Northridge.
Tippecanoe Valley 18, Northfield 10
Valley itself broke some streaks in winning at Northfield for the first time since 2013.
Alex Craft had a pair of touchdown runs (4, 22) to push Valley to a 12-0 lead after a quarter. After Northfield pulled three points back, Branson McBrier found Jamasyn Virgil for a 13-yard scoring pass to give itself some breathing room.
Northfield would score with 4:11 to go, but that would be all the scoreboard would see as Valley evened its record at 1-1 on the campaign.
Valley rushed for 268 yards and passed for 43 more. Craft ran the ball 18 times for 146 yards and Virgil added 100 yards on just six carries.
The Vikings stay in Three Rivers Conference play in hosting Peru next Friday.
