NorthWood (5-3): Nic Bontrager’s 38-yard return of a fumble for a touchdown was not enough for the No. 7 (Class 4A) Panthers’ in a 31-28 loss at Warsaw.

WORK IN PROGRESS

Bremen (4-3): Evan Manges caught a 31-yard scoring pass, but the Lions wasted a 13-0 cushion against Jimtown.

Culver (5-3): Lance Keller’s 80-yard kickoff return for a touchdown was one of the lone bright spots for the Cavaliers in a 55-7 loss to No. 1 (Class 1A) Pioneer.

Elkhart Memorial (1-7): Nolan Grose accounted for the Chargers’ lone score against Wawasee with a 74-yard scamper.
