HONORABLE MENTION

Culver Academy (5-1): Alejandro Septien connected on seven extra-points for the Eagles in a 61-0 victory at Heritage.

Warsaw (3-3): Josh West’s five-yard romp into the end zone lifted the Tigers to a 21-0 triumph over Goshen.

WORK IN PROGRESS

Clay (0-6): Daijohn Hill’s 98-yard return for a score was one of the few bright spots for the Colonials against Adams.

Saint Joseph (2-4): Despite 82 yards rushing and a touchdown from Ashton Ruszkowski, the Indians were guilty of 72 yards in penalties against Penn.

Triton (4-2): Delano Shumpert’s 42-yard touchdown reception in the Trojans’ 62-8 loss at Pioneer is the first score the Panthers have allowed this season.

Wawasee (1-5): Jacob Hand had a 65-yard punt return for a score, but that was all the Warriors could muster against Plymouth.
