Goshen (1-9): Daveyon Sandford’s fumble recovery and interception against Elkhart Central couldn’t prevent the RedHawks from suffering their ninth straight setback.

Knox (7-4): Dawson Patrick’s 46-yard interception return for a touchdown is all the Redskins could muster against Marian.

New Prairie (7-4): Chase Ketterer’s 289 yards rushing with four scores and 61 yards passing was not enough as the Cougars were guilty of three turnovers against Saint Joseph.

Northridge (5-6): Logan Hooley was limited to just three yards rushing in the Raiders’ 34-0 loss at No. 5 (Class 4A) Angola.

Riley (6-5): Senator Brown tossed for 206 yards and a touchdown for the Wildcats, but was also guilty of three interceptions against Mishawaka.
