FB 200x200 SPORTS

Friday night opened the 2016 IHSAA Football regular season. Doug and Johnathon were at Cloverdale High School as the Clovers took on the South Putnam Eagles. The Eagles came away with the 26-8 victory after Cloverdale took a second quarter lead 8-0.

The  Eagles responded on that touchdown with Aiden LeBlanc returning the ensuing kickoff 83 yards for the touchdown. Kyle Shaffer ran for 145 yards on the night to lead all rushers and had three touchdowns.

The North Putnam Cougars beat the Cascade Cadets 20-13 after having a 14-0 lead early. The Cadets cut it to one after missing an extra point, but the Cougars scored late to cap the night off.

Greencastle got their opening win of the season over Crawfordsville 27-20. They had a 14-0 lead before Crawfordsville cut it to 21-20. A late fourth down stop on their own five yard line helped give the Tiger Cubs the ball back to end the game.
