  • 12 photos
  • MERRILLVILLE | Matt DeSomer turned the ball over three times on Times No. 1 Andrean's first three drives Friday at Father Eckert Stadium. That led to 14 West Side points before DeSomer and the 59ers answered with 36 unanswered points en route to a 65-28 win over the Cougars. The senior quarterback finished with 222 total yards and three touchdowns, despite only playing one series in the second half. The Cougars (0-3) marched 78 yards on the opening drive in a little under two minutes with no huddles. Berrie Wesby punched it in from three yards out. After a failed conversion attempt, West Side led 6-0. DeSomer's turned the ball over twice more on the next two drives, and the Cougars cashed in the second time. Ramone Atkins hit JonVea' Johnson with a 55-yard touchdown pass. After the conversion, West Side was in control 14-0. DeSomer came right back, though, with a 48-yard scoring run of his own. Andrean (3-0), ranked No. 1 in the 3A state coaches poll, forced a three and out and then took it right back down the field with a several runs right up the gut. Cameron Bosak had 27 yards on three carries on the drive, including the seven-yard touchdown that --after the point after-- tied the game at 14-14.

LAKE CENTRAL VS E.C. CENTRAL FOOTBALL BY JOHN SMIERCIAK

  • 7 photos
  • ST. JOHN | Lake Central’s offense has generated plenty of highlight film against E.C. Central in recent years. It was the defense’s turn Saturday night as the Indians formed a brick wall that made moving the ball a near impossibility for the Times No. 8 Cardinals. Gelen Robinson registered three sacks and K.J. Singleton returned an interception 15 yards for touchdown as Lake Central pulled away late for a 24-0 victory at the Burial Grounds. "We needed to come out and make plays,” Singleton said. “I saw the ball coming, and I knew it was my chance to make something happen.” Neither offense was particularly sharp moving the ball in the first half as the teams combined for 11 possessions and just two scores before halftime. Lake Central junior running back Brandon Scott ripped off a 35-yard touchdown run midway through the first quarter, but big plays were few and far between for the Indians (1-1). “Our offense isn’t ready for the Duneland conference yet,” Lake Central coach Brett St. Germain said. “Our guys need to know that. It becomes a different game next week.” Colin Studer made his first career start at quarterback in place of injured starter Alec Olund. Studer accounted for 101 total yards, including three straight first-down runs in the second.

LAKE CENTRAL AND E.C. CENTRAL BLOWN AWAY FOOTBALL GAME CANCELED BY JOHN SMIERCIAK

  • 8 photos
  • ST. JOHN | The Lake Central and E.C. Central coaches and administration waited until the last minute to postpone Friday's game to 7 p.m. Saturday. Officials had hoped to start the game no later than 9 p.m., which means they'd need to take the field no later than 8:30 p.m. Friday. But the lightning wouldn't stop. "We have to decide what is a safe time to start, and we have to wait until the last lightning strike," Lake Central athletic director Tony Bartelemeo said. "We didn't want the kids to be out that late. We're in a good spot, because we didn't take a snap, yet." Lake Central will run its typical Friday routine on Saturday, coach Brett St. Germain said. "We'll make sure the kids go home and get rest and treat Saturday like we would a Friday," St. Germain said. "That does help that we'll have extra time on (Labor Day) Monday. We can turn that into a Saturday-Monday day, so that we technically don't lose a day." Saturdays are different in East Chicago. "We have kids that work Saturdays," Cardinals coach Stacy Adams said. "That's a big problem for us, because the weekend is usually the only time they can get in work. We also have an issue of transportation. Our athletic department has been great and booked all of our transportation months in advance. Now we have to find a way to get here (Saturday)."

WHITING VS CLARK FOOTBALL BY JOHN SMIERCIAK

  • WHITING | Breaking in the new field turf took some time, but Whiting finally got the ball rolling in the “Battle of 119th Street” on Saturday night. The Oilers scored four second-half touchdowns and rolled up nearly 400 yards of total offense in a 31-6 win over Clark at Ray P. Gallivan Field. The game capped off a ceremonious night for Whiting that included a field dedication and a reunion of the 1993 sectional championship team. “I’m living the dream,” Whiting coach Jeff Cain said. “This was maybe the longest day of my life, but it was worth it.” AJ Veloz threw for 216 yards and a pair of touchdowns while star running back Ethan Young accounted for a rushing touchdown and 174 yards of total offense. It took some time for the Whiting offense to get going, especially since the Oilers didn’t get the ball until 33 minutes after the game started. Clark received the opening kickoff and was driving down the field when junior running back Maurice Dawkins suffered a left elbow injury that delayed the game for nearly 15 minutes. “As soon as I saw the injury I told the guys to sit tight because it was going to take a while,” Cain said. “We were still on defense and we had to make a couple more plays before we got the ball. That’s no excuse.”

MUNSTER VS LAKE CENTRAL IN FOOTBALL BY JOHN SMIERCIAK

  • MUNSTER | When Leroy Marsh won his 200th football game as a head coach, he did so with a stout defense and a quarterback in his first year in the program. Marsh and Munster beat Lake Central 27-9 in the opening week of the 2013 season Friday, and the success started in October 2012. "This was started by the team that played Merrillville," Marsh told his players, "those seniors started it, and you're continuing it." Munster lost to Merrillville 28-21 on Oct. 19, 2012 in the first round of the sectional, then hit the weight room. Junior Seth Gutwein scored two of Munster's touchdowns, the first on a 5-yard run to give the Mustangs a 7-0 lead and the second on a 92-yard kickoff return after Lake Central pulled within five points at 14-9. "Joey Jumonville did a great job for us at quarterback and has a real solid focus," Marsh said. "Our whole defense was successful for us tonight." The rest of his offense he turned over to senior Jumonville, who was playing football for the first time since his freshman year at St. Rita. After Jumonville committed to take his baseball talents to Northern Illinois, he decided to spend his season with his friends on the football team instead of at fall baseball games.
