Pioneer's running game prevails against Caston; Winamac rolls at South Newton.

(Continued)

Gabe Welch added 91 yards rushing on 15 carries for the Kings. Brenden McGehee had touchdown runs of 3 and 6 yards in the first quarter.

Heights (3-1, 2-0) scored 14 answered points in the second quarter to take a 28-14 lead at halftime before holding on in the second half.

Grant Weatherford showed why he’s a high Division-I prospect, as the junior wideout finished with six catches for 183 yards and two TDs to lead the Huskies. Conner Faulkner had 164 yards rushing and a TD on 27 carries. Monte Reed was 14-of-21 passing for 292 yards and three TDs.

Pioneer 66, Caston 28

The two rivals locked up in Fulton and provided plenty of fireworks for the fans, racking up over 900 combined yards from scrimmage. After an initial surge from the Comets’ new fast-paced, wide-open offense, the Panthers’ running game took over in the second half and led them to a 62-28 win.

Fullback Justin Mersch finished a big night with 254 yards on 28 carries and three touchdowns to lead the Panthers (2-2, 2-1 Midwest Conference).

J.P. Smith opened the game with a 73-yard run for a score for Pioneer. He and Tyler Hanna later scored TDs in the fourth quarter. Quarterback Sam Kiser had two rushing TDs and added an interception on defense.

Pioneer outgained Caston 501-398 in total yardage including 471-238 on the ground.

Quentin Douglass was 16-of-36 passing for 162 yards and three TDs for the Comets (1-3, 1-2). He added 89 yards rushing on 21 attempts.

Brandon Piotrowski, Daron Weaver and Dustin Offenberger each had TD catches. Offenberger finished with three catches for 76 yards, and Brayton Jellison had eight catches for 41 yards. Jake Kingery had a 67-yard TD run, and Piotrowski added 76 yards from scrimmage.

Winamac 59, S. Newton 6

The Warriors showed just why they’re ranked No. 1 in Class A in this week’s coaches’ poll, as they blasted South Newton 59-6 on the road. Ranked No. 3 in the AP poll, the Warriors moved to 4-0 and 2-0 in the Midwest Conference.
