FORT WAYNE, Ind. (WANE) – In one of the more surprising outcomes of week two, Garrett was upended at home Friday night be DeKalb, falling to the Barons 26-20. DeKalb’s offense was held without a point until the 4th quarter, when with the Barons trailing 13-6, Harrison Price connected with Will Chrismon on a game-tying touchdown. On the Railroaders ensuing drive, Bryit Sumer fumbled the ball away, leading to another Price to Chrismon connection to help put the Barons in front for good. DeKalb is now 2-0 for the first time since 2003, while Garrett falls to 1-1.
Lakeland meanwhile is now 0-2 after the Lakers were hammered at New Haven 48-8. The Bulldogs Nishawn James had a pair of rushing touchdowns in the first quarter, as Lakeland never really got going on either side of the ball. The same can be said for Fairfield, who had similarly tough night with a NorthWood team that rolled to a 46-0 win. Angola also followed the trend of big week two losses in the NECC, as the Hornets came up empty against a fired up Leo team that cruised to a 38-0 win on the road. West Noble suffered its first loss of the season, a 48-6 final at Wawasee.
Things weren’t much better for the NECC small schools with only Eastside managing a 26-7 win over Adams Central. Carter Sharp and Connor Dove both ran in touchdowns in the third quarter to help the Blazers erase a 12-point deficit on the way to their first win of the season.
A young Churubusco team couldn’t get the ground game going on the road against Lewis Cass as the Eagles were clipped 16-7. Fremont had it’s hands full with Southern Wells as the Raiders rolled by a 49-7 final. Similarly, Central Noble’s offense was kept quite in a 14-0 shutout loss to LaVille. Prairie Heights fell to 0-2 on the season following a lopsided 40-6 loss at home to Woodlan.
