Bulldogs clinch HCC championship

BROWNSBURG — In a game the Brownsburg players and fans will remember for a very long time, the Bulldogs seized the outright Hoosier Crossroads Conference title and started 8-0 for the first time since 1994. And they did so in some of the most adverse weather conditions for a football game as rain fell heavily throughout the entirety, making it difficult to accomplish anything field.

But Brownsburg (8-0) made the most of a powerful rushing attack to take control early on and seal a 14-0 victory over visiting Zionsville (6-2).

“This hasn’t sunk in yet,” Brownsburg coach Brett Comer said. “I am very proud of our kids, the way they played tonight and the way they’ve played all season by taking it game by game.”

The conditions affected every facet of the game, none more than the two signal callers.

Brownsburg quarterback Ian Good handled the ball on every snap and did not turn the ball over once, alertly picking up a couple of loose balls on the ground before Zionsville defenders could settle on top of them.

“It was nasty,” Good said smiling with spots of mud on his face. “I was worried about getting the snap every time. Ball security was what we were focused on the entire game.”

Brownsburg scored on its second drive of the game after both teams had punted to open the contest. A second Zionsville punt from deep in its own territory gave Brownsburg excellent field position on the Eagles’ 35.

Six plays later, Chase Dutra started left and reversed his direction, scoring on a 14-yard run for a 7-0 lead.

In the second quarter, Brownsburg put together an 11-play, 63-yard drive, fueled by a 38-yard run by Toks Akinribade that culminated with Good scoring on a sneak for a 14-0 lead.

Brownsburg’s defense also deserved a ton of credit as they held Zionsville to 99 yards of offense on the evening.
