Bulldogs blast Fishers, 31-0

FISHERS — The Brownsburg players raised their helmets high and repeatedly chanted 9-and-0 in their huddle after their final regular season game.

To do so, the Bulldogs spoiled Fishers’ senior night as the Brownsburg football team capitalized on turnovers to win in dominating fashion, 31-0. For just the fifth time in school history, the Bulldogs went undefeated and did so for the first time since 1994.

“Our kids played like they wanted to be 9-0,” Brownsburg coach Brett Comer said. “To get it done in the HCC . . .week in and week out it doesn’t matter who you play or where you play it’s a meat grinder and to be undefeated and to be HCC champions we are very, very proud.”

The top two teams in the Hoosier Crossroads Conference were playing for bragging rights in the final game of the regular season with the Bulldogs having already clinched the conference title. Yet, Brownsburg was not prepared to let up and rest, going for the historic, undefeated season.

“[Coach Comer] made us stay focused,” Brownsburg quarterback Ian Good said. “He told everybody we were going to win it and he wasn’t going to pull us.”

However, with such a lopsided game the Bulldogs’ first team offense and defense got a little break in the fourth quarter.

Fishers’ mistakes started early allowing Brownsburg to build a significant lead. On the first play from scrimmage, the Tigers fumbled, allowing the Bulldogs to recover and set up shop on the Fishers 21-yard line.

Good connected with Haden Shipman for the first time of the night on a 19-yard gain to set up a first-and-goal from the 2-yard line. However, the Bulldogs could not punch it in and settled for a Brandon Dowers 22-yard field goal to take a 3-0 first quarter lead.

Fishers went with backup quarterback Ben Pritchett after their usual starter Connor Christiansen broke his hand the previous week. Pritchett struggled heavily in the first half going 2 of 8 for two yards and two interceptions.
