Safety Chase Dutra caught a ball thrown right at him and returned it for 24 yards, setting up a Toks Akinribade touchdown. Akinribade’s 1-yard run put Brownsburg up 10-0 with three minutes left in the first half.
Caleb Cooley stepped in front of another poorly thrown ball on the next drive. After a Good incompletion, he promptly kept the ball on a triple option and ran 53 yards and Brownsburg led 17-0 at halftime.
“Those were uncharacteristic turnovers by Fishers,” Comer said. “We sputtered early, I can’t say that we came out hot, because we didn’t and I thought we were in for a dogfight.”
Shipman remained Good’s favorite receiver in the second half. The two connected on a 55-yard touchdown pass, which Shipman pulled down with one hand, stretching the lead to 24.
“He’s got speed, he’s got hands and I can rely on him to catch it,” Good said.
Shipman finished with four catches for 96 yards and a score. Good completed 7 of12 passes for 105 yards with one touchdown pass and another rushing.
Akinribade rushed for 82 yards and two touchdowns, including the final score, a 24-yard dash.
Brownsburg drew HCC foe Zionsville for its opening game in sectional play at home next Friday. The Bulldogs defeated the Eagles 14-0 last week en route to clinching their HCC Championship.
“We don’t like our draw . . . playing an HCC team, not an easy way to go,” Comer said. “But we’re going to show up and play no matter what.”
