For the sixth time in seven seasons, Eastside stands atop the Northeast Corner Conference's Small Division, knocking off Central Noble 42-7 on Friday in Albion.
Wade Miller hauled in two touchdown passes from Laban Davis for Eastside (7-1, 3-0 NECC), which won its 15th NECC title in football, tying West Noble for most in conference history.
Sawyer Yoder's 85-yard touchdown pass to Ashton Smith late in the third quarter accounted for the lone Cougars (4-4, 2-1) score.

HOMESTEAD 42, WAYNE 12: At Wayne Stadium, the Spartans moved one step away from securing their second consecutive SAC championship. Chad Zolman won his 143rd game as coach at Homestead (7-1, 7-1), becoming the school's winningest coach, on a night where Evan Ormsby threw five TD passes.
Wayne coach Sherwood Haydock was reportedly ejected in the first half while arguing a call with an official. The Generals, who saw Caldijuan Mitchell record 1.5 sacks and two tackles for loss, stand 1-7 overall and in SAC play.

BLUFFTON 64, PRAIRIE HEIGHTS 13: In Bluffton, the Tigers had little trouble in knocking off the visiting Panthers. With COVID-19 restrictions preventing Heritage and Adams Central from playing, Bluffton (7-1) agreed Thursday to play Prairie Heights.
SOUTH ADAMS 61, WOODLAN 6: In Berne, the Starfires won their second straight Allen County Athletic Conference championship, advancing their conference win streak to 12 games.

ANGOLA 42, GARRETT 7: In Garrett, Tucker Hasselman scored on runs of 1, 80, 7 and 43 yards as the Hornets earned a runner-up spot in the Northeast Corner Conference's Big Division. Angola (5-1, 3-1 NECC) has allowed just seven points the past two weeks, as Kolin Cope's 14-yard scamper accounted for the lone points for Garrett (2-5, 2-2).
CHURUBUSCO 29, WEST NOBLE 6: In Ligonier, the Eagles avenged a 13-point home loss from a year ago thanks to a pair of Wyatt Marks rushing TDs. Cullen Blake returned an interception for a score for Churubusco (4-2), while Kolby Knox's pick-six accounted for the lone points for West Noble (0-8).
NORTHWOOD 22, WARSAW 21: In Nappanee, the host Panthers postponed the Tigers' quest to claim a share of the Northern Lakes Conference championship for the first time since 2001. Warsaw (6-2, 5-1 NLC) can still claim a league title with a win against Concord.
