Braves top Bengals in Miami County clash

Hicks makes it 3 straight 200-yard games.

(Continued)

“We fumbled the ball here after converting on a fourth-down play, and we missed a field goal that was close. There was other opportunities, but both teams played hard, and they put everything out there that they could,” Peru coach Bob Prescott said. “We didn’t make enough plays to win, and they did. We knew that they had great athleticism, speed and size. Our kids came at it, and gave it their best shot with everything they had. We didn’t execute flawlessly enough to win the game.”

Maconaquah’s final score came on a seven-yard run by Hicks for his third TD of the night with 1:38 left in the game. The touchdown was set up by a great acrobatic catch by Walton on a 28-yard pass from Dinn to give the Braves a first down.

Hicks led Maconaquah with 220 rushing yards on 28 carries and three touchdowns — his third straight 200-yard game and the fourth of his career. He also had a 200-yard game against Peru last year.

Walton had four receptions for 42 yards and one touchdown, and Dinn was 11 of 14 passing with one interception and one touchdown.

McBride led Peru with 31 carries for 192 yards and a TD.

This week, Maconaquah visits Cass, and Peru hosts Northwestern.

WHITKO 49, N. MIAMI 35

North Miami enjoyed its highest scoring game of the season, but came up on the short end of a 49-35 decision against visiting Whitko in Three Rivers Conference play. Whitko is the league leader at 5-0.

The Warriors have scored 56 points over their last two games after scoring just 39 points over their first five games.

Next up for the Warriors (1-6, 1-4 TRC) is a game at Tippecanoe Valley on Friday.
