teams sweep BC
For the first time in the history of football at East Washington Middle School, the Musketeers won two games against Brownstown Central.
The seventh-grade Musketeers won 18-8 and East Washington’s eighth-grade team won 26-0.
In the eighth-grade game, the Musketeer defense was too much for the host Braves to over-come.
In addition to the stingy defense, EW got three touchdowns by Oliver Adams and one each by Leif Edlin and Jacob Stewart.
The middle school Musketeers will be back in action this Thursday at home. The seventh-grade team will play Scottsburg, while the eighth-grade squad will take on Clarksville.
