SC football falls hard to Boone
South Central fell to 0-3 in football Friday with a 53-0 loss to unbeaten Boone Grove in Valparaiso. Brae’Ton ran for 192 yards and five touchdowns on just 13 carries and also caught a 15-yard scoring pass from Jake Mayersky, who also rushed for 90 yards and a score. “We just have to get better at the basics,” Satellites coach Buzz Schoff said. “We have to tackle better and we have to block better. A team like Boone takes advantage of every mistake and when you continually miss tackles and don’t finish blocks, they score 53 points in a hurry.” SC hosts Wheeler (1-2) on Friday. “We’re pretty defeated,” Schoff said. “(Being outscored) 131-46 will do that, but we’ll keep pushing forward.”
