Tri-Central defeats E. Hancock in Class A final

INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — Cody Howell threw a touchdown pass and ran for a score to help Tri-Central defeat Eastern Hancock 20-10, giving the Trojans their first Class A state football final.

Howell threw two early interceptions, but he made several critical plays to make up for them during Friday’s game at Lucas Oil Stadium. Howell finished with 167 yards passing for Tri-Central (14-1), which won in its first finals appearance. Garrett Kelley added 78 yards and a touchdown for the Trojans.

Spencer Gilbert carried 28 times for 145 yards and a touchdown for Eastern (14-1).

Eastern defeated Tri-Central 47-35 in the season opener for both teams on Aug. 23. Eastern averaged 56 points per game this season and had not scored fewer than 29 points in a game all season.

Warren Central edges Carmel to claim 6A title

INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — Jayson West continues to find ways to win.

The Warren Central head coach watched his team’s offense get stopped possession after possession on Saturday, the Warriors unable to find a groove. They were saved when quarterback Jeff George connected with Zachary Gegner on an 18-yard pass for the go-ahead score with 18 seconds left in the third quarter.

Mykelti Williams picked off Carmel quarterback Isaac James with 3:12 remaining in the fourth, giving the Warriors a 7-6 victory in the Indiana Class 6A state championship game.

West is now the first coach to win back-to-back state titles with two separate schools. Last season, West coached the Class 5A state champion Lawrence Central Bears.
