The Indian Creek Braves won the WIC Championship Friday night by the score of 32-28 over the visiting Northview Knights. The game got off to a rocky start for the Braves, giving up two quick scores and trailing 14-0 after the first quarter. Not to be outdone the Creek offense battled back to put up 18 points in the second quarter as the defense stiffened and created an 18-14 lead at the half. The offense came out in the second half as hot as they were in the second quarter scoring the first drive of the half on a 78 yard TD run by Connor Fruits. The teams traded touchdowns in the third quarter and Northview added an additional score later in the fourth quarter. The Braves sealed the championship with an impressive 7 minute drive to cap off the game and the regular season.
The Creek will travel to West Vigo on Friday to open up IHSAA Sectional play. Kick-off is slated for 7:30pm.
