Winchester 39, Union County 8
Thanks to performances from quarterback Austin Lawrence and wide receiver Elias Gates, Winchester earned the Tri-Eastern Conference victory. Lawrence and Gates connected for a 49-yard touchdown in the first quarter, before hooking up again for a 25-yard score just minutes later.
As the game moved into the second quarter, Kiante Enis caught a 28-yard touchdown from Lawrence, extending the Falcons lead. Lawrence finished the day going 6-of-8 for 226 yards and five touchdowns with no interceptions.
“The game was obviously played in some pretty poor conditions, so being able to throw for 226 yards and five touchdowns, it’s really impressive,” said Falcon coach Mike Jones.
In the second half, Cullen Hall caught a 13-yard touchdown from Lawrence before Enis took off for a 40-yard touchdown run. Gates then capped the scoring for Winchester by hauling in a 53-yard touchdown, the fifth of the day for Lawrence.
Shelbyville 42, New Castle 7

Nate Woolard led the Trojans defensively with seven tackles and three assists.
New Castle (1-3) travels to Yorktown next Friday.
