CHURUBUSCO â€” With a share of a conference championship still in play, Churubuscoâ€™s football team has one week left in the regular season to bounce back from its first loss.
The Class 2A third-ranked Eagles fell to visiting Fairfield Friday, 35-14. While the win snapped an undefeated season for â€™Busco, it did not shake the hopes of a shared Northeast Corner Conference championship.
â€śWe still have a shot at the conference title, thatâ€™s the silver lining in the whole thing,â€ť said Churubusco Head Football Coach Paul Sade. â€śWe can still win football games and still challenge for a conference title.â€ť
Churubusco is now 7-1 for the year and 6-1 in the NECC. Fairfield finishes with a 7-1 mark in the NECC.
Fridayâ€™s loss was the first in NECC play for the Eagles since 2010. It was Fairfield who beat â€™Busco that year as well.
