WAKEFIELD – Wakefield used a monumental performance from junior, Justin Erb and a relentless rushing attack to ground the Norfolk Lutheran High Northeast Eagles here at Eaton Field in the Trojan’s homecoming game.

Some teams have a stable of running backs.

Battle Creek has that, but the Braves also have a stable of linemen, and that combination propelled 3-1 Battle Creek — Class C2’s 10th-ranked team — to a decisive 30-0 win over Class C1 O’Neill (now 1-3).

Norfolk Catholic rallied from a 12-0 deficit to pull within 18-17 before halftime, and nearly got the go-ahead touchdown before Class C No. 2 Bancroft-Rosalie/Lyons-Decatur responded with back-to-back scores.
