Hearts JV blast Paris

PARIS — Peyton Bushue and Brandon Loy scored touchdowns on defense, and the Effingham junior varsity football team had little trouble improving to 5-0 with a 33-0 victory Monday at Paris.

Bushue stripped the ball from a Paris running back, then returned it 35 yards to the end zone to help the Hearts to a 15-0 lead at halftime. Loy’s touchdown came on a second-half interception return.

Zach Miller had 87 rushing yards on just six carries, and scored twice. Quarterback Kevin Daugherty threw a 49-yard touchdown pass to Bushue for the Hearts’ other touchdown.

The Hearts had 285 yards of offense, including 170 rushing yards.

Andy Lustig led the Hearts with 12 tackles, and Trent Barnhart had a fumble recovery.

The Hearts will look to go 6-0 when they host Mattoon on Monday.

  • Vonderheid.jpg Vonderheide, W/SS win at Charleston 12-0

    Christian Vonderheide had the luxury of choosing which was better.
    It was either the grand slam, or a complete game shutout thrown by the right hander.
    “They are both pretty equal,” Vonderheide said. “Pitching is more of my thing. The grand slam I got lucky. I swung hard, and I was lucky enough for it to go over the fence."
    The win could be more important as Windsor/Stew-Stras pounded a 12-0 win over Charleston at CHS Field.

  • czachorskimug.jpg Czachorski: Time to catch Cup fever

    I woke up early Friday morning and did something I never do these days -- I flipped on SportsCenter.
    It was the top of the 7 a.m. hour, and unshockingly, ESPN led with discussion of the playoffs.
    What left me flabbergasted was they were leading with the NHL playoffs, as I was truly unaware ESPN remembered that hockey was a sport.

    His first three hits were no doubters, but Blayke Cutts’ fourth hit on Thursday was a high bouncer over the glove of Olney third baseman Peyton Billington to win in a walk-off.

  • McNamee.jpg McNamee: Questions about EIU's Jimmy G

    The typical phrase used in situations like this, I think, is: “He shows potential.” I may not have believed anything I was saying, but at least he was in line to be a four-year starter; at least, he had that.
