FALCONS DOWN EAGLES
September 16, 2012Tri-Eastern Conference
MUNCIE, IND. — Winchester’s football turnaround continues.
The Falcons, 1-9 a year ago, are now 3-1 in the Tri-Eastern Conference after they knocked off Lincoln during Saturday’s TEC day at Ball State’s Scheumann Stadium.
Quarterback Drew Croyle put the Falcons in the driver’s seat on offense, then helped keep them there on defense with a critical interception TD return that made the final 35-20 score.
Croyle threw for two touchdowns and 202 yards as he guided the productive — and balanced — Winchester offense.
“Drew’s best ballgame. There wasn’t any question,” said first-year Winchester coach Mike Jones. “He played really well defensively, then offensively, obviously, a really good football player.”
Croyle’s pick six came with the Falcons holding a 28-20 lead and Lincoln on the move. The Winchester senior stepped up and grabbed the pass, then returned it 68 yards for a touchdown.
Teammates Dustin Norris and Angel Rascon combined for three more interceptions after that, sealing the win and helping the Falcons rise to 3-2 overall. They had five interceptions overall.
