McCutcheon no match for Zionsville in home opener

Zionsville — For the second week in a row the opening drive of the football game set the tone for Zionsville, and the Eagles are now 2-0 in the Hoosier Crossroads Conference as a result.

Zionsville marched 77 yards in eight plays for an early scored and never looked back in a 31-7 win over visiting McCutcheon.

“Some of our defensive effort might have come from them losing their quarterback,” Zionsville coach Larry Mcwhorter said. “Any time you face the number two things change. Tonight we prepared for a

style we ended up not seeing most of the night.”

McCutcheon starter Matt Marencik left the game with an undisclosed injury after starting hot by completing 6 of 8 passes for 38 yards, and the Zionsville defense was able to keep the Mavericks off the

scoreboard until a 31-0 lead had been built as a result.

The Mavs did not score until 6:27 remained in the game, and most of the 200 yards gained by McCutcheon came well after the contest was decided.

“The defense really helps our offense get into a flow,” said McWhorter. “For the second week in a row we had a really good first drive. Defensively, we prepared for one style and didn’t get it and next week against Noblesville we’ll likely see yet another different style.”

Steven Wisnewski got the scoring started with a one yard touchdown run to make it 7-0 after one quarter.
