Chippewa Valley's David Ellis looks for running room during the Big Reds' MAC Red Division game against host Eisenhower.
Grosse Pointe South's Brady McCarron (23) opens the scoring against Warren-Mott in the Blue Devils' 38-0 win in a MAC White Division game.
Chippewa Valley did something on Friday night that it hasnât done since 2013: beat MAC Red Division rival Eisenhower.
The visiting Big Reds used their potent offense to their advantage, rolling to a 45-24 football win over the Eagles, improving to 3-0 overall and 1-0 in the MAC Red.
âI thought our kids played really hard,â Chippewa Valley coach Scott Merchant said. âWe were physical on both sides of the ball. We felt like we left some points on the field in the first half, but we came out in the second half and really got after, cleaning up most of our mistakes.â
Chippewa Valley led 17-14 at halftime, scoring on a 9-yard touchdown pass from quarterback Tommy Schuster to David Ellis, followed by a Schuster to Daniel Stout TD pass covering 22 yards. Niko Kepi added a 31-yard field goal.
Eisenhower's scores in the first half came on an 8-yard run by quarterback Blake Rastigue, and a Rastigue to Ian Kennelly 63-yard scoring strike.
"Blakeâs starting to hit the deep ball a little better,â Eisenhower coach Chris Smith said. âHeâs a junior and juniors make junior mistakes. Iâm proud of him and Iâm proud of how our guys played.â
The Big Reds dominated the second half, as Ellis scored on a 2-yard run, before taking a kickoff 89 yards for another score. JaâVon Kimpson scored on a 2-yard run, before Andre Chenault capped the scoring with a 5-yard burst.
âWe had some really good skill kids last year, but weâre a little bit bigger this year,â Merchant said. âWe have three good running backs, and last year we were probably a little bit more receiver heavy. This year weâre a little bit stronger at running back.â
Eisenhower's second-half scores came on a 4-yard scoring run by Rastigue, and a 28-yard field goal by Caleb Oyster.
âChippewa Valley has a good offense and theyâre a good team,â Smith said. âThey made big plays and we didnât. It comes down to that.â
Schuster finished the night by completing 11-of-18 passes for 174 yards. Myren Harris led the ground attack with 88 yards on eight carries, while Chenault added 45 yards on 13 rushes.
âWe have a three-year starter back there at quarterback and he makes everything else a lot eas ier,â Merchant said. âThe last time we beat Ike was in 2013 and weâve had some great games with them. They had our number and itâs nice to get that monkey off our back.â
Eisenhower, which fell to 1-2 overall, 0-1 league, was led by Rastigue, who completed 12-of 24 passes for 225 yards. Oyster led the ground attack with 61 yards on 13 carries.
