CULVER â€” The snow was falling in flurries in the second half, but it was Culver's two turnovers in the first half that ultimately made the difference.
Culver's opening drive stalled at the South Central 12 in the first quarter, and the Cavaliers coughed up a fumble and an interception inside their own territory for a pair of Satellite touchdowns within a 2-minute span of the second quarter en route to a 20-7 Sectional 33 championship victory at Culver Friday.
"It's hard to win a championship turning the ball over," said Culver head football coach Andy Thomas. "We had opportunities on the first drive and couldn't capitalize. You've got to get scores. You can't win with no points. And then to be down inside the 10-yard line and turn it over, you can't do that and win a championship."
