  • PC boys win fourth consecutive sectional

  • Perry County teams get favorable sectional draws

    INDIANAPOLIS—Tell City and Perry Central received about as favorable pairings as they could ask for when the IHSAA made its football sectional drawings Tuesday.

    In Sectional 32, a Class 2A one, Tell City will host winless Crawford County for a first-round game at 7 p.m. Oct. 23.

    Perry Central will visit Springs Valley for a first-round game 6:30 p.m. Oct. 23 in Sectional 40, a Class A one.

  • PC, Paoli in battle of unbeaten teams again

    LEOPOLD—For the second year in a row, Perry Central will face Paoli in a battle of unbeaten teams to decide the PLAC football title.

    And this time the game, set for Friday at 7 p.m. at Perry Central, could live up to the hype.

    Last year Perry Central amassed 383 yards of total offense to Paoli’s 105 and shut out the Rams 28-0.

    But the Rams are a more experienced team this year, as they return “eight or nine starters on offense,” noted Perry Central Coach Mike Spencer.

  • PC routs Blackhawks

    LEOPOLD—Perry Central stopped Springs Valley’s running game and Springs Valley couldn’t stop Perry Central’s running in PLAC football Saturday. The result was a 47-7 win for the Commodores that really wasn’t that close.

    Perry Central jumped to a 28-0 lead in the first 10 minutes.

    The Commodores led 41-0 after T.J. Hall ran 8 yards for a touchdown with 1:49 left in the third quarter.

  • TC opponent has played two ranked teams close

    TELL CITY—Tell City’s next football opponent has probably gained more respect in its last two losses than it did in a 4-1 start.

    The Rangers, in just their second varsity season, were 4-1 after beating Pike Central Sept. 18, but Coach Terry Wagner admits that was the easier part of their schedule. The four teams they beat now have a combined 4-28 record, with two of them still winless.
