    MITCHELL—A few years ago Mitchell was a pass-happy football team. But now under first-year coach Todd Pritchett the Bluejackets are primarily a running team.
    Perry Central Coach Greg Gibson, whose team will visit the 3-5 Bluejackets Friday at 6:30 p.m., said they are mainly a power-running team. “They line up in a double-tight wing-T and run powers and dives.”
    Gibson said they passed only six times against Providence despite getting behind and losing 20-0.

    But Tell City shut the Patriots out for the last 59:28 of the game.
    Despite the Patriots’ early scoring, Tell City goalie Whitaker Lyons made six nice saves in the first half.

    Buntin, a freshman who moved up from the JV five matches ago to fill in for injured Kelsey Gowers in the back row, “has stepped in and played really well for us back there,” said Hayes.
    Emma Kohnert led Tell City with 14 kills and two official blocks (ones that hit the floor).
