    LEOPOLD—Perry Central will try to stop Mitchell’s power running attack when they meet in PLAC football Friday at 6:30 p.m.
    “They use a straight-T offense most of the time and run mostly off tackle,” said Perry Central Coach Greg Gibson. “They’ll use a full-house backfield in a shotgun formation every now and then and spread it out about one percent of the time.”
    The 5-3 Bluejackets’ backs operate behind a big offensive line.

    The 6-foot-2, 175-pound senior quarterback was also the Rangers’ leading scorer in soccer this season but sat out last Wednesday’s soccer sectional match with Tell City and Friday’s football game with Heritage Hills due to injury.

    DUBOIS—Tell City got a couple of good shots on goal and stopped a bunch of Forest Park shots but still lost 7-0 in the Class A boys soccer sectional semifinals Wednesday.
    Grant Padgett started at goalie for Tell City and made seven saves, including a nice diving one.
