    LEOPOLD—Containing Forest Park’s running game will be Perry Central’s top priority when they meet in football Friday at 6:30 p.m.
    “They like to run the ball,” said Perry Central Coach Greg Gibson. But Gibson Southern, ranked No. 2 in the state in Class 3A, shut the Rangers out last week by being quick to the ball on defense.
    The Commodores may not be quite as quick as Gibson Southern, but “I was pleased with our pursuit Friday night,” Gibson said Monday.

    LINCOLN CITY—With a young team beset by injuries, Heritage Hills went 2-8 in football last year.
    But the Patriots, who will host Tell City Friday at 7 p.m., have more experience and better health so far this year, so they look more like a traditional Heritage Hills team.
    “They’re a really solid ballclub,” Tell City Coach Ronnie Robinson said Monday.
    They have not used the traditional Heritage Hills wishbone offense so far but instead have used mostly a pro set.

    Nicole Harris added five kills and Kelsey Marshall made one kill and one dig.
