  • Tell City to face North Posey...

    POSEYVILLE - Tell City will try to stop North Posey's power running game when the two teams meet in PAC football Friday at 7:30 p.m.

    Tell City Coach Don Hitz said the 4-2 Vikings have a strong offensive line and some strong backs, led by 6-foot-1, 225-pound senior Frank Rynkiewich. "He's a big kid with speed."

    The Vikings usually use a power-I offense.

    "They're going to power it at you," said Hitz. "They're just really, really strong offensively and they're quick."

  • Containing Mitchell's...

    MITCHELL - Stopping Mitchell's running game will be Perry Central's first goal when the two meet in PLAC football Friday at 7 p.m.

    The 1-5 Bluejackets have "had some problems with their execution," said Perry Central Coach Mike Spencer Monday. "Their running game at times looks OK, but it's not as consistent as it needs to be. They do have some quick kids, though."

    He said their best runner is their quarterback, Andrew Ritchison, a 5-foot-10, 140-pound senior, who runs frequently on option plays.

    Thomas Isom, a 6-2, 190-pound junior running back, is also quick.

  • Raiders run past Commodores

    LEOPOLD - Southridge rushed for 251 yards as it beat Perry Central 23-6 in reserve football Monday.

    The Raiders built a 15-0 lead before Lucas Bryant scored a Perry Central touchdown on a 3-yard run with 4:00 left in the second quarter.

    The score was still 15-6 when Perry Central made a 45-yard kickoff return to start the third quarter.

    But a fumble at the end of that return gave the ball back to Southridge.

    Tell City finished fifth in the 10-team meet with 122 points, though the Marksmen ran without their No. 1 runner, Alex Fenn, who is expected to be back for the PAC meet and sectional.
