    POSEYVILLE—North Posey, which will host Tell City Friday at 7:30 p.m., will be the best football team the Marksmen have faced this season, Tell City Coach Ryan George said Monday.
    The Vikings, ranked No. 5 in the state in the Class 2A AP poll and No. 6 in the coaches’ poll, are 6-0 overall and 5-0 in the PAC as they threaten to run away with the conference title. Their average winning margin is 42-10 and their only close game has been a 34-27 win at Heritage Hills.

    PAOLI—Paoli is 5-1 in football games it has played this year, including 3-0 in the PLAC.
    But because the Rams opted not to play conference foe Crawford County this season, PLAC officials are calling that a conference loss for the Rams.
    Thus Perry Central, 2-0 in the PLAC, can clinch a tie for the conference title with a win in Friday’s 7 p.m. game with Paoli even though the Commodores still have two conference games after that.
