Predictions for first round of sectionals

Believe it or not, postseason is here. Feel free to make your predictions. Surely, Four Horseman isn’t the only other prognosticator out there!

OWEN VALLEY (5-4) at REITZ (6-3), 7 p.m. Friday
This is the lone first-round sectional matchup involving a SIAC team on Friday that has two teams with above .500 records, but it still shouldn’t be close. Reitz should win handily.

Prediction: Reitz 28, Owen Valley 14

SEYMOUR (0-9) at CENTRAL (6-3), 6 p.m. Friday
Central has scored 394 points, but given up 333. There is no way Seymour can hang with the high-scoring Bears.

Prediction: Central 42, Seymour 21

JASPER (8-1) at HARRISON (1-7), 6:30 p.m.
The Warriors are hoping a major upset, and hoping perhaps Jasper will be looking past them toward a probable second-round showdown at home against Central.

Prediction: Jasper 45, Harrison 24

BOSSE (5-4) at PIKE CENTRAL (1-8), 6:30 p.m.
The Bulldogs posted their first regular season winning record since 2000 and aren’t about to stop now.

Prediction: Bosse 49, Pike Central 21

MEMORIAL (2-7) at HERITAGE HILLS (2-7), 7 p.m.
The Tigers didn’t have a good regular season, but expect them to advance to a probable second-round showdown with unbeaten Gibson Southern.

Prediction: Memorial 28, Heritage Hills 21

FOREST PARK (2-7) vs. MATER DEI (9-0), 6:30 p.m. Friday at Enlow
The Wildcats should be up 42-0 by halftime, then Mike Goebel will take it easy on the outmanned Rangers.

Prediction: Mater Dei 56, Forest Park 14

Last week: 4-0
Overall: 36-7.

Thanks for reading.

  1. Looks like I forgot a game….
    Bye Week vs. North at New Vida Robinson Memorial Stadium
    The Fighting Szabo’s get to play the always tough Bye Week. This is a game that will come down to who has the most grit and determination. As we all have seen, the Szabo’s started out strong, but have since fallen completely apart. I have heard rumblings of a movement afoot to remove Szabo and replace him. I am here to out this movement. They are known as, “The Friends of Fonzi,” and they are recruiting any and all members who are against so called Daddy Ball. They hope that by removing the Szabo staff that they can start over next year and have another subpar player move in with his daddy coach and be handed the job.
