While Vincennes Lincoln’s football team was stunning host Jasper 35-34 in overtime on Friday night in a battle of unbeatens, previously undefeated Mount Carmel lost a nonconference game 40-32 to Breese (Illinois) Mater Dei.
The Alices, 3-0 in the Big Eight, will play at Mount Carmel (3-1 overall, 2-0 Big Eight) on Oct. 10. Jasper, ranked No. 5 in Class 4A, is 4-1, 1-1.
Vincennes Lincoln coach Jon Heiden wasn’t about to label the Alices the league favorite.
“Jasper and Mount Carmel are always the teams to beat,” Heiden said. “I wouldn’t put us at that level. We still have a long way to go.”
