GREG'S PICKS: The IHSAA strikes again

Governing body rules Silver Creek must go to Evansville for sectional semi




• Floyd Central 49, Jennings County 28:
While Jeffersonville is playing for a “sectional” championship, Floyd Central and Jennings County are just beginning tournament play. Three weeks ago, the Highlanders’ offense did whatever it wanted to do against the Panthers in a 54-30 win. The problem is, Jennings scored 30 points and ran all over the Floyd defense in the second half. Did the Panthers figure something out? Maybe. But even if Jennings is able to move the ball, Floyd will simply outscore them.

• Whiteland 35, Franklin 28: For being 7-2, Whiteland has given up a ton of points this year. However, last week’s 28-7 win over Greenwood was awfully impressive. Next week’s Floyd-Whiteland showdown for the “sectional” championship should be a good one.



• Reitz 62, Silver Creek 7:
It really didn’t matter where the game was played, defending champion Reitz was going to dominate. But it’s much worse to have to travel two hours back from a blowout loss. Even so, the Dragons will finish the season with four wins (and some excruciatingly close losses) in their third varsity season. Four victories, including a “sectional” win, is an impressive number for such a young program.

• Jasper 22, Evansville Central 20: It’s a battle of Central’s potent offense against Jasper’s tough defense. It could go either way.



• Charlestown 28, Brown County 7:
A couple of weeks ago, Elwood’s Sammy Mireles became the state’s all-time leading rusher. On Friday, he’ll be the first Indiana running back to go over 8,000 yards. Depending on how Charlestown freshman Antonyo Gaddie is used the next three years, there’s a chance that record may not stand long. Some are predicting a close game between Charlestown and the Eagles, who will finish above .500 for the first time in nearly two decades. Gaddie and the Pirate offense will put up enough points and let the Pirate defense to the rest.

• Brownstown Central 42, North Harrison 13: Brownstown Central has been looking forward to a matchup with Charlestown for a sectional championship since the Pirates beat them 62-10 for last year’s title.
