Trojans face huge showdown

TC football takes on Sheridan at Lucas Oil with HHC title at stake.


Kokomo has beaten Anderson seven straight times. The Kats own a 38-17-2 lead in the all-time series.

Western (4-4, 4-2 MIC) at Cass (7-1, 5-1 MIC)

From 2002-09, Cass had Western’s number, beating the Panthers seven straight times. The Panthers followed with wins in 2010 and last year. The Panthers lead the all-time series 25-21.

Tonight, the Panthers visit the Class 2A No. 7-ranked Kings for a clash of upper-division Mid-Indiana Conference teams.

Cass is on a roll, having won four straight and having outscored its opponents 219-12 during the streak.

Western had a three-game happy streak snapped last week when it fell to MIC leader Hamilton Heights 33-0.

Heights handed Cass its only loss, 45-7 back in Week 4.

NW (6-2, 4-2 MIC) at Eastern (1-7, 1-5 MIC)

Northwestern and Eastern will meet on the gridiron for the 51st time tonight. To the winner goes the all-time series lead. It’s tied 25-25 going into tonight.

The Tigers have won six straight in the series, but the last three games between the teams have been close, decided by a total of 21 points. Last year, Northwestern beat Eastern 34-28 in a game that had a share of the MIC championship on the line.

Mac (2-6, 2-4 MIC) at Taylor (0-8. 0-6 MIC)

Following three straight 2-8 seasons, Maconaquah has a chance for win No. 3 of 2012 when it visits Taylor tonight. The Braves have not won three or more games in a season since a 4-6 finish in 2006.

Taylor, meanwhile, is looking to avoid its first winless regular season since 2003.

Maconaquah has beaten Taylor two straight times. The Braves own a 25-11 lead in the all-time series.

Around the area

Also in the MIC, Class 3A No. 4 Hamilton Heights (7-1, 6-0) will look to wrap up an undefeated league title when it hosts Peru (3-5, 2-4).

In the Hoosier Conference, Class 2A No. 4 Tipton (7-1, 4-1) hosts Delphi (3-5, 0-5). Class A No. 1 Lafayette Catholic leads the league with a 5-0 record and can take the title outright with a victory over West Lafayette (4-1). If WL wins, it would share the title with Catholic and open the door for Tipton to grab a share, too.

In non-conference games, Carroll (4-4) hosts North White (4-4), and Clinton Central (2-6) hosts Monrovia (3-5).

It was easy to tell as a red rash covered her arms and her face was painfully swollen. She is one of those people who loves being outdoors yet highly allergic to the common plant. Sometimes I believe she can get the rash by simply looking at the noxious weed.
