Western, TC to play for conference titles

Western and Tri-Central will play for conference football championships Friday night as the regular season draws to a close.

Western and Hamilton Heights are tied atop the Mid-Indiana Conference standings following the Panthers’ 35-14 takedown of the Huskies last week. Western (7-1 overall, 5-1 MIC) hosts Lewis Cass (5-3, 4-2) Friday in the rivals’ annual Week 9 clash. Hamilton Heights (6-2, 5-1) visits Peru (4-4, 2-4).
