Week 9 football previews

Tri-Central, Sheridan to play for HHC title.


“Defensively they’re very aggressive, play hard, play fast. They’ve got some good athletes on that football team.”

Bo Baker leads Kokomo in rushing with 1,089 yards. Kokomo also got effective running last week from Jeron Gray in his first game of action, and fullback Jordan Holloman.

Richmond leads the NCC at 4-1 and can take the outright title with a victory over Logansport tonight. Huntington North (4-2) has completed league play. Kokomo and Muncie Central follow at 3-2, hoping for Logansport to pull an upset tonight and open the door for a potential crowd at the top.

Kokomo will have next week off as the state tournament begins. Play in Class 5A begins Nov. 1. The other five classes begin next week.

EASTERN (2-6, 1-5 MIC) AT N’WESTERN (5-3, 3-3 MIC)

Both squads enter the week coming off of victories, as the Comets snapped a five-game skid with a 57-26 win at Taylor and the Purple Tigers got back on the winning track after back-to-back losses with a 37-18 triumph at Peru.

Northwestern coach John Hendryx is 6-0 against Eastern since becoming the Purple Tigers’ head coach in 2007. The Comets’ last victory in the series came in 2005.

TAYLOR (0-8, 0-6) AT MACONAQUAH (5-3, 4-2)

The Braves are looking to reach the six-win plateau for the first time since 2004 when they welcome the winless Titans to Bunker Hill.

Maconaquah, which is led by the area’s leading rusher in junior Cody Hicks (1,301 yards and 17 TDs on 171 carries), has won three straight in the series.

The Titans are looking to snap a 24-game losing streak and avoid a second straight winless regular season.


Hamilton Heights (6-2, 5-1 MIC) visits Peru (4-4, 2-4) looking to ensure itself of at least a share of the MIC title.

In Hoosier Conference action, 2A No. 8 Tipton (5-3, 2-3) visits Delphi (4-4, 1-4). In non-conference action, Clinton Central (1-7) visits Monrovia (3-5) and Carroll (4-4) visits North White (5-3). The Cougars will turn around and visit the Vikings again next week in the start of sectional play.

TONIGHT'S SCHEDULE All games start at 7 p.m. • Kokomo at Anderson • Cass at Western • Tri-Central at Sheridan • Eastern at Northwestern • Taylor at Maconaquah • Hamilton Heights at Peru • Tipton at Delphi • Carroll at North White • Clinton Central at Monrovia
