Heights wrapped up at least a share of the MIC crown with Friday night’s win. The Huskies can win the title outright with a victory over Peru next Friday in Arcadia. Cass is a game back of Heights.
The Panthers wound up out-gaining Heights 249-219 for the game, but the Huskies won the turnover battle 4-1. Senior fullback Hudson Featherstone ran for 116 yards on 28 carries for Western, while classmate James Davis finished with 97 yards on 18 carries on what could be the final home game of the current senior class’ careers, depending on the outcome of Sunday’s sectional draw.
With one game left before the postseason, Andrews wants to see his team put Friday night in the rear-view mirror and focus on what it still has to play for.
“Unfortunately, that’s the only thing we can do,” Andrews said about bouncing back. “We can’t sit here and dwell on this. We can learn from it and try to cry to correct not necessarily our mistakes, but all the things that add up to this performance. The great thing about the state of Indiana is that everyone has a postseason, so that’s what we have to look forward to.”
