Kats getting healthy again after rough start

(Continued)

After taking a 30-14 loss to Western two weeks ago, Northwestern re-committed to making sure the Purple Tigers were right fundamentally, and responded with a 47-14 victory over Taylor. Hendryx said the team has made progress the last two weeks in practice and needs to continue showing that tonight.

Michael Plummer leads the Tigers with 563 yards on the ground. Trey Richmond has passed for 333 yards.

“Northwestern’s a solid ball team, very well coached,” Hartman said. “They have a lot of weapons. We know that we’re going to have to play very disciplined defense against what they do offensively, and we’re going to have to win the war up front offensively.”

WESTERN (4-1, 2-1 MIC) AT PERU (4-1, 2-1 MIC)

The Panthers visit the Bengal Tigers tonight for a matchup of teams coming off their first losses.

Western dropped a 28-18 decision to Maconaquah, while upstart Peru saw its longest unbeaten start to a season in 30 years come to an end with a 46-7 loss to Cass.

Hamilton Heights leads the MIC at 3-0. Western and Peru are part of a four-way logjam for second in the standings.

Western beat Peru 59-0 last year for its 13th straight win in the teams’ series.

CASS (2-3, 1-2 MIC) AT EASTERN (1-4, 0-3 MIC)

Cass whipped previously unbeaten Peru 46-7 last week to snap a three-game losing streak as it hits the midpoint of the season.

Eastern, meanwhile, is in a rut. The Comets are allowing 54.7 points per game in MIC play.

The Kings beat the Comets 47-0 last year for its 13th win in the last 14 meetings between the squads.

Eastern High School’s Class of 1963 is celebrating its 50th reunion with the dedication of a sign commemorating the football program’s state-record 37-game win streak over the course of the early 1960s. The sign will go on the east side of the ticket office at Cogdell Field.

Sometimes I believe she can get the rash by simply looking at the noxious weed.
