Talk about a coin flip prediction.

There are several great Sectional final matchups this week in the south, this is the best IMO. 

Leaning Central, but not sure at this point.

Memorial can’t give up 8 sacks and turn the ball over 6 times again.

Can they both lose? At least some controversy so neither can claim absolute victory. 

Really though, I'm torn. I want Memorial to win, but I don't want them to gain success points so they can return to 3A.

Regardless, it's impressive for Central to have continued success given its history over the years. A strong Central program benifits all of Evansville and SW Indiana.

While I hated the bye week, it did help Memorial get healthy and we looked sharper on O against Boonville than what we had in prior weeks.  I would have liked to have seen Jasper give Central a little more competition early on than what they did, but the result wasn't very surprising.  If you let Central get rolling, they will smother you.  Memorial will have to play a complete game, but eliminate the turnovers.  Should be a great game and a hostile environment.  As TigerFan20 points out, this will be the 100th meeting of Memorial and Central.  Memorial holds the overall advantage 59-38-2, but Central has won 4 of the last 5.

This rematch is so anticipated, I am counting down the hours LOL! I really like our O-Line Friday night, it seemed a whole better as Tango mentioned it. The defense was somewhat strange because we missed tackles causing them to have log drives. But we did eventually stopped them when we needed too. Overall ,I was pretty much proud with our performance last Friday night, and was very impressed with Boonville's stadium.

Memorial needs to a big game from the OL if they can give Pence time and open up some holes for Brock and Finn and Josh we will have a big night. First one to 28 wins this game. Go big blue! FTF!!!!

I agree with Tiger391, Pence needs time to throw to either one of his WRs. If we want to the running attack, we need our linemen to open holes wide enough to break loose or be physical enough to go around Central's D-line to gain a whole lot of yardage. Who knows what will happen this Friday, it is definitely a toss up.

Over/under on 15 yard penalties? EM owns a few over the years but has cleaned it up compared to last season. EC continues to rack them up. 

Hopefully a good clean game......for one of the teams. #FTF

I would have picked Central earlier, but since they weren't even able to defeat Mater Dei later in the season, that tells me they slid a little down hill. EM wins the rematch by 7 to 10 points.

Surely we won’t have to play 5A now?  I’m missing some crickets that said the Tigers run will be over in 2018 and there’s no way they can compete in 4A. 
 

7 titles in 12 years under coach JH. Can we say his staff is officially the KINGS of SW Indiana football coaches?

It will be a rough year next season, but after that, let's see if the rumors will happen

Edit: The "rumor" is that the 7th grade team is supposedly good and should contend for a title of the next 3-4 years
