Memorial will have to play a perfect game to have a chance. That still may not be enough.  

I would say both teams will have to bring their A game. If one team doesn’t they will lose.  2 really good football teams in this game.

It’s over.  

Memorial fans can safely start making Thanksgiving weekend reservations in Indy.

Ehhh, not so fast my friend. This is not the same Mt. Vernon from 2 years ago. But I do enjoy another Friday night game at Enlow again 😉

When will Indy coaches ever learn the lesson about Friday games in Evansville?

Sounded like Saturday afternoon wasn’t going to work. Bosse hosting a big youth basketball tournament throughout the day. I heard Saturday start time would have to be after 5. Not 100% but that’s the info I got. I’m certainly not disappointed about an early Friday game. 
Mt Vernon looks as good as any team Memorial has played since the 2017 state run. My top 4 opponents during this run for Memorial.  2018 WL, 2021 MT V, 2017 Danville , 2018 Chatard.

I saw 7:30 CT, which is against IHSAA regulations I believe. MV AD did not specify the timezone, so it could’ve been eastern when he said that.

I didn’t realize there was a basketball tournament that morning for Bosse. Since I thought the change was because Bosse has JV/varsity basketball from 5-8:30 against Heritage Hills. So I’m guessing MV wanted to play 3:00 pm CT

🤷‍♂️ If they want to play on Friday, I am totally down with that. Seems like it’s an 3.5 hour bus ride depending when they leave

The atmosphere at Enlow Field is much better on a Friday night than Saturday afternoon.  

Saturday wasn’t too bad, 1H was drained out, but 2H was way better after we were back in business.

Either way, 

Friday>Saturday 

Going to be chilly, but who cares! Stands are going to be packed and rocking just like the previous home SS games.
