Comets, Warriors ready for MWC clash

Logan visits NC in search of first NCC win.

Something’s got to give when Winamac travels to Caston tonight.

The teams both enter having had successful seasons to this point with identical overall records (5-2) and Midwest Conference records (3-2). Both teams’ losses were to Class A No. 5 Pioneer and No. 8 West Central.

Caston played both Pioneer and West Central closer than Winamac did, but the Warriors arguably have the most impressive win of the season between the two squads in last week’s 47-25 win over North Judson.

“They looked like a much-improved team from the week before against West Central,” Caston coach Chris Ulerick said of the Warriors. “We have to make sure we can match their skill level and be ready to play football.”

“It’s another backyard rivalry game for us, the third in three weeks,” Winamac coach Tim Roth said. “I think it’ll be a great game. It’s one of those where I don’t want to say it’s a trap game coming off a big win against North Judson, but our guys definitely have to be focused.”

The Comets are coming off a 40-23 throttling of South Newton in a game their first-team defense did not allow a score and led at one point 40-7 in the fourth quarter.

“It surprised me a little,” Caston coach Chris Ulerick said of his squad’s defensive performance. “The kids are really playing well on the defensive side of the football. It’s certainly a pleasant surprise to have.”

Winamac has been the higher scoring team, outscoring opponents by an average of 31-28, while Caston has been the better defensive team, outscoring opponents 25-20.

“Looking at what Chris has done, they don’t score a lot of points, but they don’t have to because they play defense so well,” Roth said. “I think it’ll be a great Midwest Conference football game. Hopefully we score one more point than they do.”
