Pioneer’s MWC win streak is on the line

Logansport hosts Richmond; Cass hosts Western

(Continued)

Justyn Curtis has passed for 1,174 yards and 11 TDs to lead Richmond. Taylor Kidd has rushed for 500 yards and six TDs.

Western (4-4, 4-2 MIC) at Cass (7-1, 5-1 MIC)

From 2002-09, Cass had Western’s number, beating the Panthers seven straight times. The Panthers followed with wins in 2010 and last year. The Panthers lead the all-time series 25-21.

Tonight, the Panthers visit the Class 2A No. 7-ranked Kings for a clash of upper-division Mid-Indiana Conference teams.

Cass is on a roll, having won four straight and having outscored its opponents 219-12 during the streak.

Western had a three-game happy streak snapped last week when it fell to MIC leader Hamilton Heights 33-0.

Heights handed Cass its only loss, 45-7 back in Week 4.

Caston (6-2, 4-2 MWC) at Tri-County (1-7, 1-5 MWC)

The third-place Comets travel to seventh-place Tri-County, a team that is coming off a 54-8 loss to Pioneer.

“They’ve certainly got the athletes that if they put it all together they’re a formidable foe to go play,” Caston coach Chris Ulerick said.

Caston quarterback Quentin Douglass is questionable with a rib injury suffered in last week’s 20-15 win over Winamac.

“He’s been getting better, we don’t know yet,” Ulerick said.

If Douglass can’t play, Jeremy Gonzalez, who carried the Comets to victory last week, will once again move from fullback to quarterback.

“He’s got a week of practice under his belt, so we can be more dynamic with our offense,” Ulerick said.

Gonzalez has rushed for 866 yards and eight touchdowns, and Douglass has passed for 624 yards and seven TDs.

Frontier (0-8, 0-6 MWC) at Winamac (5-3, 3-3 MWC)

Winamac coach Tim Roth said his squad “gave the ballgame away” in last week’s 20-15 loss at Caston.

“It was a matter of we were averaging three penalties per game going in, and we had 11 penalties in the game,” Roth said. “It took us out of it. We were inside the 10 three different times and on two of the three we had to punt because we backed up on penalties. It was a lack of execution on our part. We didn’t play smart and it cost us.”

Frontier enters on a 26-game losing streak but played Carroll to a 24-0 game last week.

“I hope we don’t take anyone lightly,” Roth said. “We’re looking to get momentum going into the tournament. We had to refocus this week in practice.”

Tyler Katschke has rushed for 987 yards and 11 touchdowns to lead Winamac. Zach Shidler has passed for 795 yards and 10 TDs.
