Frontier (0-2, 0-1 MWC) at Caston (0-2, 0-1 MWC)
Things started out well enough for the Comets last week at Class A No. 5 West Central.
“We had made so much improvement,” Caston coach Chris Ulerick said. “We were up 13-12 on a really decent football team. We had moved the ball down the field twice on the first two possessions and had made all kinds of progress.
“Then there was a bad call on an inadvertent whistle and for some reason the kids cashed it in. Until that point we had actually played decent football until that point in the first quarter. ... Everything just fell apart after that inadvertent whistle by the official.”
The Comets are facing a Falcons team that has lost 30 straight games, 21 straight MWC games and four straight to Caston.
But after scoring just 48 points all of last year, the Falcons have already scored 38 this season. They lost 20-7 to Clinton Prairie in Week 1 and 33-31 to South Newton in Week 2.
“I think they’re much improved,” Ulerick said. “I’m sure coach [Jamie] Sailors has been working with them. They line up and get after it. They have decent size. Their backs and quarterback are pretty good athletes. ... They had a chance last week and didn’t pull it off.”
Logan (0-2, 0-0 NCC) at Hunting N. (0-2, 0-0 NCC)
The Berries are playing a Vikings team that likes to throw the ball and then throw it some more.
HN quarterback Keenan Leichty has already thrown 115 passes this season. He is 49 of 115 for 456 yards with three touchdowns and no interceptions.
The Vikings have played two Class 6A teams to start the season with losses to Homestead (37-26) in Week 1 and Fort Wayne Carroll (41-6) in Week 2.
“I charted the 193 plays in their first game and they threw around 70 times,” Logan coach Brad Urban said. “Watching them play they can run the ball a little bit, but they like to throw the ball and catch it. Their quarterback gets rid of it fast.
