Week three of the 2018 football season is already here. The Pioneers remain undefeated while Castle suffered their first loss and Tecumseh scored their first win in Week 2. Let's take a look at this week's match ups.
Castle at Reitz
This will be the first SIAC game for both schools. The game will be played the The Reitz Bowl and both teams should be hungry.
The Knights (1-1) are coming off a 27-20 loss against New Albany while Reitz (1-1) is coming off a 35-34 loss against Owensboro. Reitz's quarterback Eli Wiethop threw 11 for 20 in the game including three first half touchdowns.
As for Castle, they are hoping to have the same offense they had the first week where they scored 42 against Terre Haute South.
A win for Castle at Reitz could send ripple effects that would be heard all over the SIAC.
Currently, the Knights are ranked sixth in Class 5A while the Panthers are ranked third in 4A.
Boonville at Jasper
The Pioneers will have their hardest games of the season in consecutive weeks. They won't have much time to celebrate last week's win as they travel to face off against perennial power Jasper one week after defeating last year's conference champions Vincennes Lincoln.
The Jasper Wildcats just trounced Southridge by the score of 35-7 after losing to Evansville Memorial currently ranked first in Class 3A in the first week.
The Pioneers are having

a great start to their season with the help of one of the area's top running backs Luke Conner. Against Vincennes, Conner rushed for 198 yards with three touchdowns.
"Jasper is always the team to beat in the Big Eight," Pioneers coach Darin Ward said. "The team with the fewest turnovers and that is sound in the kicking game will win."
North Knox vs. Tecumseh
After last week's emotional game that saw Tecumseh defeat Pike Central on the debut of the Braves new football stadium, Tecumseh (1-1) will try to remain undefeated at the stadium as they will host North Knox.
The Warriors are 0-2 including last week's game where they lost 21-14 to Eastern Greene.
"North Knox has a very effective run game but have not passed the ball a lot at this point in the season," Braves coach Jeff Daming said. "Defending them will be our toughest task so far this season. North Knox is very well coached and don't make many mistakes."
