It's hard to believe the 2018 football season is almost halfway over. But here we are, heading into Week 5. Below are upcoming games for all three Warrick County Schools.
Castle vs. Central
After a fairly easy game against Bosse, Castle's opponent this Friday will be anything but as the Evansville Central Bears will be coming to town. The Bears are currently ranked fourth in Class 4A. Last week the Bears had to come from behind to defeat Reitz 26-21. Castle lost to this same Reitz team by the score of 38-21 at the Reitz Bowl.
"We have to play better on both sides of the ball," Castle coach Doug Hurt said. "We are going to have to play nearly perfect on the offensive and defensive sides of ball as well as the kicking game to have a chance."
This week's game will be the Knights biggest game of the year until they face Memorial the last game of the season.
Boonville vs. Lapel
Google Lapel, Indiana and you'll still be hard pressed to know where it's located. For Boonville fans wanting to make it up to the game, they better get onto Google maps as that is where Boonville will be traveling to play their game this Saturday.
It's hard to get a read on Lapel by just looking at their schedule. They currently have a 2-2 record. Their wins include a 52-8 blowout of Elwood but in the game, they've lost by a combined 73 points.
"Lapel will look to throw the football a lot and our secondary will have to play a sound football game Offensively, we need to continue to improve on our throw game and execute our run game," Boonville coach Darin Ward said.
Tecumseh vs. Perry Central
Defeating Perry Central might be a tough task for these Tecumseh Braves. The Braves are coming off a 13-0 win over Forest Park. Perry Central defeated this same Forest Park team by the score of 45-0. Perry Central also boasts win against Tell City and Crawford County.
"Perry Central will be a big test for our team," Tecumseh coach Jeff Daming said. "Their passing game is the best we've seen up to this point in the season. Their deep ball capability will be a threat all night. They are a run-first team but their quarterback does throw the ball well and has a nice group of receivers to work with."
