Warrick County Standard
Week four of 2018 football will be this Friday and here's what we now know about Warrick County football. The Boonville Pioneers are for real while Castle and Tecumseh has thus far been inconsistent. Below are previews of all three upcoming games for Castle, Boonville and Tecumseh.
Castle vs. Bosse
Some relief might be in sight for the Castle Knights. Castle (1-2), who has lost their last two games at New Albany and at Reitz respectively, will be playing the Bosse Bulldogs on Friday at Castle's John Lidy Field. Bosse is coming off a lopsided defeat at the hands of the Central Bears. Central defeated Bosse by the score of 42-6.
They were previously defeated by North Vermillion and did win against the Washington Hatchets who everybody seems to be beating this year.
A win for the Knights against anybody would be a big confidence booster for Doug Hurt's team. Against Reitz, Castle had the lead briefly in the third quarter but couldn't maintain the lead. Against New Albany, three turnovers for the game is what did them in.
Boonville vs. Harrisburg
If there is one thing Pioneers coach Darin Ward might be concern with against the Harrisburg Bulldogs it would be a letdown. The Pioneers (3-0) are just coming off two consecutive victories against two of the better teams in the conference Vincennes Lincoln and Jasper.
The Bulldogs are 0-2 this year losing to Mt. Carmel 20-13 in the first week and Duquoin in the second week.
"Against Harrisburg, we will have to stop their double tight, full house, backfield running attack. I look for us to come out with the same intensity and enthusiasm we have played all season," Boonville coach Darin ward said.
The winning strategy for the Pioneers all season has been to give the ball to Luke Conner and have him run with it all season. The senior has rushed for 496 yards and has eight touchdowns for the season.
Tecumseh vs. Forest Park
The Braves are looking to

bounce back after a demoralizing defeat at the hands of North Knox last week. North Knox defeated Tecumseh by the score of 52-7.
The Braves should like their chances against Forest Park. The Rangers are 0-3 and have been outscored by their opponents by the total scores of 141-7.
"Forest Park is a much better than their record would indicate," Tecumseh coach Jeff Daming said. "They have played three very good teams and do a extremely nice job of running the football. I believe the game will come down to turnovers and special teams.
