Week 2 is upon us in high school football. All three Warrick County schools will have something to prove this week, and below are the previews for all three games.

New Albany (1-0) at Castle (0-1)

The Knights are looking to recover from a 34-10 shellacking at the hands of Bloomington South. Playing their first home game of the season at John Lidy Field could boost their confidence.

Last Friday, New Albany defeated Evansville Harrison by the score of 26-6 with the game being played on New Albany’s home field. In the Harrison game, New Albany was led by sophomore Kiondre Winford who was responsible for three of the Bulldogs four touchdowns.

The Knights, who have experience returning on the defensive side of the ball, will need to stop him in order to record their first win of the season.

Castle and New Albancy have played each other in the regular season since 2006. With Jasper and Vincennes Lincoln joining the SIAC next season, this could be the last time both teams see each other in awhile barring a meeting in the tournament as both teams are in the same class (5A).

Boonville (1-0) at Vincennes Lincoln (1-0)

Like Castle/New Albany, this could be the last time these two rivals see each because starting next season, Boonville will be joining the Pocket Athletic Conference and Vincennes Lincoln the SIAC. Boonville is also a Class 4A school compare to Vincenns Lincoln (3A).

In Week 1, the Pioneers drubbed Washington 42-6 while Vencennes Lincoln defeated Evansville Bosse by the final score of 28-10. Boonville, currently on a 10 game regular season winning streak, will have it threatened against a usually decent Vincennes Lincoln football team especially with the game being played at Vincennes.

“Vincennes has a good football team,” Boonville coach Darin Ward said. “They play with a lot of energy on defense.

The team that has the fewest mistakes will win. We look forward to going up there and playing.”

Tecumseh (0-1) at Pike Central (0-1)

Things won’t get any easier for the Braves. After being defeated soundly by North Davies by the score of 42-2, Class A Tecumseh will have to travel and play 3A Pike Central. Pike Central is coming off a huge loss themselves losing to Brown County 41-19.

“Pike is very athletic with a big group of offensive lineman. They run the ball well and play sprinkle in the pass. Defensively they are also big up front and have a nice group of linebackers and defsnesive backs,” Tecumseh coach Jeff Daming said.
