Back against their rivals.
The huskies are trying to snap a 5 game losing streak to their rivals from central..
While the bears are looking for their first perfect regular season since 2006.
Central wasting no time..
Tory evans scampers in from 9 yards out..
Central draws first blood.
The bears get the ball back and are looking for more..
But cale jonson is there to make the tackle..
It's 7-0 after one.
Start of the second..
Central facing a second and 14..
And they give it to javonte madison.
The senior is an absolute unit..
Rumbling 36 yards for a first down and more.
Very next play..
They reward madison..
Powering through from 5 yards out..
Its 14 - 0 central..
And the bears still werent done.
They continue to feed the freight train..
Madison converting a huge 4th and 3..
As no one can take down that 250 pound beast..
And then they let jacob boberg do the rest.
Arm tackles don't take down central running backs..
The bears dominate this one..
Evans told me before the game it was going to be 35 - 0..
And he nailed it.
The bears finish the regular season unbeaten.
Castle saw their 5 game win streak snapped a week ago..
The knights look to get back in the win column as they take on memorial.
We pick it up late in the first half ... still no score.
The tigers take to the air ... sophomore caleb ellspermann launches ... and finds xavier tyler who hauls it in at the 10 yard line.
From there ... memorial turns to josh russell ... who slices in for the first score of the game ... 7-0 tigers at the half.
Castle comes out of the locker room determined to get back in it ... sophomore cameron tilly calls his own number ... and rambles 20 yards down to the memorial 8.
From there ... he gives the rock to peyton guerzini ... who batters his way in for the touchdown.
Knotting the game at 7 a piece we move to the 4th ... same score ... facing 3rd and short ... ellspermann fires to the sideline ... and nick harper makes the snag ... staying in bounds and keeping the drive alive.
Now memorial goes with some trickery..
The double reverse fools everyone including the cameraman ... and dominic norman scampers 25 yards to give the tigers back the lead.
This one goes down to wire ... with memorial rallying for a 19-14 victory.
A top the hill that trophy is what is on the line... mater dei takes on reitz for west side supremacy.
Mater dei on the move..
Mason wunderlich drops back and throws over the middle to eli mcdurmon..
Mater dei moves the chains.... and the wildcats continue the air attack.
Wunderlich fakes the handoff and fires to preston turner... who gets stopped shy of the endzone..
But no matter.
One play later..
The wildcats finish the drive..
Bryce humphrey through traffic.
Mater dei leads 17-0.
Reitz looking to respond.
On a fourth down..
The panthers go for it..
And it works.
Reid brickey to issac maynard..
First down panthers.
Time winding down in the half..
Brickey looks to his left and finds malachi joy..
The senior spins and picks up additional yardage..
Panthers in business and shortly after..
They cash in..
The handoff looks like it is to jay smith..
But reitz makes me look foolish on the fake..
Brickey goes in untouched.
Panthers on the board.
This one gets interesting early in the second half..
But mater dei pulls away to win 40-20 as we head to romain stadium..
Both bosse and harrison are looking for their first victory of the season.
But it's a bad snap and pagerick wade takes advantage..
Wrapping up the quarterback and stripping the ball loose..
Bosse does recover but the bulldogs have to punt.
On the ensuing harrison possession..
The handoff is to albert wadlington and he's heading toward the near sideline..
He's pushed out of bounds..
But first down warriors.
A few plays later..
Harrison spreading the wealth..
Billy sears gets taken down on top of a bulldog..
So he springs back up and gets his kicker into field goal range... and bradly watson doesn't disappoint.
The senior splitting the uprights.
Harrison wins it 18-0.
The warriors snap their 24 game losing streak.
Harrison wins 18-0..
Snapping a 24 game losing streak.
