EVANSVILLE, IN (WFIE) - The Reitz bowl is the site of our Touchdown Live game of the week, Castle versus Mater Dei. This should a great game onsite, between 2 of the top teams in the SIAC.
Castle beat Central last week, to improve to 3-2, but don't let their record fool you. Sophomore Dayne Keller has really settled in, now, at quarterback, and don't sleep on tailback Christian Peach, who's closing in, on the all-time Castle rushing record.
Mater Dei is still unbeaten, though, with a stout 'D' that's only been giving up 10 points a game. Offensively, the 'Cats have been very 'un-Mater Dei-like', relying on a 3-headed rushing attack, rather than the pass, but, they do have the ability to take shots down field. Elsewhere, Owensboro travels to Madisonville, in an important district battle of one-loss teams.
The Maroons impressed in a 49-0 shellacking of Henderson last week, but the Red Devils' great speed will be a big test. Also, Heritage Hills will try to slow down Gibson Southern.
