Reitz preps for sectional showdown with Central

EVANSVILLE, Ind. (WFIE) - For the fourth time in the last five years, the Reitz Panthers and the Central Bears will play in the sectional’s opening game.

Central’s had the upper hand of late in this series winning four straight, including 42-0 in week four, but that, of course, means nothing now.

“Everybody’s in the same boat, 0-0, whether you had a great regular season or whether it hasn’t been what you wanted it to be, you got a shot," says Reitz Head Coach Andy Hape. "We preach all the time about just wanting an opportunity to compete, we’ve got that opportunity, and we’ve got to make the most of it. Let’s be real honest, Central’s a good football team. Coach Coultis has done a great job coming in first year, doing things with this team. We know what we got, and we know that we got our hands full skill-wise, off the charts. Got a good game plan, we’re excited about the opportunity to compete against a great team that central is.”
