NEW PALESTINE – It’s time, and the Dragons are ready.

One of the state’s fiercest high school football playoff rivalries the past four years, the Class 5A No. 2 Dragons (9-0) host the No. 4 Olympians (8-1) at Kelso Stadium to open Sectional 14.

While never meeting in the regular season, the two teams can’t seem to avoid each other in the postseason, playing three straight years beforehand with New Palestine holding a 2-1 series lead. The winner of the past three games has marched on to the state finals, claiming two championships combined.
