For the first time since winning its fourth sectional title in five years seven seasons ago, Muncie Central will finish with a winning record.
The 6-3 Bearcats host 1-8 Greenfield-Central Friday night at 7 p.m. in a rematch of a 2012 Sectional 21 quarterfinal tilt. The Cougars’ prevailed in that rain-soaked battle of gridiron felines, 21-14.
Clear skies, a low of 31 degrees and an emphasis on the running game are in Friday’s forecast.
G-C lost its eighth in a row last Friday at Pendleton Heights, but its 28 points were the most it had recorded since its season-opening 32-7 win over New Castle.
Unveiling a new under-center approach that featured an unbalanced set, the Cougars rumbled for 267 yards against the Arabians. Both Cameron Nuckols (146 yards, 7.3 yards per carry) and Andy Kim (102 yards, 6.4 YPC) were effective in the new attack.
