Cougars ready to roar in Round 2 of sectional play

North Daviess (8-2) v. Perry Central (8-2)

There are no easy games between Elnora and Indianapolis for the North Daviess Cougar football team at this point in the season.

After dismantling, Springs Valley in the opening round of sectional last Friday, The Cougars are now one of four very potent teams left in Sectional 48.

The 8-2 Cougars will travel to old rival Perry Central, also 8-2, in what might well be one of the best Class A match ups in the state. On the other side of the bracket, Linton at 10-0 and 9-1 Tecumseh will also battle for a spot in the sectional final in a great game of their own.

“Of the four teams left, they have only a combined five losses between them,” said ND coach Scott Helms. “Sectional 48 is a very tough sectional. Tecumseh hasn’t lost since they lost to us in Week 1. Every one knows how good Linton is, and Perry Central’s only losses came to Corydon (3A) and a good 2A Tell City team that gave Southridge a heck of a game at sectional last week.”

“I think there is more competitive balance in Class A this year. There is very good football around the state and with Lafayette Central Catholic and Secenia moving up, it will be difficult but more teams will have a real chance. I would say that the teams in Soutwestern Indiana are definitely some of the best,” added Helms.

Although Perry Central and North Daviess don’t play during the regular season, they have a long rivalry of sectional matchups.

“We have split our last four times we have played,” said Helms. “We won in ‘08 and ‘09 and lost in ‘10. I know our seniors will remember that game.”

Helms said that the Commodores are a team that will “look a lot like us.”

The Commodores are currently coached by Greg Gibson, who was a long-time assistant for coach Mike Spencer. Gibson has been with the team since 1996 and coached on both state final teams.
