The regular season here on the 44blitz..

We also find out who gets to claim the final conference championship in the big 8..
Vernon goes after what could be their first football league title in school history..
While jasper is tryng to add to their trophy case.
We have all that action and more..
As the 44blitz..
And welcome to the final week of the regular season.
Alongside andrew garcia..
Im john rawlings..
And tonight is rivalry night.
That's right john.
And what's even more interesting is heading into tonight..
It is possible that 5 teams could all split the ???
Memorial is one of those teams..
The tigers do control their own destiny..
All they have to do is get past their rivals from newburgh.
Memorial has beaten castle the past three years..
The tigers gun for their fourth straight win against their arch nemesis.
Very first play of the game..
The tigers wanting to go long..
But adam harpenau has other ideas..
The senior with a nice interception..
But castle is unable to move the ball.
A few possessions later..
It's memorials turn to shine on defense.
Brock combs gets the sack in the endzone for a safety..
Memorial takes a 2?
The tigers want to add on with the ensuing possession..
The pitch is to josh russell..
He gets knocked out of bounds at the two.
The tigers elect to go for it on fourth down..
But adam watson is there to save the day..
It's a two point game after one.
Memorial looking to strike in the second..
On 4th and 8..
Colton pence has time and finds russell over the middle..
A 15 yard gain sets the tigers up inside the redzone..
But here comes that castle d again.
Memorial going for it on 4th down once more..
Andrew perry makes the stop..
And the knights take over.
Memorials defense was just as stingy tonight..
Combs doesn't bite ont he fake as he comes up with a big sack to force the knights to punt.
So memorial goes back to work..
And with under 30 to go..
The tigers have another chance..
But it's another big time play by andrew peery..
The senior with his second pick of the game..
The halftime score is 2 0.
In the beginning of the fourth..
Castle does get on the board behind the leg of jackson mitchell..
The 35 yarder is true..
But memorial comes on back to win this ball game 11?
Clinching a share of the ???c title.
This one has siac implications as well.
Memorial's win means the bears can only hope for a split in the conference race.
North facing a fourth down... the huskies elect to go for it..
Central stops them in their tracks led by julian johnson and camdyn counts.
Bears take over deep in husky territory and that sets this up.
Collins turner hands it off to brennan schutte.
The senior takes care of the rest as central is on the board.
The bears would get the ball back shortly after..
Schutte continues to lead the ground attack..
Here he cuts through the middle then goes back to the outside racing up the sideline for a big time gain... finally taken down at the 18.
And ya know what?
The bears let him finish off the drive once more.
Turner gives it back to schutte..
Who would not be denied on his way to the house.
That makes it 1?0.
But wait here comes north.
Down in the red zone..
Qb ethan brawdy takes it himself.
Up through the middle for the score.
Huskies trail 1?7.
North would get another opportunity in the second.
The huskies again try on fourth down..
The throw has a chance..
But the pass is broken up by tre'jon evans.
Bears take over and they never look back.
Central wins 4?14 claiming a share of siac crown.
Another siac hopeful is mater dei... as they battle reitz.
The wildcats have not beaten the panthers since 2015.
We begin in the third quarter.
Panthers lead 1?10.
Reitz trying to get a double reverse going... the panthers almost fake me out... but kyle davidson was not.
Making the stop.
Ensuing mater dei possession... cole happe hands it off to john mcgrew... and it is off to the races.
The senior scores the go ahead touchdown... mater dei leads 1?14.
Next wildcat possession... mcgrew does it again..
Another big time run up the side line and finally brought down.
Mater dei in business.
And shortly after..
Mcgrew again with another run to the outside... he appears to go down and refuses to do so.
Diving for the endzone at the end extending mater dei's lead to 10.
Mater dei hangs on to win 3?28.
And we end the ???c with harrison and bosse..
Both teams are looking for their first conference win of the season.
Harrison striking first..
Dajuan wright makes the dive as the warriors draw first blood.
As we head into the second..
Bosse takes the lead..
Javonte madison goes up the middle to make it 12?
And now the home team gets defensive.
Harrison looking to go deep but miles suggs is all over the pass..
And then the senior picks up a valuable chunk of yardage..
And what stings the most about a turnover is when it gets turned into points.
Sheldon clay takes the direct snap..
And that boy is gone.
The senior finds the sideline and goes 60 yards to paydirt.
Bosse wins 48?
Now that we have moved through the ???c..
It is time for our first and final break here on the 44blitz.
Be sure to stay tuned..
Because we have a big time matchup in the big 8..
As jasper and mt.
Vernon gun for the final conference crown in league history..
Who did you vote for in 2016?
I voted for trump, and i supporn .
I think matt bevin -- he cares about himself and his friends that are literally putting us good, honest working people in harm's way.
I think andy beshear is a good man.
I don't usually vote for democrats, but i will vote for andy beshear.
G kentucky together.
It took us years to find the perfect bun for culver's pretzel haus pub burger.
It's got a nice pretzel flavor on the outside but when you open it up, it's light and airy.
Got a nice sweet flavor to it, literally melts in your mouth.
This bun is perfect for our pretzel haus pub burger.
Seared fresh beef, tangy mustard bistro sauce, pickle, red onions, two slices of bacon, served with our signature cheddar cheese sauce.
This bun was made for this burger.
This is perfect.
I think this is an awesome burger.
Welcome to delicious!

But there is a pretty big game in jasper.
It has been the talk of both towns..
And all over social media..
The final game to ever be played in the big 8 conference..
And we have two teams with unblemished league records.
Vernon gunning for their very first big 8 crown..
While jasper is looking to add to their trophy case.
We didn't get to take in this monumental game..
It was the one and only joe downs..
How's it going.
Not much was expected of mount vernon when the previews came out... however head coach cory brunson's squad proved the doubters wrong... going unbeaten in big 8 play coming into this final weekend of the season.
.............. not much was expected out of jasper after a rough start to the 2019 campaign ... however first year head coach tony lewis got his squad to this title tilt as well.
To jerry brewer alumni stadium... where brunson's maroon cats were on the ropes midway through the second quarter... down 2?0.
............ however... quarterback rhett snodgrass has them knocking on the door... but it would the jasper defense that slams it right in his face... forcing a field goal attempt which would be missed.
.............. then jasper takes over... and drives deep into mount vernon territory... blake mann connects with nathan rillo... getting the wildcats into the red zone... .............. however mann's fancy passing turns into a passing fancy... courtesy of trevor frisby keeping it a 2?0 ball game at intermission.
.................... early third quarter... mount vernon's forced to punt... but jasper won't permit it... with blocked kick... and ross peter recovers deep in mount vernon territory... ................. this time in scoring range... the wildcats keep it on the ground... some great double dealing fools even the cameraman... almost as much as the mount vernon defense... and by the time they figure it out... isaac day is celebrating in the endzone.
And they're celebrating in jasper as they take the final big 8 crown 2?14 the final.
Keeping things in the big 8..
Washington visits north knox..
Hatchets still looking for their first win of the season..
And this one did not go well for the visitors.

For yet another..
State ranked battle.
It seems as though it's a weekly affair in this conference..
Gibson southern ranked 7th in the state..
While southridge comes in at number 9.
So let's head on out to huntingburg..
The titans coming off back to back shut out wins..
While the raiders are fresh off a 67 point victory.
Gibson southern comes out gunning... sophomore quarterback brady allen hits seth delong in the flat... getting the titans into southridge territory.
However allen tries to go deep and finds only trouble..
As garrett voegerl is their with clutch pick in the endzone... ending the drive.
Second quarter... southridge quarterback carson niehaus tries his luck with the long ball ... and while the wounded mallard isn't pretty... brad springer makes it work with the great snag in traffic for a 40 yard gain.
But the drive stalls near the goal line... and on 4th and goal from the 2... the titans defense shuts the raiders down.
Then with just 30 seconds left before halftime... niehaus gives it another shot with his arm... and this time... garrett voegerl gets the job done on offense in the endzone.
