Columbus North (9-1) found success last week, but it has a real challenge ahead. Both it and Center Grove (5-5) have made it this far into the playoffs, but they square off this Friday at 7:00 PM to determine who is worthy to move on. Both teams are strolling into their matchup after big wins in their previous games.
Columbus North has added another blowout to its collection (now totaling seven) after its most recent game. It put the hurt on Jeffersonville last week with a conclusive 56 - 14 victory. Junior Trenton Kelley deserves a lot of the credit as he tossed the ball for 182 yards and three TDs. Kelley has been a consistent playmaker for Columbus North as this was the 10th good game in a row from him. Senior Tristan Bailey was in the mix too, providing Columbus North with three touchdowns.
Meanwhile, a win looked likely for Center Grove given its edge in the state rankings, but it did even better than expected last week. It breezed past Franklin Central last week with a final score of 35 - 3. With three TDs, freshman Carson Steele was a significant factor in the success.
The last time they met, Center Grove was the clear winner with a 41 - 14 finish. This defeat knocked Columbus North out of the playoffs, so expect it to come at Center Grove with a vengeful fire.
