Andy Hape and the Reitz Panthers know they'll face a motivated Jasper squad Friday.
The Reitz Panthers started the 2013 season 1-2, including a shutout loss to the Castle Knights on the road. But it's been little more than smooth sailing ever since for first-year head coach Andy Hape. The Panthers offense awoke in Week 4, putting up 63 points in a win over Harrison, and they haven't looked back. The Panthers are averaging 32 points a game on offense, with the defense only allowing just north of 16 ppg.
Reitz expects a motivated Jasper Wildcat team to meet them on the field Friday. The Panthers have eliminated Jasper three of the last four years in sectional play. Last year's matchup was a thriller, with Reitz coming out on top 31-30.
That game is scheduled for 7:00pm Friday night.
