Sports

EVANSVILLE, Ind. (WEHT) Memorial and Mater Dei will meet Friday night in one of the biggest games so far of the high school season.

Both teams are a perfect 3-0.

Mater Dei is ranked #1 in Class 2A. Memorial is ranked #4 in Class 4A.

Mater Dei head coach Mike Goebel says, “We knew coming in that Memorial had a lot of people coming back, they have played 30 games in the past two years and they have been on the carpet of the state finals. So they have a wealth of experience.”

Memorial head coach John Hurley adds, “We anticipated them being pretty solid coming into the year and then getting to see them play and watch the film, it’s obvious they have a lot of miles played in these games. They do a great job up front and they run the ball really well.”

Kick-off is 7 pm at the Reitz Bowl.
