Football teams post strong regular season finishes

TERRE HAUTE — Time to check the results of the final week of the regular season for Indiana high school football teams:

• Ben Davis, Carmel and Center Grove share the championship in the Metropolitan Interscholastic Conference, all with 6-1 league marks and 8-1 overall.

Ben Davis edged Carmel 10-7, and Center Grove defeated Warren Central 8-5 in two classic games to set up the tri-championship situation. Carmel allowed just 38 points in MIC games while Ben Davis gave up about eight points per game.

Terre Haute North is fourth in the final standings with a 4-3 mark, beating and finishing ahead of Warren Central.

• Linton defeated North Central in Lucas Oil Stadium to finish 9-0, its fifth unbeaten season in coach Steve Weber’s time at the school. Nice record.

The Miners had five shutouts in the season and outscored opponents 500 to 50.

North Central had a great season, going 7-2 and scoring 287 points. The Thunderbirds will look to rebound from the Linton game against Turkey Run in sectional action while Linton plays North Knox.

Illinois schools have one regular-season game left this week, and Casey takes an 8-0 mark into its final game with rival Marshall. If the Warriors win, it will be seven unbeaten marks in the last nine years for them.
