Friday night's Vigo County matchups


Terre Haute North at Northview

The action — Terre Haute North (1-1) travels to Northview (2-0) to play a nonconference game.

Kickoff — 7 p.m.

Airwaves — The game will be broadcast on WFNF-AM 1130 and WFNF-FM 99.5 with the pregame show beginning at 6:45 p.m.

So far — Terre Haute North crushed Castle 44-14 at Lucas Oil Stadium on Aug. 23, but were then beaten by Terre Haute South 28-24 last Friday. Northview defeated Indianapolis Broad Ripple 22-18 on Aug. 23 and defeated Edgewood 20-9 last Friday.

Last meeting — Terre Haute North won 55-0 at North in 2012.

Last time Northview beat North — The Knights defeated the Patriots 28-23 in 2006. It is the only Northview victory since the current continuous series was resumed in 1999.

Coaches — Chris Barrett is 45-76 in his 12th year at North and is 73-108 in 19 years overall. Mark Raetz is 2-0 in his inaugural season at Northview and 17-45 overall in his seventh season.

Outlook — Northview is looking to maintain momentum from a 2-0 start and North is trying to regain it after a tough loss. Historically, North has controlled this series and has dominated it in recent seasons, but the Knights’ solid start, coupled with North’s fall-from-ahead loss to South gives Northview hope. However, North — which is just on the fringe of the Class 5A top 10 in 11th spot — was a good bounce-back team in 2012. The Patriots only lost two in a row once in 2012 … and one of its losses in that streak was a narrow 17-15 defeat at the hands of Center Grove. Northview will be buoyed by the return of WR Tyler Rector and linemen Jacob Little and Lucas Cooksey.

Injuries, lineup changes — For North, WR Jordan Moothery is out with undisclosed health issues and WR Austin Massey out until next week. RB Kai Stratton is questionable with an Achilles injury. For Northview, DT/C Logan Michaels is out with a knee injury.

Words from Barrett — On playing Northview a week after playing South: “It’s back-to-back weeks for us against teams in our backyard. It’s a dangerous combination. Northview much better than they were a year ago.

On recovering from last week’s loss: “It was a loss in which we played as fundamentally poor as we have in a long time. We’re big on the process and preparation. We want to focus on the little things. Attitude and effort. It didn’t take long to steer the ship back in the right direction. There was a lot of disappointment about our performance. We’ve always tried to get our guys to focus on what it takes to prepare to win. When you do that? It’s easy to bounce back.”

On Raetz at Northview versus what he did at South: “He’s doing a lot of the same things. When you’re a coach, you do what you do and you do what you know. We’ll see a lot of similarities, but he’s smart enough to adapt it to the players he has.”

Words from Raetz — On Northview’s 2-0 start: “I guess what’s been most encouraging is our kids have been really resilient. We played two tough teams to start the season. [Against Broad Ripple in Week 1] We came back in the fourth quarter to win. Last week, we had the lightning delay and had to come back on Saturday to finish. In both cases, our players did a good job.”

On North: “North is an outstanding team, probably the best team we’ll play all year. For us to be successful, we have to put together four great quarters of football. We have to sustain and finish drives. We have to tackle well. they have outstanding backs. We have to avoid the big play. We have to do those things well. If we execute and do those things.”

On the Knights’ confidence level: “Our kids feel good about what we’ve done so far, but they’re hungry to do more. We have a lot of work to do. We’re not playing perfect football.”
