Reitz edged by Central in overtime Friday night, 43-42, by the skin of their teeth, going for and scoring a two-point conversion that gave them the one-point victory.
The win avenged the Panthers’ Sept. 8 loss to the Bears, a 36-31 setback. The Panthers are on a seven-game win streak since that night.
Just like last year, Reitz and Central split their two meetings. The Panthers also won in overtime last year.
The Bears, who were the defending sectional champions, finished their season 6-4.
Reitz (8-3) will now travel to Jasper (11-0) next Friday night to fight for the Class 4A Sectional Championship.
