Reitz upsets No. 2 Jasper for sectional crown

The heart of the Mighty Panthers shone threw Friday night at Jerry Brewer Stadium. After trailing, 17-0, late in the first half, Reitz battled back and nailed a field goal with 9.1 seconds left in the game, upsetting the previously undefeated, No. 2 Jasper Wildcats, 31-30, to win the Class 4A Sectional 16 Championship.

The Panthers now lead the series, five games to two, while Jasper finished their season at 11-1.

It was the 14th sectional title for Reitz and their first since 2009. The Panthers (9-3) will now face the No. 1 team in the state, Columbus East (12-0), led by former Reitz head coach, Bob Gaddis.
