Jasper 17, Reitz 9: Week 12 GameDay Central presented by Tracy Zeller Jewelry


Reitz put up a strong effort, but came up short in Friday night’s Class 4A Sectional 24 Championship game against Jasper, 17-9.

Despite a 1-2 start, the Mighty Panthers and first-year head coach Andy Hape put together a great season and finished 8-4.

Jasper improved to 11-1 and will face Columbus East (12-0), led by former Reitz coach Bob Gaddis, this Friday in a regional championship game.


Reitz has developed quite a postseason rivalry with Jasper, facing the Wildcats in five of the last six years. The Panthers won last year’s match-up, 31-30, and are 5-2 overall against Jasper all-time. The next chapter in this series will continue tonight at Jasper, when the Wildcats, at 10-1 and ranked No. 6 in Class 4A, host Reitz (8-3).
