It will be a battle of undefeateds when Reitz takes on Central this Friday night at Reitz Bowl. The Panthers bring a 3-0 record into their first city game of the year, while the Bears are 2-0 (NOTE: Central is now 3-0, as the IHSAA ruled that the Bears’ Week 1 game against North Oldham (Ky.), previously considered a cancellation, is now a forfeit).
Reitz is 1-0 in the SIAC while Central is 1-0 in the league and city.
In the oldest rivalry between city schools, the Panthers lead the series, 68-30-4. While Reitz has won the past two meetings, the Bears had won the prior two.
