It’s #ReitzvsMaterDei for #ReitzFootballFriday Week 9 presented by Tracy Zeller Jewelry

201509This Friday night, as they do every year, Reitz will battle Mater Dei for the West Side Nut Club Championship.

But this year is different. The stakes have never been higher.

True, both teams have been undefeated going into this game before.

True, it has also been winner-take-all for the city and Southern Indiana Athletic Conference championships.

Never, though, have those been true AND both West Side schools were ranked No. 1 in their respective class. It’ll be history in the making.

Additionally, whenever one of the teams went into the game ranked No. 1, that school, whether it was Reitz or Mater Dei, won the game. Both are No. 1, so something’s got to give.

The Panthers lead the series, which began in 1952, 44 games to 19.

The Panthers lead the series, 44-19. Andy Hape is 27-6 overall and 0-2 against the Wildcats. Mater Dei head coach Mike Goebel is 192-51 overall and 9-9 against Reitz.

Both are 8-0 overall in 2015, with a 6-0 SIAC record and 5-0 city record.

They have met twice in the regular season finale when both were 8-0, in 2010 and last year. Reitz won the first time, and Mater Dei won last year’s.

Kickoff is scheduled for 7 p.m.
