All season long, Indiana high school football fans have been wondering, who’s No. 1 in the Hoosier State. Friday night, fans saw it for themselves as High School Football America Indiana Top 10 No. 1 Center Grove beat No. 2 Cathedral 17-13 in a battle of teams also ranked highly in the High School Football America 100 national rankings.
This one came down to the final :79 seconds; Cathedral led 13-10 with a fourth-and-1 at the Center Grove 44. Instead of punting CG deep into its own territory, the Irish decided to go for it and the Trojan defense came-up with a stop.
Center Grove then marched 54 yards and won the game with a touchdown pass between Tayven Jackson and Trent Veith with :14 seconds to play.
Both teams now head into the postseason. CG will play Columbus North in the opening round of the 6A playoffs, while After a week off next week, Cathedral opens the 5A postseason against Terre Haute South on October 30.
