Northwest Indians Team News

The Northwest Indians and Jackson Polar Bears enter their Week 7 matchup tonight at Robert Fife Stadium each sporting two-game losing streaks.

The Indians and Bears got to this point in somewhat similar fashions, especially in their losses last week.

Here's our guide to Week 7 action:

When  Friday, 7 p.m.

Where  Robert Fife Stadium

WHEN  7 p.m., Friday
LAST WEEK  Central Catholic 35, Northwest 7; McKinley 36, Jackson 24
LAST MEETING  Jackson won 36-30 last year.

COLUMBUS  For the third straight week, unbeaten Central Catholic leads its region in the Ohio High School Athletic Association weekly football computer ratings. The ratings are released every Tuesday afternoon, leading up to the final report Nov.

PERRY TWP.  Central Catholic had a lot in common with the rain Friday at Lowell Klinefelter Field — steady, relentless and, at times, overwhelming.

CANAL FULTON  When the Northwest Indians suffered a 38-7 defeat against Poland earlier this season, there wasn’t much gnashing of teeth or wringing of hands.

Instead, Northwest football coach Vic Whiting viewed the loss as a simple case of “getting beat by a better team.”


Here's our guide to Week 6 action:

They have familiarity with each other.

They have respect for each other.

What the Central Catholic and Northwest football programs do not have is any history of playing each other.

That changes Friday at 7 p.m. when the two schools — located about 15 miles apart — meet at Central Catholic.
