Hunting season


Jimmy Lafakis, Author

Last time the Indians traveled across I-94 to the Wolves Den, Michigan City sank their fangs into the Tribe. The 20-16 loss in the 2012 season was a stinger.

Athletes are trained to exercise a short memory, but the Indians did not forget the bitter tang of defeat. An odor of revenge wafts over Lake Michigan.

LC (4-1, 3-0 DAC) is steamrolling any and all competition right now. They are towering over any and all challengers who dare cross their path. Michigan City (3-2, 1-2 DAC) will be fully equipped tonight, as quarterback Ryan Washington (12) will return from a concussion.

After losing their first contest to the Munster Mustangs, the Indians have held teams up to 11 points per game. The Wolves have won two of the last five meetings, and they look to defend the Den tonight.

As is customary in 2014, the student sections have waged a social media war. The LC Fan Section (@lcfanssection) and the Den Delirium (@DenDelirium) have joined in on the friendly banter. Both schools claim the title of “Best Student Section in the 219.”

After the kickoff at 7 p.m., the action between the white lines will take precedence. All scores will be settled at Ames Field.
