Here's a look at some of the other games Friday night involving local teams.

North Posey 40, Southridge 28: The Raiders (1-2, 0-1) opened up their Pocket Athletic Conference Small School Division campaign with a loss. They trailed, 14-7, after the first quarter and never looked back. Vikings senior Harold Bender was 20-of-21 passing for 261 yards and three touchdowns. 

However, senior fullback Aidan Jochem shined once again for Southridge, having his third straight multi-score game. Jochem had 23 carries for 207 yards on the ground and two touchdowns. The Raiders hope to bounce back Sept. 10 at home against Pike Central.

Tell City 14, Forest Park 10: The Rangers (1-2, 0-1) have now dropped back-to-back games, including Friday's PAC Small School opener. Tell City had more time of possession and outran the Rangers, 158 yards to 84 yards. The team's lone touchdown came from sophomore Joel Bueltel on a nine-yard run in the fourth quarter. Forest Park will try to get back to .500 Sept. 10 at home against Tecumseh.  

Heritage Hills 14, Boonville 12: The Patriots (2-1, 1-1) are now above .500 for the first time since the 2019 Class 3A State Runner-Up finish. Junior Skyler Staples had 13 carries for 79 yards and a touchdown run. The Pioneers had the chance to tie late in the game on Friday, but the Pats stopped them when going for two. Heritage Hills will hope to make it three in a row Sept. 10 at South Spencer.
