Linton, North Central rematch for sectional title


FARMERSBURG, Ind. (WTHI) — The state football tournament continues Friday in Indiana, as Linton is in the hunt for its sixth-straight sectional championship.

The Miners travel to North Central for a rematch of their week 9 contest. It’s also a rematch of last year’s sectional title game between the Miners and Thunderbirds.

When these teams met earlier in the season, Linton cruised to a 52-8 victory.

This is the first time in school history that North Central has appeared in back-to-back sectional championship games.

Despite the result from earlier in the season, both coaches say anything can happen in the playoffs.
