Boys Varsity Football · Friday Night Lights Week 8: Martinsville @ Mooresville (7pm)

The 9th ranked (4A-IFCA Poll) Mooresville Pioneers (6-1, 4-1 in Mid State Conference) will be back in action Friday night at home in a 7pm matchup with Mid State Conference rival Martinsville.  The Pioneers are coming off a tremendous come from behind win last week where they defeated the Whiteland Warriors 21-17 on their last drive with less than 2 minutes to play and no time outs.  Martinsville, ranked 6th in 5A (IFCA Poll)  comes into Friday nights ballgame with an identical 6-1 record (4-1 in Mid State Conference)  defeating the Perry Meridian Falcons in week seven,  63-25.

Friday nights contest between the Mooresville Pioneers and the Martinsville Artesians will pit two teams with similar statistics through 7 weeks.  Mooresville is putting up an average of 381.4 total yards per game (39.9 PPG) with the Artesians averaging 367.9 total yards per week (36.1 PPG).  The Pioneers average 158 yards on the ground and 381.4 yards through the air with Martinsville averaging 205.1 yards on the ground and 162.7 passing yards.  Defensively the Pioneers are making an average of 71.6 tackles on 1.4 sack per ballgame with the Artesians making an average of 82.9 tackles, sacking the quarterback 1.6 times a game.

As the regular season draws to an end the action on the field for the Pioneers continues to heat up.  Friday nights ballgame looks to be one of if not the hottest tickets South of Indianapolis during week 8 of the Indiana High School Football season.  The Mooresville Pioneers Varsity Football team once again would like to say thank you to all parents, families, students, friends, fans, Administration, and the Town of Mooresville for the support, it is so much appreciated.  We look forward to seeing everyone on Friday evening for the 7pm kickoff,  it is suggested to arrive early,  it looks to be a very action packed night!
