Boys Varsity Football · 2018 IHSAA State Football Tournament Week One Sectional 22: Beech Grove Hornets @ Mooresville Pioneers- 7pm

The days are getting shorter and the evening air is getting crisper which can only mean one thing,  the 2018 Indiana High School Athletic Association State Football Tournament has arrived and will begin in earnest Friday October 19th across the State of Indiana.  One of those games will be played right here in the Town of Mooresville where the Mooresville Pioneers will host the Beech Grove Hornets in opening round action in Sectional 22 play,  kickoff scheduled for 7pm.

The Pioneers are entering the 4A State Tournament with an 8-1 record,  a seven game turnaround from 2017 (1-8) and with it,  a share of the 2018 Mid State Conference Championship (6-1).  The Beech Grove Hornets come into the tournament with a 6-3 record finishing a very respectable 5-2 (third) in the Indiana Crossroads Conference just behind Conference Champion Scecina (7-0) and Triton Central (6-1).  Both the Mooresville Pioneers and the Beech Grove Hornets are aware of what is at stake Friday evening,  the winner advances to the sectional 22 semi final (Connorsville/Richmond),  the loser’s season will conclude.

Thank you to all parents, families, students, friends, fans, Administration, and Town of Mooresville for the support all season and we look forward to seeing all of you Friday night for Sectional 22 game one vs. Beech Grove at 7pm.
