Tribe Sports Report

Mississinewa Football will look to close out the CIC and regular season this Friday at Alexandria after rolling past Frankton this weekend 69-0 at Fisher Field. The Indians are now 6-2 (4-2 CIC) on the season. Heisman Skeens, cade Campbell, and Cade McCoin were very active on the offensive side of the ball, but a huge story was laid when Dustin Patton scored his first touchdown of his career and Jay Jones completed a 73 yard touchdown while being left wide open. The defense held their opponent scoreless for the third straight game. If Mississinewa wins the opening round they could play at home again in the sectional Semifinals against either Delta or Marion.
