The Monroe County High School Falcons have put together a pretty good season this year. Going into Friday’s Senior Night matchup against South Warren, the Falcons are 5-2 on the year with losses to powerhouses Wayne County and Glasgow. Monroe County’s offense, guided by sophomore quarterback Lincoln Arnett, has moved the ball well and is averaging almost 30 points per game.
The Falcons’ ability to put points on the board could be put to the test on Friday against the Spartans as South Warren, 7-1 on the year, has one of the stingiest defenses in the state. The Spartans have allowed only 11 points on the season, three points to Hart County and eight points to Daviess County.
“I think South Warren is a very good football team. This is the year they’ve been waiting for and they have great talent,” said Monroe County coach John Petett. “They do a great job of preparing their team. And this is probably the most fundamentally sound team we will face all year. They don’t make very many mistakes and that’s why they’ve given up only 11 points all year. And I don’t care who you’re playing, if you give up only 11 points in a season, you’re doing something right.”
Kickoff is set for 7 p.m. Friday.
