Plenty on line for Aces

MT. CARMEL – When Mt. Carmel upset Vincennes last week to create a three-way tie atop the Big 8 Conference football standings, it was a special win, according to Golden Aces coach Darren Peach.

“It was a signature win for those guys, against a quality team who was 7-0,” he said.

But without a win tonight at Boonville in the Big 8 finale, the probability of a three-way league championship – similar to 2006 with Jasper and Vincennes sharing with the Aces – will go by the wayside.

“We have a lot to play for and a lot to prove,” said Peach, noting that the conference crown is just one piece of Week 8 importance. The Aces still need one win to ensure qualification for the Illinois playoffs for the ninth consecutive season and 32nd time in the past 33 years.

Aces define their season with win

MT. CARMEL – It was what Mt. Carmel football coach Darren Peach called “a defining moment” for his Golden Aces.

Never given a chance against undefeated and state-ranked Vincennes Lincoln Saturday, the Aces (18-point underdogs, according to calpreps.com), rose up with perhaps their best defensive effort of the season and just enough offense to knock off the Alices, 24-21, to forge a three-way tie at the top of the Big 8 Conference.

They probably cheered just as loudly in Jasper as the Wildcats, 47-0 conquerors of Mt. Carmel last week after an earlier 35-34 overtime loss to Vincennes, are now a part of the triumvirate, all with 4-1 Big 8 marks with one week left in the league season.
