JASPER, IND. – The road to the playoffs just got a lot rockier for the Mt. Carmel Golden Aces.

After surviving a tentative start on Friday night in Jasper, the Aces steamrolled through the middle two quarters only to falter down the stretch in a 36-32 Big 8 Conference loss.

Mt. Carmel now stands 3-3 on the season. With five the minimum number of wins needed to get back into the IHSA playoffs after a one-year absence, the Aces must win two of the final three games of the season.

That means at least one win against the top two teams in the Big 8 standings, Vincennes Lincoln (5-2, this Friday’s guest at Riverview Stadium) and undefeated Boonville (7-0) to go along with non-conference finale Mt. Vernon, Ill. (1-5).

MT. CARMEL, ILL. – All season long, Mt. Carmel has pointed to the next three games on its’ schedule as a decisive stretch that could make or break any playoff aspirations.

Now that that part of the schedule is at hand, the Golden Aces do feel better about their chances, especially since they have found their missing offense. Just in time.

After scoring just 38 points in the first three games of the season, the Aces have turned things around in dramatic fashion, scoring 110 points in the last two weeks.

“Sure, we’re starting to click a little bit on offense so you feel good about that,” said Mt. Carmel coach Michael Brewer after his team’s 61-20 Homecoming victory over Washington on Friday night at Riverview Stadium. “We feel like we have some things we can do now, and some different ways to attack.” 

Mt. Carmel (3-2, 1-2 in Big 8 Conference) plays at Jasper (2-4, 1-2) this Friday night. It’s not been a kind venue for the Aces, who won there for the first time in six tries in 2016.
