The IHSAA announced the pairings for the 2008 football sectional Tuesday night and some familiar foes will be facing off in the first round on Oct. 24.
In the 3A No. 21 sectional, Greencastle will host the Mounties of Southmont. Southmont and Greencastle face only one common opponent during the season, that being North Putnam. Greencastle fell to the Cougars 35-0, while Southmont was dismantled by North Putnam, losing 61-7.
The last time the Mounties and Tiger Cubs faced off was way back in 1997, when Southmont knocked GHS out of the first round of sectional 49-0.
A lot of eyes will be on the northern part of the county when the Class 2A No. 30 gets underway. Perhaps the marquee match up of the 2A sectional will be the South Putnam and North Putnam rematch.
The two teams met up on Sept. 12, with the Cougars walking away with a tough 20-6 victory. South Putnam's Drew Cash and North Putnam's Griffen Dahlstrom duked it out, with both runners going over 100 yards with a touchdown each.
The talk of a possible sectional rematch was on the lips of fans shortly after the game and now they'll get what they've asked for.
In the other game, Cloverdale heads east to Monrovia, an opponent they faced in week three of the season.
Cloverdale had a very rough outing, losing a fullback and starting quarterback to injuries and having a difficult time moving the ball in the process. The Clovers were only able to muster 66 rushing yards and 24 passing yards in the loss.
Each of the sectional game will begin at 7 p.m. Oct. 24.
