Bradford Preview Capsule


Racine Park (3-5, 2-4 SEC) at Bradford (2-6, 2-4 SEC)

When: 7 tonight

Where: Bradford Stadium (3700 Washington Rd.)

Broadcast: WLIP-AM 1050

Series note: The Red Devils have dominated over the last 10 seasons, winning all 10 matchups by an average of 27.4 points per game. … Last year’s game was close, however, as Bradford rushed for 256 yards and held on for a 17-12 Week 7 victory at Bradford Stadium. … The Panthers’ last victory in the series was a 28-25 win in Week 5 of the 2008 season.

Player to watch: Bradford coach Troy Bowe singled out senior offensive lineman Jake Sykora (6-4, 290 pounds) as a key in tonight’s game.

Key stat: Bradford is averaging just 8.5 points per game, while Park has allowed just 15.4 per game, including a pair of shutouts.

FYI: Both teams are eliminated from automatic postseason eligibility and have very little chance to make the playoffs. But the winner would finish with three conference victories and at least enter the conversation for a postseason berth via tiebreaker with other state teams. … Under second-year coach Danny Hernandez, a former St. Joseph standout, the Panthers’ two SEC wins so far this season are their most since going 3-4 in 2011. From 2012-18, Park went 3-46 in SEC play.
