The football sectional draw was held Sunday and the games are just two weeks away. The postseason starts Oct. 24 and no matter how the season went, teams have a chance to make a run.

North Montgomery and Crawfordsville compete in 3A Sectional 29. There are four teams in the sectional that are ranked in either the media or coaches poll.

In the coaches' poll, Tri-West (7-1) is ranked No. 3. They will take on West Vigo in the opening round. The winner will play either Brebeuf (5-3) or Crawfordsville (2-6). Brebeuf is ranked No. 6 in the coaches' poll.

"As a team we are focused on this week and will think about sectionals when that gets here, our focus is Tri-West this week," Crawfordsville head coach Mike Hammons responded when asked about the sectional draw.

On the other side of the bracket, Edgewood (7-1) will take on Greencastle (3-5). The winner will get either Western Boone (6-2) or North Montgomery (5-3).

"We knew they were a possible sectional opponent when we played them last week. We told the boys about that and how it would be good to get a quality win against a sectional opponent," Charger head coach Josh Thompson said about the draw. "So, now it is just going to be a matter of preparing, fixing any mistakes and trying to determine what they might try to do to attack us now."

The Stars are most recently ranked No. 15 in the coaches' poll after North Montgomery beat them 8-0 at home Friday. The Chargers are not ranked in the coaches' poll, but are No. 16 in the media poll.

"I'm sure it will be some motivation to get back that loss. You know something we will focus on is making sure our kids don't overlook it with the previous win," Thompson said. "We will have to get back to work and make sure we are ready to go out and play our game again."

The Braves and Bruins are the sectional favorites, and they are on the same side of the bracket, meaning they would meet in the semifinals instead of the finals. North Montgomery can also stay away from either until a potential sectional championship matchup.

"I'd say it was a benefit of the draw having those two teams on the opposite of the bracket (away from North Montgomery)," Thompson said. "Given that they are both quality teams and that we have played both before. So, that is a benefit, but then again we will take it one game at a time and work our way through.

"Yeah, I think it is a pretty good draw for us. I think it is one of the better scenarios that could have come out for us, but then again we will focus on it week by week like we tried to do this season and prepare for who comes along. So, we will go from there," Thompson added. "We will mention it to the guys, but then we will get right back to preparing for Danville."

In 2A, Southmont (2-6) is in Sectional 35. Joining them will be No. 3/No. 4 Lafayette Central Catholic (6-2) and No. 5 Lewis Cass (7-1). Cass and LCC are on opposite ends of the bracket and are favored to meet in the sectional championship.

Southmont will open at Delphi (4-4) against the Oracles, who eliminated them from the second round of the sectional last year. A win would match Southmont with LCC, who takes on a Taylor (0-8) squad that hasn't won a game since Sept. 9, 2011. Southmont has won one sectional game in each of the last two seasons.

North Montgomery last won the sectional in 2008. Their only two prior to that were in 1995 and 1996 when they went on to win back-to-back state title.

Crawfordsville last won a sectional in 1989 and 1983. They also won the regional both years. Southmont has never won a football sectional.
