WHY TO WATCH: One of the goals Delta had coming into the 2019 season was to win the Hoosier Heritage Conference championship. It can earn a tie for the title if it beats New Palestine at home, but the challenge is daunting. The Dragons have allowed more than 9 points in a game just twice in eight contests this year, and they have given up just six in the past three games (two of which were shutouts). The Eagles have been strong on offense and defense this season, but this opponent represents a far difference obstacle. New Palestine has Indiana’s all-time leading rusher in Charlie Spegal, who Delta knows well. Spegal transferred from Delta to New Palestine after his sophomore season and this year broke the state record for career rushing yards (currently he has 9,433). He leads the state this year with 1,734 rushing yards and 35 touchdowns (18 in the past three games).
