A potential 1-vs-2 matchup in Class 4A won't happen after all. Only one half of the equasion survived.

Second-ranked Cathedral took care of business against Greenwood, using a strong second half to get past the Woodmen 38-14, but top-ranked New Palestine found themselves the victim of an upset.

Hoosier Heritage Conference rival Pendleton Heights took an early lead and never let it go in handing the Dragons their first loss of the year 24-13.

John Broughton's Arabians will host Cathedral next Friday at home for the Regional Championship.

The Arabians showed there would be no repeat of the game in September in the first half when the dominated the pace of play. The opened the scoring when quarterback Mitch Patishall pushed in a touchdown from a yard out to make it 7-0. 

While struggling to find rhythm, the Dragons managed to stay strong on defense and evened the score in the second quarter on a touchdown pass from Connor Simmons to Tyler Walden.

Patishall had a quick answer on the following drive, finding Austin Coffel down the field for a 37-yard score to put the Arabians to lead lead at 14-7 going into halftime.

Those two would connect for another touchdown in the second half and a tough Pendleton Heights defense never let the Dragons into it, capturing a surprising Sectional 13 championship.

A similar scenario seemed to be unfolding at North Central High School where Cathedral was hosting Greenwood for the Sectional 14 championship.

The Woodmen's Ben Heller completed a 16-yard touchdown pass to Brandon Baughman in the second quarter to give Greenwood a 14-10 lead.

But after that it was all Irish. Corey Babb snuck one in from a yard out to give Cathedral a three-point lead at the half and his touchdown pass to Sampson Levingston at the end of the third quarter gave the Irish a 24-14 advantage.

Gino Gillum opened it up more in the fourth quarter with a seven-yard touchdown run and Drake Myers' 72-yard interception return put a cap on yet another Cathedral Sectional 14 championship.
