The skinny: Why is this not the Game of the Week? Because most had a feeling this would be the pseudo DAC title game before the season began. Merrillville has dominated the series between these two schools dating back well before LC joined the DAC. The Pirates have won 22 of 23 against LC, including 16 straight. The key for each talented defense to stopping the other offense comes down to the running backs — Bryant Isabell for Merrillville and Brandon Scott for Lake Central. Scott had 136 yards on 26 carries in a victory over Chesterton last week.
