ETFCU Border Bowl Football Challenge

Evansville Teachers Federal Credit Union is proud to partner with eight outstanding high school football teams in hosting the Evansville Teachers Federal Credit Union Border Bowl Football Challenge in the second week of the 2018 season. There will be a pair of double-headers contested on Evansville turf:

Friday, August 24, at Reitz Bowl

  • 5 p.m., Evansville Reitz vs. Owensboro
  • 7:30 p.m., Evansville Mater Dei vs. Apollo

Saturday, August 25, at Enlow Field

  • 4 p.m., Evansville Central vs. Daviess County
  • 6:30 p.m., Evansville Memorial vs. Owensboro Catholic

Tickets will be available at the participating schools’ athletic offices in August. Entry to each double-header will be only $7. The double-headers are not part of season-ticket packages for any of the schools. Along with state bragging rights, the teams will be playing for ETFCU Border Bowl Football Challenge trophies.

“This has been a great series and we’re just very happy that Evansville Teachers Federal Credit Union stepped up to partner with us and bring the games to Evansville,” said Andy Owen, the former Central coach and current Evansville Vanderburgh School Corp. athletics director. “These have always been great games to see different competition.”

Last year, in Owensboro, Evansville schools swept two double-headers: Central 49, Apollo 7; Mater Dei 21, Owensboro 20 (OT); Memorial 58, Daviess County 33; Reitz 34, Owensboro Catholic 0.

Evansville Teachers Federal Credit Union has 15 branches, including six in Evansville and two in Owensboro. With more than 200,000 members, the fastest-growing credit union in Indiana supports non-profits in the Tri-State with more than $500,000 in donations and sponsorships annually, and awards $50,000 in scholarships to high school seniors each year.
