1A Notebook (9/11) - Indian Summer

By Voice of Reason - We have all heard that term - Indian Summer. This week sure feels like Indian Summer as the heat cranks its way back up into the 90's. It is heating up on the football fields in 1A also, and I am not talking about the temperature. Teams now have 2 or 3 games under their belts and things are getting interesting. We started this season with the thought that 1A was Pikeville's class to run away with. That thought got a heat check this past week as the Paintsville Tigers put a serious scare into the Panthers, with Pikeville eeking out a 9-8 win. That wasn't the only game where the heat got...

Class 2A Notebook 9/10- A Separation and a Renaissance

By ATLCat - Two Rivers Moving in The Opposite Direction… A watershed is the geographical area where the flow of water literally is defined. Depending on which side of the watershed you are on, you could find the same rainstorm flowing in two opposite directions. Friday night Class 2A may have found a watershed moment between two of its top teams, Somerset and Beechwood, as the two faced off in a battle of Pre-Season Top 3 ranked teams. Beechwood entered the year as the new kid on the block with all the popularity coming with them. The Tigers were the three-time reigning 1A Champs and from reputation...

By theguru - Class 1A For those that thought Pikeville was on track to runaway with the Class 1A title, Paintsville proved that the Panthers definitely will need to pack a lunch come November. The Panthers eventually prevailed 9-8 to retain the top spot, but it is now clear that Pikeville will still see their share of challenges, including a game versus Raceland this week. Campbellsville played hard but came up short against 3A Taylor County, they will get another Semi-Finalist from last year when Larue County hosts them. Crittenden County is a team lying in the tall grass, we will all get to see if... Read More →

Class 4A Notebook (9/8): A Statement Loss

By DragonFire - Lexington Catholic has been viewed as a solid team, but a team that is outside the elite tier that features Boyle County and Johnson Central. Last week when I made their matchup against 5A #2 Covington Catholic our 4A Game of the Week, I said if a statement was available to made this week, it was right here. And boy, did Lexington Catholic make that statement. After Covington Catholic took an early 7-0 lead, the air barrage began by Beau Allen.

For much of the night it looked like the Cardinals of Taylor County were the birds in distress.
