South Oldham since the first of the year is 10-3 and currently riding a 5 game win streak. The Dragons are undefeated in district play. South has averaged a 6 point win against their county opponents and defeated Trimble County handily earlier this season. Oldham County comes in with an 11-3 record since the first of the year and is riding a 9 game win streak. The Colonels have averaged a 7 point advantage against district competition this year. North Oldham has a 12-3 record since the first of the year with a modest 4 game win streak. Going 2-1 in district competition, the Mustangs defeated Oldham County by 7, fell to South by 7 and took care of Trimble County by 49. Speaking of the Raiders, Trimble County went winless in district play and by double digits.
The North Oldham/Oldham County game will be the most interesting with the winner more than likely getting South in the championship. I haven't heard of any major injuries to any of the teams, so let the excitement begin.
