Week Two Review:

Madisonville has continued its dominance and remains a top the rankings. Webster has shown even more why it’s the second best team in the region. Christian County is starting to separate itself from the others, while a host of mid tier teams battle it out for the 4-10 spots. Caldwell County has fallen off the face of the earth and still winless, and Fort Campbell and Lyon County continue to surprise. Here are week two’s rankings for region 2:
