    St. Xavier vs. Highlands Predictions (KHSAA State Finals)

    The Tigers are headed into the finals as favorites. The Bluebirds have something to say about that.

    Who do you think wins this one?

    The Tigers have been rolling, but had an uncharacteristic 1-0 win over Henry Clay in the semifinals. Henry Clay and Highlands played back in August, and the Birds won 2-0 over the Blue Devils. More recently, the Tigers beat South Oldham 6-1 in the first round of the tournament, a team that Highlands beat 3-0 about two weeks prior on October 6th.

    Not to highjack this thread; but, someone needs to please link the winning Highlands goal from yesterday's 2-1 semifinal victory. Got to be Sports Center Top 10. Most unbelieveable goal these eyes have ever seen.

    I'm absolutely rooting for the Birds to get the win, but if I had to make a prediction, I'd take St. X 3-1 (with Schweitzer getting the lone goal for Highlands).
