    2A #4 Lexington Christian Academy vs. #6 Somerset

    The Eagles (7-0) are averaging a state best 54 ppg. They've dropped 69 and 76 points, respectively, in their last two games and have topped 40 in every game so far. QB Logan Nieves and RB Dillon Wheatley have combined for 1,748 and 30 TDs on the ground. Nieves has thrown for an additional 17 scores.

    Somerset (5-3) saw its modest, but impressive four game winning streak come to an end with a valiant effort in defeat against top ranked Danville.

    This has been a competitive district rivalry in recent years. Including playoff rematches, Somerset won five in a row from 2011-2013. LCA has responded with four straight wins since.

    Not much chatter on this game, I guess most figure it is a foregone conclusion who will win.

    I really like this Somerset squad. But, they're a good team stuck in a brutal district. I just don't think they can match LCA, score for score.

    I'm the only one giving them any credit.

    Somerset didn't get going in the first half against Danville. The Ads may have coasted a little in the second half and let the score get closer than the game was. I think LCA is going to score a lot and in a hurry. It will be harder to come out in the second half and compete if your down by 35 to 40. Somerset has to find a way to keep it close in the first half.

    The formula is simple when you face an offense like LCA's.

    1. Your offense has to control the time of possession and keep their offense off the field.

    2. Your defense has to prevent big plays, make LCA grind out drives and find a way to get stops. Third down plays are huge. Get stops and get the LCA offense off the field.
