    Newport Central Catholic at Belfry

    The Newport Catholic Throroughbreds make the long trek into the mountains of eastern KY Friday night to take on the Pirates of Belfry. CAM Stadium should be rocking for this matchup of perennial powers.

    Both teams are considered contenders for a title year-in and year-out in their respective classes, and despite the long distance between them, this is a fun and interesting regular season game. Belfry has had the upper hand in the series recently, but you can expect a competitive game that is beneficial to both squads.

    NewCath is 1-2, and Belfry is 1-1, but both teams tend to "schedule up" and are willing to take a loss or two during the regular season in an effort to test their mettle against bigger and better teams.

    Hopefully the large 'Bred fan contingent will make the trip and we will have a ballgame on Friday.

    What is the status of Kyle Kelly for NewCath. If he is out, this one could get out of hand.

    With or without Kelly, Belfry by 35+. NewCath just isn’t very good.

    Belfry's offense looked much improved with the return of starting QB Avery Browning last Friday against Bryan Station. Don't see NCC being able to slow down the Pirates at home.

    Belfry by 28+

    Belfry's secondary is young, how good is the NewCath passing game?

    Against Scott & Cooper passing game was good. Kremer set a new school record for passing and TD’s in the Copper game. If he is on that is a strength for them providing he has time if the Oline is blocking.

    Hey Watusi. Coming down for the game. Looking forward to it. Hear it's a great place to play. Any "Can't Miss" places we should eat at before the game??

    NewCath has been able to hang with Belfry for a Half or so it seems... I think this year's game resembles last years. NewCath should be able to find some points.

    Belfry 54-24

    I'll say 28-17 at the Half and then Belfry opens it up in the 3rd Quarter.
