    5A #4 South Oldham vs. 6A Boone County

    Following a bye week, the Dragons (2-1) blew out county rival North Oldham 46-0. South Oldham ran all over the Mustangs to the tune of 360 yards. They now welcome the Rebels of Boone County, who notched their first win of the season last week over Holmes, 49-0.

    The last time this was played in Oldham County it was a slug fest for three quarters then South Oldham pulled away. I expected that kind of game last year in Owen Hauck stadium but it didn't turn out that way. Boone fumbled the ball on the first 3 possessions and S. Oldham took advantage and jumped out to a quick lead from which they never looked back. Our line was dominated on both sides of the ball and it was a very difficult night for Boone County fans.

    Unfortunately, I don't know much about South Oldham and would like some insight from any of you who know. It looks like to me that they run the ball a lot and give it to #21 a good bit of the time. He is short and stocky and appears to run with some power. It doesn't look fancy but apparently it is effective. Keaton Martin has over 300 yards in 3 games while the whole team averages nearly 250 yards on the ground each game.

    This game will be won in the trenches. Boone must stop Martin and the running attack. Boone needs to stop turning the ball over. When you struggle scoring points it certainly puts you in a hole when you give the ball away.

    The run game for Boone is working. But the passing game is not. It looks like the receivers are not where they need to be on the routes so that Grau can't get comfortable throwing to a spot. He also needs more time before he has to scramble. If the Dragons come out strong and shut the run down, Boone has no where else to go. The most reliable passing has come from short passes to the backs. It was nice to see Wingo get in the run game last week. He has the speed to break long runs and he had two go for TDs. He usually plays out wide but he lined up as RB and it worked well.

    We'll see how it goes tomorrow night.

    Go Rebels!

    South Oldham's offense will always be run first. They return from last season FB Keaton Martin (JR), WB JT Benson (JR) and WB Colton Bowlden (SR). All three are outstanding runners and receivers. QB Anthony Pierce (JR) is a very capable runner. South can run up the middle and they have the speed to get around the edge. The passing game has yet to really come around to where it has been in the past. Leading WR Ethan Bednarczyk (JR) can especially hurt you deep if you are not paying attention.

    I think the defense is better than last year. The addition of Cade White at OLB makes a pretty good LB Corp way better. Adds speed at the position. The DB's are pretty good and the safeties very good with lots of experience.

    Should be a fun game tonight. Looking forward to it.

    We have had some trouble paying attention.
